Logical Positivists

It’s basically an immature commitment to reason to say, “This is where we excel, this is where we are strong, well, therefore the whole world should be this way and everything should be rational.”

I’ll finish this line of thought in the same place they took it “…and if its not rational, it’s therefore meaningless.”

As if this holds some force. As if reason has some immutable power or sway over everyone, as if even it should.

What a whining statement this is, what an ideal it would be for you, the logical positivists, if everything was as you hoped, and everyone had to listen to you, oh wouldn’t the world be a better place.

And you can always justify it to yourselves and say, “Oh well it isn’t, and that’s why we aren’t in charge,” except this refutes the point.

And you see the same cry in Plato, that the world would be best ruled by a philosopher king, and its not so different, the idea. The refrain that because philosophers are oh so wise, they should be selected or chosen by reason to rule, and the rest of the world should simply comply.

Well, if they had the wisdom to rule, they ought have the wisdom to take up power, and the courage to act upon it.

Otherwise, they can continue to reside in their institutions, kept safe by the powers that be, from threats they don’t care to comprehend, and bemoan the loss of the rational dystopia they would bring upon us.
