WHAT IS BEST IN LIFE?

This is a question that philosphers, theologians, saints, sages, etc., have discussed and debated for thousands of years.

Of course, if you're a barbarian (or perhaps a Klingon), the answer is rather simple:

"To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women."

Well, we've coming a ways from the Hyborian Age with all of its barbaric cruelties, and this is actually A Good Thing. It's the good kind of progress.

In the west, the answer to this question that has been the foundation of western civilization is incorporated primarily in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, and it is this: the 10 commandments. That is, the best way to manage your life is to live your life according to the 10 commandments, i.e. worship the one true God, honor your parents, refrain from murder, adultery, theft, and lying. These are expanded upon somewhat in the New Testament, also summed up as "love God and love your neighbor as yourself". This gets boiled down even further to what we know as 'the Golden Rule':

Do to others what you want them to do to you. This is the meaning of the law of Moses and the teaching of the prophets.
--Mat. 7:12

Even though I cited a Christian source, there is nothing uniquely Christian about the Golden Rule. According to its wiki entry:

The Golden Rule is the principle of treating others as one wants to be treated. It is a maxim that is found in most religions and cultures. It can be considered an ethic of reciprocity in some religions, although different religions treat it differently.

The idea dates at least to the early Confucian times (551–479 BCE)...the concept appearing prominently in Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Taoism, Zoroastrianism, and "the rest of the world's major religions".

In one of his books, C.S. Lewis remarked that the striking thing about the moral codes of the various cultures of the world is not the differences, but rather the similarities. His summary observation is that they're all saying more or less the same thing.

And now, within the last two centuries, the communist/progressive movement has weighed the Golden Rule in the scales of justice and found it wanting. These days, it may even label this millennia-old moral code as "whiteness" and for now I'll have to pass over the immense historical ignorance of such an idea. But what they want is to upend the entire established order, worldwide, and replace it with something else.

So how would progressives answer the question, what is best in life? Or, how would they answer the first question of the Westminster Confession, which is: "What is the chief end of man?" Meaning, what is the purpose of our existence?

I think they would say: social action. Or, more precisely, social activism. Bringing justice to the oppressed. Smashing the oppressor. Progressive heroes are never inventors or philosophers or statesmen or high achievers (insofar as they are not members of any of the progressives' accredited victim groups), but rather crusading social reformers, or those who incorporate social reformation into whatever else they're doing.

Like this one TV series I was watching a few months ago, set in Victorian England, had a scene where a Columbo-type police detective was interviewing a teenaged prostitute about the murder he was trying to solve, and she expresses disbelief that he actually wants to know who did it rather than to figure out a way to pin it on her or some other slum-dweller. Because, she tells him, in her experience, that is what the police usually do. "Well", he replies, "I am going to change all that." And I thought, really? This rumpled flatfoot is going to single-handedly reform the entire British law enforcement system? He's going to personally bring vindication to the lowly and punishment to all privileged evildoers, and let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream? Is he really going to do all that by himself?

Well, no, of course not. But that's the ideal progressive hero. That is the highest that any progressive can aspire to. The point is, it's just not enough for this police officer to solve the murder, to bring a bit of justice to the small corner of the grubby little world he is a part of, making it a little less grubby. In my view, that is a positive good that God smiles upon, and he should be satisfied with it. But no, if you're a progressive, that's not good enough. To be a true hero of the people, he's got to have some grandiose scheme to bring about universal justice to all mankind.

As we all know, progressives are full of these kind of grandiose schemes that they think will solve the problems of human existence, but every time they've been able to attempt to implement them, the results have been universally disastrous: ruined economies, crushing oppression, starvation, and mass graves.

So my question is, are there any rules among progressives, any system of ethics, as to how they should treat one another? I'm not saying there aren't any, only that I don't know of any and I don't hear them talking about such topics with each other, so I'm guessing it's not that important to them. What I have seen, though, is that they will go after each other with the same fury they come at us with, providing there are none of us around for them to unite against.

Not that our side doesn't have bitter, internecine fighting that sometimes breaks out, but there's usually some restraint. It's not an all-out death match that left-wing fights turn into. For example, I greatly detest Liz Cheney and I really want to see her defeated, and her turncoat activities thwarted. On the other hand, I do not want her house surrounded by screaming mobs, or see her harassed and assaulted in public, or her bank accounts cancelled.

There are things in life greater than politics. Progressives know nothing of this.

If the progressives succeed in establishing themselves permanently in authority and carting us off to Happy Fun Gulags, that doesn't mean there's going to be peace. They'll still be fighting, only against one another. And then, after millennia of hibernation, Hyborian ethics will make a comeback.

Wednesday Who Dis: Comedienne Jean Arthur's career spanned the silent era to the "talkies" to television - even though her show only lasted 11 weeks. But she did make a few non-comedies, including Cecil B. De Mille's epic western, The Plainsman The Plainsman, with James Ellison, perhaps best known for playing the sidekick in the 'Hopalong Cassidy' movies in the 1930s.

