Nothing But Love

A good citizen is not the same as a good human being! Where the ”good” citizen is relative to the regime, the good human being is good everywhere. The good human being is good simply because it is good. Let the indoctrination processes melt away. Laws and beliefs have their own agenda and it has nothing to do with what is best for the collective we.

The ancient greeks had a word for the quest for the best regime. They called it eros, which means LOVE. The search for the best regime must necessarily be accompanied, sustained and elevated by LOVE.

  1. Absolutely fascinating philosophical discussion. From “you’re always trying to trick people, Socrates” to “the inquiry we are undertaking is not a simple matter” to “if you see justice, give me a shout” to “good surpasses knowledge and truth” to the final description of a near death experience and the penalties and rewards for rejecting or choosing justice, one wonders how “The Republic” by Plato hasn’t become made into one of the greatest movies of all time.
