    2020 The Year Of Living Dangerously

    So deceptive, so sudden the world was thrust into a tailspin of regrettable decisions. The sheer scope of this great tragedy has pushed mankind almost to the brink of insanity. Governments the world over are trying desperately to combat this plague on two fronts, economically, and medically. The enormous amount of destruction in lives and livelihoods lost due to this scourge that has paralyzed nations around the globe continues.

    The Tudor Dynasty and Queen Elizabeth I |Part 4 - Final Chapter

    The Tudor Dynasty and Queen Elizabeth I |Part 4 - Final Chapter

    For almost 20 years Elizabeth was the one who held Mary for almost 19 years. If you just glance at the historical events, you will find Elizabeth too cruel. Me too, but later on when I read more, I realized why Elizabeth had to do so. Britain has always been isolated from Catholic countries in continental Europe, but within Britain, it has always been easy to lose balance because of the two opposing religious parties. Elizabeth was again considered "illegal" in the eyes of the Catholic side. Her throne and life are always threatened by both enemies inside and outside.

    On ‘Daisies’ and Why it does Matter

    On ‘Daisies’ and Why it does Matter

    The Czech New Wave was a film movement that emerged in 1963 which writer Simon Hitchman in his 2015 article suggested was due to increasing pressure for socio-political reform within Czechoslovakia. The country was in the midst of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic (CSR) period in which the country was under communist rule. Film makers needed a voice to combat this oppressive rule and thus the New Wave movement began. During this period, a renowned female director, Vera Chytilova; ‘first lady of Czech cinema,’ according to Fox in 2014, released the film Daisies in 1966. The film is a 70-minute experimental, absurdist look at two young girls who, after deciding that the world ‘has gone bad’ decide that they themselves will ‘go bad’ too. They embark on a series of anarchic, destructive behaviours as a rebellion against society. Theorist Shaviro in 2007 wrote that he regarded Daisies as a ‘violently nihilistic assault’ against the conventions of filmmaking, social normalities and even the spectator themselves.

    There was universal shock at the news that HRH The Prince of Wales had tested positive for Coronavirus, forcing the Heir Apparent into self-isolation. With the diagnosis came the stark reality that both the Queen and her Heir were unable to physically lead the country through the greatest pandemic its ever faced. And whilst Her Majesty is scheduled to record an address to the Nation – only the fourth time in her long reign – her founding sentiments of duty and leadership must now skip a generation, landing on the shoulders of her grandson and second-in-line to the Throne, Prince William.

The prince is said to have mild symptoms and doing well. Both he and his wife have self quarantined in Scotland. There has been no news regarding the 95 year old Queen Elizabeth and her 98 year old husband Prince Phillip. Prince Charles does a lot of traveling and it’s believed this is how he ended up with Covid-19. CNN’s Max Foster is just outside of London and says that there is no way to determine how the Orince obtained the virus because of his many engagements. Prince Charles met all the criterion for being tested and is following the proper protocol. He announced that the Prince was in contact with his mother Qeen Elizabeth during a meeting on March 12.

    The Missing Pages Of American History

    In memory is where many of us can escape the surrealness of now. For a nation that was founded by the guiding principles of Liberty, Justice, Education, and Morality have all withered by the decay of corruption, deceit, and greed of those who we entrusted to do the publics good. From humble beginnings of a fledging nation to the harsh realities of today the American public have been grossly misled. While some Presidents and members of Congress thought they were moving the country in the right direction only to have the public ill prepared for the consequences of their actions have had lasting effects on every American. Some of those actions taken were designed to deceive the public and entrench a ruling class elite.

    Let's All Clap for the White Man

    Let's All Clap for the White Man

    The White Savior Complex is sometimes accredited to Rudyard Kipling's The White Man's Burden, a poem espousing the moral obligations of white folks to civilize non-whites living in the darkest corners of the earth. Inspired by the Phillipine-American War, Kipling urges the White Man (sic) to exercise patience and fearlessness in meeting the needs of his captives, (in this case the Filipinos,) who are described as "Half devil and half child". It seems strange that an India-born White Man would describe his brown-bodied brethren in such a way; yet the roots of white supremacy run deep and does not require strength in numbers, and remember that his most famous work does center around a brown-bodied man-cub who was raised by wolves. And how lauded Kipling is today for having brought such humanity not only to the beloved animals of The Jungle Book, but to the uncivilized Mowgli as well.