47 So my question is, are there any rules among progressives, any system of ethics, as to how they should treat one another? I'm not saying there aren't any, only that I don't know of any and I don't hear them talking about such topics with each other, so I'm guessing it's not that important to them.

This question has a two-fold system:
1) Power is constructed in the order of progressive stack (often featured in this blog). Needless to say, if you are a white male who likes his body parts and wants to be with women, you are at the bottom of this stack.
2) The power of a statement comes with the power of the emotion. If someone really, really feels something, you are not allowed to question it. Ever.

This is how people like Meghan Markle are worth billions of dollars and yet are higher on the progressive stack than a white man just laid off on his job. Because she FEELs like she has to solve the world's problems of racism and sexism, and by taking on their emotional suffering, she's a better person than someone - as you mention - who wants to make life a better place for that someone in his life.

76 By the way, the guy complaining about nuclear power not solving all of the worlds ills, well, he's just using word salad to hide the fact he doesn't want to pay for nuclear power.

He thinks he should be a lotus eater while everyone else slaves away to support him in the lifestyle in which he has earned through his devotion to mouthing off about various causes he thinks should be addressed.

No, it was Dickensian. A (mostly) fun series that took characters from a number of Dickens novels and put them in the same universe. The plot was about Inspector Bucket (Bleak House) trying to solve the murder of Jacob 'Christmas Carol' Marley.

As I said, it was mostly fun and not much 'woke', but that one line kind of like a thumb in the eye.

Which leads us in a roundabout way to why the Golden Rule isn't "doing the right thing" at all; it's wholly inadequate to deal with industrial-scale evil.

The progs don't believe there even is such a thing as "being informed"; there is no information. There is only them being entitled to rule because they are Right, and what is Right is defined as what they want right now because they are Good and everyone else is not. It's not obvious on the surface but they manage to be quite a bit more brutal from an ideological standpoint than Mao's reworked Stalinism.

The problem they present isn't figuring out how to apply the Golden Rule to them; it's figuring out when it's no longer moral to do so - even to the hangers-on who may not really understand what they're doing. Nice sounding platitudes don't justify letting progs crush you and your children under their bootheel.

169 I've been reading The Divine Comedy while listening to The Modern Scholar lecture series about it. It's described as both autobiographical and and a road map for each of us to achieve happiness. And it got me thinking, who is happy in the US today? Pretend President Creepy Joe? Nanzi Pelosi? The Antifa/BLM scum who are out burning things and killing people? The lunatics who think boys are girls and girls are boys? Dante says that God is the sole source of happiness. Around us we see the effects of living without God.

Incidentally, Dante places those who were neither virtuous nor evil on the borders of Hell following a blank banner and tormented by gadflies. That's pretty much where I'd put myself

170 I think Envy is a core component of anarchy and discontent, and an integral part of the leftist mindset. It is corrosive to the soul. I've seen it in every leftist I've known, it's really strange character trait.

Jealousy I think has been defined as wishing you had what someone else has? Envy is different. It's when somebody has something you don't have something, therefore you don't want them to have it either.

If you look at the 42 sins, nearly all of them would still apply today. These concepts have been around since long before recorded history. And yet the progs are still convinced they know better.

It's interesting to me the argument about who was first with the golden rule. Deuteronomy is really really old. It seems like the Jews have a really good argument. And frankly I tend not to believe the scholars who point to, say, Hammurabi, because those same people don't believe in the historicity of Israeli slavery in Egypt, let alone agree on the dates on when it would have been.

Trying to blind police with lasers, cursing them, throwing rocks, that video of one Antifa type giving a running punt to a man's face who was only trying to help someone (Footnote, is the kicker back on the streets after a wrist slap?).

Nothing I have seen indicates that the level of violence and sheer hatred and malevolence in DC on 1/6 was anything close to that of the left's mobs.

308 Not watching the Olympics, I was thinking of my Dad's hero athlete.Dad, born in Finland, was a great fan of distance runner Paavo Nurmi and it seems half the western world was also. Heh, when I was a little kid I named a hamster who loved to run on the wheel Paavo. Nurmi was loyal to his country, served in the Finnish military during the wars, was successful in business, and coached many athletes. And now we have lesbians who disrespect the flag that sent them to the games.

311 >>> The Egyptians had 42 sins that you had to "confess" that you did not violate in life or your soul would be fed a crocodile headed god and destroyed forever.

Kind of. There were several different lists of sins that had to be confessed and they were a bit contradictory. I think it's kind of funny too that there are several repeating negative confessions on the most famous one, the papyrus of Ani. "I haven't stolen." "I haven't stolen grain." "I have not purloined offerings." "I have not stolen the property of God." "I have not carried away food." "I have not stolen cultivated land." "I have not stolen the bread of the Gods."

