THE LIMIT OF COMMERCIAL SELF INTEREST
RE: Facebook, Twitter, Google, Quora, Stack Overflow, Medium, and all the rest of the ‘censors’….
The secret to the Success of the West in both the Ancient and Modern worlds, is the speaking of uncomfortable truths, no matter the cost, and regardless of impact on the competence, self image, status, and dominance hierarchies.
- Honor instead of Face.
- Duty instead of Security.
- Reciprocity instead of Proportionality
- Order instead of Equality.
- Truth, Beauty, and Goodness instead of Harmony.
- Heroism vs Obedience
- Aristocracy of Everyone vs Peasantry of Everyone.
It is this ‘disregard’ for ‘face’ that produced all of western civilization’s excellences: truth, jury, rule of law, reason, empiricism, science, technology, medicine, markets, and the fastest adaptation of culture, economy, law, and polity to circumstance that is possible for mankind.
By appealing to a world commercial market, where “Truth No Matter The Consequences” is not only unknown but anti social, and in many cases unethical, immoral, and highly offensive, we have let into our great civilization the antithesis of what made it great:
Paying the price of offense to produce all that flows from telling the truth – from opinion, to testimony, to scientific fact.
These companies, out of commercial self interest, are spending down the accumulated normative, cultural, traditional, intellectual, and institutional capital that we carefully accumulated over 3500 years of European evolution and development.
The most intolerant wins. One can be tolerant of Truth and Opinion and create western civilization. Or one can be intolerant of Truth, and Opinion and reverse western civilization.
What we are seeing is yet another invasion of intolerance, (first judaism and christianity), and now Judaism (Separatist Sophism), Postmodernism (Secular Christian Sophism), and Islam(Supernatural Conquest Sophism).
Every single act of suppression of dissent against those who take offense is a THEFT of the capital of western civilization. In economic terms this is called: The Privatization of Public Capital – what we call ‘The Commons”.
As I undrestand the situation, all of these companies are guilty of not only of (a) sedition, (b) conspiracy (c) massive privatization of the commons for commercial self interest, (d) use of proceeds and platform to coerce the state via the public to continue this privatization of the commons.
This is theft. Period. Plan and simple. And sedition as well.
