If we can agree to disagree, that's something.

I do what I believe is right.

I did what I believed was right.

When individual belief in what is right – and by extension, what is wrong - are treated as sovereign, what is right becomes divorced from the public process of consideration and deliberation. Concomitantly, when it is placed beyond the ken of public discourse: placed in the hands' of the gods, or, alternatively, an impersonal system of metaphysical absolutes, it remains hidden except from those self-appointed, earth-bound guides, to the immutable. There are also those that submit to the wisdom of the crowds: right is the sum of cumulative might.

I don't subscribe to the Euthyphro dilemma.


Some talk of the ancient struggle between the forces of good and evil. If a struggle it is, then what is of the utmost importance is the struggle, for it can never be resolved; these are the virtues of doubt, indecision and reflection.

Revolution is evolution.

What goes around comes around.
