RE: End of the world?
One should be careful not to confuse politics, philosophy and science. There are clear distinctions, they do not really border and problems can arise between communicating people when it is projected they do.
We don't want to have to get paranoid about appreciating science when the conversation moves to philosophy. We had that age centuries ago, but as they say, when lessons aren't learned...
As a logical mind, my only interests run to empirical evidence. I can only speak for myself, and those similarly represented.
Thus I have no overbearing cynicism, but am aware of what people do. Often disappointed, sometimes pleased. I don't think there's a philosophy in that.
We all have to come to grips with an economic sociology, it's brutality and possibilities. It takes active interest to keep it attempting benevolance.
I think, mostly, keep the fundamentalists out of government. Every increasingly democratic nation requires situational and institutional thinking at its top end. Every consideration above all.
