The World is No Longer Flat

Geometric analogies aside, the wisdom of assigning rigidity to models of human governance and conduct is problematic. The "anti-fragility" of non-Gaussian models of probabilities should be counterfactual to the protective projects under the bell curve.

The World is No Longer Flat

Hence no force, however great, can stretch a cord, however fine, into a horizontal line which is accurately straight: there will always be a bending downwards.

Immunity for Arrogance

"A bad liar is a bad lawyer indeed", or so the saying goes. This move towards probabilistic outcomes is systematic of the pendulum going too far. There is still room for ethics grounded in virtue. The law of the land should reflect this. Veil or no veil ignorance of the law is teachable; a pedagogy worth correcting. Look towards the ancient Greeks.

Blissful Ignorance

Blissfully ignorant or blissfully bookish? As one of history's great moralists claims, wisdom is bliss.

Using your illusion of allusions past and anticipating futurity, the narratives we inact self govern restrictions on individual freedoms. How do you see wisdom?  

Pandora's Paradox

In the key of see, we can no longer unsee the light of truth in a shade of Absolute. This is not a dogma of sorts, for that is a perversion in all formes and manifestations, but a harmony of perfection in a frequency all of humanity understands.
