|Aristotelian logic / Socratic inquiry|
Politicians, citizens, non-citizens, proletariat, bourgeoisie, small business owners, parents and students are creating a giant gap in the value of human capitol, "The Haves and the Have Nots"! Our hubris, platitudes, propaganda and beliefs are creating an ironic tragedy that Aristotle would easily recognize. We have declared war on all workers that don't create wealth from the ether. As a teacher I see my profession being one of the worst for wages and it's perceived value in society. The sad irony of 25 plus years of self-serving, greedy, narcissistic, coarse rude discourse and Mimesis has and will create a horrific societal Denouementa, ironic tragedy, catastrophe and possibly if we are very lucky a Buddha like catharsis, on a scale humanity has never seen.
How many platitudes do you use or hold true?
"Work Smart NOT Hard"
"Good things come to those who wait"
"It was / wasn't meant to be"
"Time heals all wounds"
"You reap what you sow"
“Everything happens for a reason”
"Race to the TOP!"
"No Child left Behind"
Maybe we are ready for the over simplified platitudes to stop, and the Peripeteia in Anagnorisis to start!
