Not very font of Ethics

 The moral thing is a pain in the ass and misused in many ways.So how to preach without preaching? Stop doing it, would be my suggestionWe could read Seneca’s Letters on EthicsAnd notice how long we are trapped in the real of this framework. It is an old Greek thing… this moral thing and thinking it over…On the other hand Chamfort is clear:“In ethics, as in physics, everything is a mixture, nothing is simple nothing is pure”So it is nice to play with… at a certain level.

You and me are raised with certain believes and patterns, we might call them values.Simple mum […]