Seems to me that list could have been edited down a bit.

318 Slick Willie showed up in our heavily democrat kinda rust belt manufacturing town to stump for his ole ball and chain in at the final campaign legs in the runup to 2016. Lots of union members, or what's of unions anyway.

Keeping in mind Trump was getting 10s of thousands to show up for his rallies in the rain .. the newspaper had these tightly cropped closeups of the crowd, but a full view of the crowd showed maybe 30 to 50 people tops. It was unreal. And probabky half of those were the press.

We're being gaslighted like you'd never, ever believe. That's why it's all hands on deck for the alphabet agencies, the "news" media, and academe, business, etc their sole mission (apparently) has been turrned inward, to "deplatform" Americans in Every Way.

As Dennis Prager, on the Ten Commandments, points out:

"Stealing is, to a certain extent, the mother of all the ethical Commandments. Because all are a form of stealing. Murder is stealing a life. Adultery is stealing a spouse -- after all, two single people cannot commit adultery; adultery by definition involves one or two of the people to be married. Do not bear false witness if means stealing truth and therefore stealing justice. And, of course, Do not covet involves wanting to steal."

328 @233 Hey OM. About that reference to the Westminster Confession. Are you for or against ?
Because under the Contents section on Wikipedia, it says that WC states that the pope is the antichrist and it does not appear specific to Francis. Or were you already looking for a fight ...

Right. For that reason, and others, I prefer the Belgic Confession to Westminster, less cringey. But the WCF is not totally devoid of good stuff.

334 Progressivism in its ideological form (in reality it is nothing more than a horse for those who wish to be king to ride) is a doomed religion. It tries to create Heaven on Earth with Man filling the ruling role of God. Which is inherently impossible because humans are sinners and cannot possibly duplicate the justice and planning of God. This basic idea of Man thinking he can replace God goes all the way back to Nimrod in the Bible. That didn't end well either.

Posted by: azjaeger at July 23, 2021 11:28 AM (3/XaG)

335 Outstanding take. The Golden Rule is indeed the foundation of all civilization, and, as you point out, of all civilized religions (and Islam as well). Its opposite is the state of nature, a condition in which the only restraints on behavior are those imposed by biology and physics, namely, that we have to breathe, eat, shit, fuck, and stay warm and dry.

That might be bad enough if universally practiced, but the Left wants us to live by the two principles simultaneously: not simply the Golden Rule, but the Platinum Rule (treat others as they wish to be treated) for whites and the state of nature for everyone else. That is not, as they say, sustainable.

336 "Progressivism" is about power over others. Raw, bloody, power.

Period.

All the rhetoric about new societies and "fighting for the people" is just thick layers of lipstick on a huge, shaggy, slavering, red-eyed, jagged-tusked wild pig.

338 The only books you will ever need to understand today's world are The Abolition of Man and Atlas Shrugged.



There's a lot of That Hideous Strength (the final book in the space trilogy, covering in fiction much of the material in TBoM) which reminds me of Atlas Shrugged. There's a lot of commonality of vision between Lewis and Rand despite the former being a sincere Christian and the latter a raging atheist.

But yes, both of those works are significantly useful works for evaluating and understanding the current state of the world...

340 Why do progressives "elevate" every concern? If you are worried about pollution, why not pick up trash on the beach? In other words, why not just take local action?

Because. By localizing the problem, you increase the ethics. For example, if you saw someone drop some trash, you might pick it up, or you might even berate them. Would you murder them? Of course not.

But if you join a group, and that group's goal is to save the Earth, then any bad thing you do in pursuit of that goal is a-okay, right? By expanding the scope of the problem to the existential level, you give yourself moral permission to do unethical things for the greater good. Murdering people is just fine if it is to save the Earth, right?

It is one reason racism gets injected into everything - it elevates whatever the problem is, and gives people permission to do unspeakable things. Same with social justice, poverty, "violence" in speech. The do this to give themselves permission to kill, loot, destroy, murder, steal. For the greater good.

It is why they gravitate to things like climate change - which can be sued to justify just about any action.

341 The lion and lamb picture reminded me of some tv show I stayed up too late in order to watch and and still really angry about. It was a documentary about a lioness that for whatever reason adopted some small very young animal that she would normally have eaten. Something goat like. The young animal couldn't nurse from the lioness because the milk of the lion didn't have the right nutrients for this animal species, and the lioness wouldn't leave the young animal alone, and both slowly starved. The "experts" wouldn't do anything to save the animals. Because "nature." The regular people wanted to save them, but the "experts" prevented it.

Sometimes I wonder if it was God testing humans. Because we didn't help the animals when a lion truly lay down with a lamb, and we're let them starve to death, well, screw humans...
