DEFLATING AND DISAMBIGUATING VIRTUE SIGNALS
In Response to: @Bret Weinstein
Never tolerate virtue signaling, moral pretense, and solving for consensus as substitutes for decidable truth, full accounting of costs and returns, and solving the underlying problem of conflict. NO MORE LIES IN SOCIAL POLITICAL ECONOMIC AND LEGAL SCIENCE
The technique of “Baiting into moral hazard, by false promise, then defending with sophism, psychologizing, and moralizing, pseudoscience, and mysticism as seeking sympathetic cover for existential free riding, parasitism predation” is something I have studied thoroughly.
It is the female strategy of baiting calories with promise of approval, advocacy, attention, care, and sex – decreasing opportunity costs, without delivering – asymmetry of rewards. And using the opposite: disapproval, shaming, ridicule, gossip, rallying, and reputation destruction to defend her attempts.
Each civilization competes with the strategy available at the time of their foundational narrative, from the male to the female, originating in : Steppe > Tundra > Chinese > Japanese/Korean > European > Indian > Semitic(Hosted) > Gypsy (hosted).
Each civilization relies upon a method of negotiation, persuasion, argument, and law, that both in the past and present serves that competitive strategy. One can speak painfully truthfully under sovereignty and reciprocity and therefore non-conflict, or one can speak painfully deceptively under ir-reciprocity and subjection (non-sovereignty).
Each civilization competes against western Sovereignty/Reciprocity, Truth(Testimony)/Duty, Full Accounting/’Scientific’/Warrantied speech in literature, history, economics, natural law of reciprocity (tort), physical science, logic, and mathematics – by trying to preserve it’s frauds.
Once you see it, you can’t ‘unsee’ it.
My job, and the job of any philosopher in the 21st century, is to ensure EVERYONE SEES IT.
(These strategies are all open to evolutionary analysis.)
