~ Are You Educated? or Processed? ~

From my research…I am sharing…

"While recently browsing Jacques Maritain's Introduction to Philosophy, published in the early 20th century, I came across this thought on the ancient Greek sophists: "They believed in knowledge without believing in truth. A similar phenomenon has recurred since in the history of thought and on a far larger scale."

Does this not describe today's dictatorship of relativism and its legions of obedient subjects (they call themselves "individuals," "freethinkers" etc., and are often branded - like cattle - with tattoos). Do you know many who are NOT moral relativists? Are you too yet another subject of this regime?

Be honest with yourself. What's the orientation of your thoughts?...on the highest things? Or do you too profess that there's no better or worse, but merely difference? Are you first concerned with truth, or with originality? Are you convinced that consent, choice, and pleasure are the sole criteria of the good (to the extent that you believe in the good at all)? Have you embraced the idea that "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"? Are you "spiritual but not religious"? Have you said anything like this: "I have my truth, you have yours"?

Much more could be said…

What we embrace reveals us. Consider the fly: its tastes are directed to feces, vomit, and rotting corpses. And so the fly is repulsive to us. What about you? Do you embrace decay? Then please consider whether you're actually educated, despite any technical knowledge you have, the grades you received, and any degrees you may hold. Ask yourself, in the quiet of your room, very honestly, without a hint self-deception: Am I not educated at all, but merely processed?...You'll find out only when you've asked and investigated this further question: What is education?
