Wolves are actually very nice creatures, so I think you are doing them a great disservice when you associate them with what you arrogantly and ignorantly think of Jerry and me. The subtext of how you frame us reveals much about you, but still leaves ambiguous what your actual foundational motivations for 'believing' so are. But your rather laconic one-liner insult reveals that you have supreme confidence in your framework and/or that you perceive great profit in maintaining your worldview to the view of all the poor sheep. So the big question remaining for you is whether you are a sheep or a sheepdog. I rather doubt that you are either a shepherd or a 'wolve' as you would have it.Joe, what are you doing associating with neo-Marxist-social constructivist wolves?
And by extension, social constructivism is the application of that concept to sociology. Seems straightforward enough to me.Constructivist epistemology is a branch in philosophy of science maintaining that natural science consists of mental constructs that are constructed with the aim of explaining sensory experience (or measurements) of the natural world. According to it, scientific knowledge is constructed by the scientific community, seeking to measure and construct models of the natural world.
??"We began this study in response to several pivotal events which have occurred in the authors’ lifetimes: the three major political assassinations of the 1960’s (JFK, RFK, MLK), the Oklahoma City Federal Building bombing, and events of 9/11/2001. In each case, our view is that these events are actually best explained in terms of elite criminality and sociopathic behavior, in contrast to the false socially constructed reality promulgated by media and government sources, in which the elite are depicted as victims and problem solvers. However, it is only within our comprehensive framework, that these events can be truly explained and understood.
Has NEVER existed! NEVER ! Not in America or anywhere else!Unrestrained capitalism[...]
I nominate Atlas Shrugged, Capitalism The Unknown Ideal, The Virtue of Selfishness, or Philosophy: Who needs It? .......But I can definitely see the potential here. If we get "Catcher in the Rye" banned from the high school curriculum, what will fill the vacuum? What better than Rulers of Evil to fill its place? Need to start campaigning now, otherwise we'll get "Fifty Shades", or maybe "Barbarian Days".
By all means please do, but consider creating a new thread. Or if you're talking about Shmita-related prophecies, we already have a thread going for that:If we can agree to set our ethical and political philosophical disagreements aside for a moment, I have something to bring to those who recognize the Flavian thesis, and how the same use of "prophecy" is being mined today, attention. (it involves a "prophecy" of assassination)
Shall we proceed? (according to the "prophets" we only have days to do so)
