    Can we discuss something after Voltaire was born?

    Yeah, but we’ll cut R. Kelley a break, since he can “sing.”

    My defense of Aristotle is on record in past days. You Aristotle-haters can whip yourselves into a frenzy without me.

    Aristotle was wrong about a lot of things. So read my essay about “The Wrong Answer is the Right Answer When the Right Answer is a Military Secret” from my book “Speed Gospel From the Space City” (or just Space City Speed Gospel). The forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden was a military secret. The serpent asked Adam and Eve, “Do you want to be like angels? Angels know all the military secrets.”

    Wasn’t Aristotle a bugger for the bottle?

    Yes you can. Nobody is perfect, and quite certain you can find some less likable points about his actual rolemodels.

    Oh, there are and have been immoral geniuses. (There even are and have been immoral idiots who openly consider themselves geniuses.)

    Humans are complicated. None of us are purely good. None of us are purely evil. But anyone who expects either is purely naive.

    If you believe Aristotle was an idiot then you must accept that you also are an idiot. People living 2,000 in your future will know that many of your firmly held beliefs are laughably wrong, and they’ll find lots of your moral decisions horrendous. Or are you hoping to be judged as a product of your time?

    All celebrations are wrong because there is darkness in every soul.


    We could recognize the fact that all are flawed and celebrate any good.

    Attention is a form of reward and you get more of what you reward.

    I love how this is timely, controversial and funny. Should we condemn people from another century according to the standards of our time? More currently though, should we condemn people for mistakes made earlier in their own lifetime, especially if their behavior was considered unexceptional at the time? I am thinking here of a couple of Virginia politicians.

    It is impossible to be judgemental about someone after hundreds or thousands of years of hindsight. Something that has popular support today may be considered totally ignorant in a thousand years!