The events that had taken place on September 11, 2001, was quoted by many as the event that had ‘changed everything.' The attacks had caused many changes to happen in many aspects around the world and changed many attitudes as to how to cope and deal with terrorism. It had caused conflicts to begin in Afghanistan and Iraq, with many nations around the world rushing to America’s aid to deal with those that had caused 9/11. Security was increased drastically to try and prevent anything on this magnitude to ever be able to happen again. The biggest change to have come from the attacks was surely the intelligence services.

    Thrasymachus

    Thrasymachus

    Thrasymachus was an Antiquity Greek sophist better remembered as a Plato's Republic hero. Thrasymachus was a Chalcedonian citizen, on the Bosphorus. His life seems to have been spent at Athens as a sophist although the precise essence of his research and thesis remains uncertain. He is credited with an improvement in the rhythmic nature of the Greek oratory, particularly the use of paeonic rhythm in prose, and a greater appeal through gesture to the emotions. Aristophanes makes Thrasymachus, in a passing joke from a forgotten play dated to 427 BCE, echoes what is more specifically dateable. From this passage Nils Rauhut from the Internet Archive of Philosophy indicates that Thrasymachus may have taught many years before this point at Athens. A passage from Clement of Alexandria offers some extra meaning when comparing Thrasymachus with the Archelaus of Macedonia. Hence Rauhut notes specifically that in the last three decades of the 5th century, Thrasymachus was the most influential one. Dillon and Gergel propose the alternative hypothesis that the speech was written by Herodes Atticus, 2nd-century CE, to whom we have extracts similar in nature to Clement's text which reads as authentically 5th-century, showing a detailed knowledge of Thessalian politics. In Aristotle's Politics there is a man of the same name who overthrew the monarchy at Cyme but little is known about this case, nor can it be said with any degree of certainty that they are the same entity. In his Nuanced Refutations Aristotle again makes reference to a Thrasymachus, where he credits him with a crucial role in the growth of rhetorical philosophy. In addition, this is what happened with regard to rhetorical discourses and almost all other arts: for those who invented their roots, they only advanced them in a limited way, while today's celebrities are descendants of a long sequence of people who created them little by little and thereby formed them into their present form, Tisias coming after the first founders, Dillon and Gergel. More specifically written in the Rhetoric, Aristotle introduces a witty simile to Thrasymachus. Dillon and Gergel suggest this may justify Thrasymachus's choice of Plato as the "combative and bombastic adherent to his Republic's 'truth is true' doctrine." Against this theory, though, scholar Angie Hobbs suggests that this Thrasymachus 'purpose may be merely to highlight current hypocrisy, rather than applaud its abuse. Plato quotes Thrasymachus as a good rhetorician within his Phaedrus but assigns nothing important to him. The Byzantine Suda gives a brief description of the role of Thrasymachus as a rhetorical theorist. A Chalcedonian sophist, of the Chalcedon Bithynian. He was the first to discover time and colon, and he invented the new sort of rhetoric. He was the philosopher Plato's pupil, and the rhetoric of the Isocrates. The second sentence, Dillon and Gergel note, is an irrational argument, both in reference to Plato and Isocrates. We suggest a lacuna in the text in which Thrasymachus is considered another's pupil, and a rival to Plato and Isocrates. In his On Isaeus, Dionysius of Halicarnassus praises Thrasymachus for his numerous rhetorical skills, calling Thrasymachus sweet, clever and creative and capable of expressing as he pleases, either with terseness or an eruption of vocabulary. Nevertheless, Dionysus regarded Thrasymachus as a second-rate orator despite the incisive and beautiful Lysias, leaving no forensic speeches to posterity, merely manuals and display-talks. The present value of Thrasymachus derives in large part from his being a character in the Republic. In Leo Strauss's opinion, Thrasymachus and his idea of justice reflect the city and its laws, and are therefore in a way contradictory to Socrates and philosophy in general. As an intellectual, however, Thrasymachus possibly aligned enough with the philosopher to behave in favor of philosophy in the area.

