FYI, I finally finished my book, The last chapter had been dogging me for a while (like two years, I think). I was never happy with it. Even this version is more wordy than I would like, but it is more of a step-by-step description of how we can have a new economy, complete with how to make the tran...

Funny, when you said that, I imagined government.

Insurance is a ponzi scheme, which just goes along with all the other oddities of our advanced brain.

WOW! Mercy is a wonderful thing, but I am a bit confused by your post. On the one hand, you see the rapist as a person who is lost and needs to be forgiven. You blame the culture for creating rapists and 'lost men.' Sex as violence and a way of stealthily striking the weak fits within a large contex...

Steve this is good no? What is the point of hanging on? 99% of people's problems are because they are hanging on to their old myths. Firstly and foremostly to their parents and childhood persona, then refusing to make the change from student to householder etc etc. Rarely is it the case that someon...

The joy of giving is preceded by the joy of having. Of course, the challenge of moral insight is that it can easily be faulty, which is why the issue of hero construction (ourselves) and hero destruction (others) is a bit complex. I do not think of duality as a bad word. It is a fact of the conditio...

The seen and the unseen are inherently dualistic. In trying to create a bridge between different societies and their different myths, he also separates them, too. That is the nature of bridges; there are two sides to the river that runs between them. Again, Orwell and Hoffer both discuss myths in a ...

Yes, I get all that. God doesn't fix the problem, he fixes the people who make the problem, and that results in changes to the status quo. Joe Campbell follows that process and puts it into the context of a myth (new wisdom) that becomes the basis of the society. That is not what I am asking. Does J...

What does Joe say about hero destruction?

The hero's journey is about 'following your bliss' which is a process of self-discovery, etc. We are all on this journey, with various degrees of success and self-awareness. My question is more a question about a question (if that makes sense). It was inspired by the recent Russell Brand tirade agai...

The mercy you give is the same mercy you earn. So the ladder is for both the high and the low to build, but for ourselves, it is our ladder that we build.

Only the merciless are in need of mercy.

For the top to come down from their perch, we need to build them a ladder.
