YES, But Within a Virtue Framework!

Virtues are the minimum and the Greeks set the bar. Greatest number versus greatest happiness is a measure of the State. Individuals are more complicated; the cascading impulses predict behaviour irregardless of the "greater outcome".

YES, But Within a Virtue Framework!

The said truth is that it is the greatest happiness of the greatest number that is the measure of right and wrong.

- Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832)

The Pillars of Society are Built on Ethics

YES, But Within a Virtue Framework!

Inspired by Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832)'s quote, "The said truth is that it is the greatest happiness of the greatest number that is the measure of right and wrong." The titled responsion is an ontology of sorts.

Easily refuted, Utilitarian ethics are based on happiness but this would be missing the point and the value of this Bentham/Mill framework. The other pillar of ethics is coupled with virtue ethics and brought together by a metaphorical keystone of Big Data. At least that's the hypothesis. Virtues are the minimum and the Greeks set the bar. The greatest number versus greatest happiness is a measure of the State. Individuals are more complicated; the cascading impulses predict behaviour despite the "greater outcome".

And Morality is the Basis of (Social) Consciousness

Inspired by Arthur Schopenhauer (1788–1860)’s quote, “Compassion is the basis of morality.”. The titled responsion is foundational to our understanding of culture. If you doubt what I am saying, we are both on the right track.

The question is whether or not we require a religiousness ethic to orient the flock? Some say yes, I say, it depends on where we are at in history. Faced with great uncertainty, our propensity to abstract and create is cultural in nature. These accelerated forces of evolution are an epiphenomenal manifestation, embodied through the metaphors and enacted through our rituals of behaviour. Mixing autonomy with the habitual is foundational to a virtue-based culture where consensus is unanimous, o sepi to poli.

More or Less - O Sepi to Poli
More-or-less is the welded watch-word for Aristotle’s phrase, “o sepi to poli”. For the most part, more-or-less, o sepi to poli! Forget Jesus as the fictionalized hero, the new meridian is Norm!

Life a Long Life!

Inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)'s quote, "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." The titled responsion is

This smells like plausible deniability and self-justification for what ails you. Often used as an excuse, the makes you stronger argument acts as a one-sided condemnation towards the struggle of a lifetime.