    Simplicius of Cilicia

    Simplicius of Cilicia

    Simplicius of Cilicia was one of the last Neoplatonists to be a student of Ammonius Hermiae and Damascus. He was among the pagan scholars that Justinian persecuted in the early 6th century, and was forced to seek asylum at the Persian court for a while before being welcomed back into the empire. He'd written thoroughly on Aristotle's plays. While not all his works are original compositions but commentaries on Aristotle and other authors, his scholarly and prodigious expertise renders him the last great philosopher of pagan antiquity. His dissertation has maintained significant knowledge from earlier scholars, who otherwise may have been overlooked. Simplicius was an Ammonius Hermiae and Damascus pupil, and thus one of the last representatives of the Neoplatonist school. Secondary offices are in Athens. This has been the subject of the last attempts to preserve the Hellenistic order against Islamic invasions. Imperial edicts issued against paganism in the 5th century provided civilian protection against personal heathen ill-treatment. In the year 528 Emperor Justinian had ordered the expulsion of pagans from government offices. Some of their assets confiscated, others had been put to death. The declaration stated that were they to be removed from the Kingdom if they did not convert to Christianity within three months. Furthermore, Athens discouraged the exercise of ethics and jurisprudence any more. Possibly even the wealth of the Platonist Academy, priced at the time of Proclus at more than 1000 pieces of gold, was confiscated; at least Justinian deprived the physicians and teachers of the liberal arts of the provision-money provided to them by the former emperors and took money raised by the people for shows and other civic purposes. Seven philosophers, including Simplicius, Eulamius, Priscian and others, with Damascus at their side, the last president of the Platonist school in Athens, agreed to seek shelter in the court of the famous Persian king Chosroes, who ascended the throne in 531. And their expectations collapsed. Chosroes, concluded in a peace treaty with Justinian c 533 The philosophers were to be able to return without anxiety and to continue the practices which they left behind. We will not know much about the real experiences with the seven thinkers. We may not know where Simplicius lived and where he studied. This is proven not only by the address given to his hearers in Aristotle's commentary on the Physica Auscultatio, as well as the title of his commentary on the Divisions. He had been educated partly as a Damascus student in Alexandria under Ammonius, partly in Athens; and it was presumably in one of these two towns that he eventually took up residence; for, with the exception of those towns and Constantinople, it would have been difficult to find a town with the collections of books that he wanted, and he could not have gone to Constantinople. There are no definite allusions about his personal history in Simplicius's writings, particularly his migration to Persia. Only at the end of his description of the Epictetus 'treatise does Simplicius, with appreciation, discuss the consolation he had sought in these ethical contemplations under tyrannical tyranny; which may indicate that it was written during or shortly after the persecutions described above. The following works are his remarks on Aristotle's de Caelo, Physica Auscultatio, and Divisions as well as a commentary on the Epictetus Enchiridion. There is also a commentary on Aristotle's de Anima under his signature, but it is simplistic in stylistic terms and lacks the breadth of historical details normally used by Simplicius. Priscian of Lydia suggested it was written even though some scholars found it genuine. Before that, the commentary on de Caelo was written on the Physica Auscultatio, but presumably not in Alexandria, since he cites an astronomical discovery made by Ammonius during his stay in that city. After Damascus died, and even after his return from Persia, Simplicius wrote his commentary on the Physica Auscultatio

    Staffordshire Hoard

    Fans of Indiana Jones and National Treasure may dream of one day finding immense wealth buried under their feet. However, in today’s world, not only is it unlikely to find such a treasure, it is also unlikely that the finder will get to keep it. Nations of the world have property laws for archaeological finds, and one such a nation is the United Kingdom. While the finders of wealth may get compensated for their finds in the UK, the treasure itself is often sold off to museums. A good example of the treasure laws that the United Kingdom uses is that of the Staffordshire Hoard. The Staffordshire Hoard is a unique find from a time that scientists do not know much about; even though it is important to study such a find, it should also be a source of pride for the local people and local museums.

    Four Uncomfortable Truths About “The Left”

    Four Uncomfortable Truths About “The Left”

    Before I get into this, I want to play my “minority card” granting me the power of immunity to personal attacks about my perceived privilege. I hope by the time you finished reading this post the following declaration will be redundant. I am a masculine looking gay woman, I grew up poor, and I am half native. I also live with a mental illness, but I mean who doesn’t these days? My point is while my stats indicate I am not a typical person of “privilege,” my education and my bank account would state otherwise. I graduated at the University of Calgary with a bachelor of social work. I basically have a degree in oppression. We were always encouraged to advocate for people in-need. While I do agree with many of the principals and philosophies of social work I've seen being a "social justice warrior" become bastardized, and hijacked by today's youth in the name of leftist politics. Here are four uncomfortable truths about "the left" that more conservative thinkers and politically centered folk find cringey and foolish.

    Do We Need General Philosophy to Argue for Anarchism?

    Do We Need General Philosophy to Argue for Anarchism?

    Generally arguments for anarchy rely on philosophy of rights and ethics. Proudhon's discussion on property is a good example. Similarly Ayn Rand argued for limited government, due to the consequence of large government violating our fundamental rights. The problem with using such general philosophical arguments is that it can be very difficult to build a common foundation. As far as I see it, government violates the basic rights of bodily autonomy and selective inaction, but justifying that vision to others requires that they understand rights in the same way that I do.
