MORE SOCIAL CONSTRUCTIVIST FRAUD
—“It does not claim that “reality” is socially constructed, that would be ridiculous. It claims that the means by which we conceive of reality is socially constructed, which seems pretty obvious really.”—- Twitterite
This is an artful conflation of terms of ‘reality’ (action), and ‘model’. Evidence is very clear that people distinguish between reality and model. The violence in video games being the most current example, or the greco roman distinction between religious myth and reality.
So even the the phrase ‘reality is socially constructed’ is an attempted fraud. The model we use to determine action in reality is and must be produced as a market good like any other, and is limited to the supply and demand of that market – like any other. However…
…. the narratives and VALUES we use to NEGOTIATE actions in reality are constructed within that market given the references and referents available. In other words, WE SOCIALLY CONSTRUCT LIES, we SCIENTIFICALLY DISCOVER TRUTHS. And those that work by truth compete best.
What surprises me is that it’s not obvious that there is a difference between reality and action and cost and imagination and speech, and not bearing a cost – and that those of us who have achieved in life in the markets for force and commerce, and those who achieve in life …
… in the market for fraud, are readily distinguished by whether we use the languages of truth, science, economics, and law, or the language of utility, theology, philosophy, and morality.
The fact that you (anyone who subscribes to neo-abrahamism) are speaking about the pseudoscientific origins of such a thing,rather than the GOALS TO ACHIEVE WITH IT, is merely another alt-right nerd-variation on memes. Yeah. Meme’s are fun. Yeah. Sophism is fun. Yes you’re witty.
But in the end you’re just poisoning the same well we eventually drink from. Words and priests are cheap, unwarrantied, and without cost. artists, soldiers, craftsmen, engineers, lawyers, accountants, executives, and financiers ACT to produce an end for which they pay the cost.
Social construction refers to our ability to create narratives like priests do that cost us nothing, but force costs on the people, by the process of creating moral hazard, by the process of diversion from truth. period.
You aren’t philosophers or scientists, but sophists using the ancient technique of deceit by priests with the pretension of special knowledge that doesn’t exist,to fool by complex language and suggestion those who are suckers -and the first sucker is always the man in the mirror.
