Nihilism, Futurist Traditionalism and Conservationism

Drugs, alcohol, sex, religion

23 02 12 - 10:03

Drugs, alcohol, sex, religion -- these are all things that appeal to us. I will add others: money, power, popularity.

These can be "pleasure scapegoats." Much as a scapegoat is a single goat into which a village (symbolically) loads its demons and fears, a pleasure scapegoat is a single pleasure into which you load all of the demands of an actual life. In other words, instead of having a fun life, you depend on the substance or sensation to do it for you.

If you cannot accept life as a whole, you're still caught in the good-versus-evil division that applies to methods, not goals, and thus is completely confused as to its cause-effect relationship. It leads to a path to nowhere interesting or fun.

This concise public service announcement brought to you by reality.

Which is it?
I'm confused. I thought you were a consequentialist. On that view, the good/evil distinction applies to goals, and methods don't matter.

On the deontic view, the good/evil distinction applies to methods, and I'm not sure whether it applies to goals too. Which is it? - 23-02-’12 11:52
