Criticism

There's a new US debate whether Republicans are accountable or responsible for the Great Replacement "theory" (see my recent blog). Democrats and/or liberals were eager to blame the Republican party. The conservatives and/or Republicans were eager to deny that criticism. This pattern seems universal. Why do liberals typically blame others (and each other)? Why do...

The meaning of Life = living a meaningful life (2)

Early 2016, I wrote my blog: The meaning of Life = living a meaningful life. Also see framework posts. The Scientific American article below claims that "appreciating beauty in the everyday may be just as powerful as a sense of overarching purpose". Its title claims that it's "a new dimension to a meaningful life". The second sentence in their final paragraph is...

Conceptual framework (4) – drivers of human behaviour

A quote by the ancient Greek philosopher Plato (428 BC-348 BC) has long been on my list of topics: "Human behaviour flows from three main sources: desire, emotion, and knowledge." (book) These 3 sources of human behaviour appear to be similar to the 3 stages in my concept of Needs, Wants & Beliefs (my blogs). My diagram to the right, also connects these 3...

The autumn of my years

Next year will be a year of change, lots of change. 2018 will bring me a greenfield situation in which nearly every option becomes a variable. Sometimes this prospect is overwhelming and makes me melancholic for a life with fixed options. It took me some time in realizing that these variable options are mostly sequential rather than happening parallel. At...
