Rearranging deck chairs on the H.M.S. Titanic...
"But even what the Nazis managed to do pales in comparison with the depth and breadth of the Islamic Borg-like replacement of human culture with its new inhuman totalitarian culture."I suppose this has everything to do with the fact that Nazism doesn't support the idea that one can turn into an Übermensch, i.e. one can not 'graduate' to become an Aryan. Which is why the totalitarian universalism of Islam carries more clout, let's say, because anyone can turn into a Muslim, either by violent coercion and Dawah, or because one thinks it makes sense, somehow. "Participants of this Neutral Umbrella can rethink and change their minds by jettisonning PC MC -- and still keep their precious Umbrella. Some may think the two are symbiotically interdependent; but a good case can be made that they are not, and that PC MC can be completely detached from the structure without one screw or nut or bolt coming loose."True, I believe. Too many people seem to automatically imply that moral relativism is an innate 'quality' of the secular framework, without thinking twice about it. I think we ought to reassert the merits of the secular umbrella more explicitly like - let's say - Thomas Jefferson would have done in his day, but Westerners are becoming way too complacent to discard this ridiculous notion.
BTW, much of this brilliant post is actually summarizing a great deal of my own thoughts on this issue, better than I could possibly have done.
Thanks Anathematic Action, I appreciate your compliment."Too many people seem to automatically imply that moral relativism is an innate 'quality' of the secular framework, without thinking twice about it."I'd say the secular framework is neither relativist nor absolutist, but is in a tension between the two.
