Philosophical Thought for the Day – 3 January 2019

Thinking of Love
Love and Knowledge = Philosophy

Welcome to PTFTD, a (semi-)regular feature on my blog. Each (ideally daily) post I will raise a topic for consideration that may hopefully give you pause for some serious, or not-so-serious contemplation throughout your day/night/week/life.

It’s as much for my personal benefit as anyone else’s who may find it of interest, as we all try to figure out just what life is all about and what on Earth we are all doing here or to each other?

Today’s Thought:

Violence is the resort of a weak and/or desperate person.

It is also simple to do, requiring little to no thought beforehand, and, unfortunately, can be quite effective at getting someone what they want to get and ensuring those it is used upon do not.

It is a throwback from our evolutionary past and should have NO place in our 21’st century societies.

We have a brain that should be trained how to achieve whatever we desire without the need to succumb to our baser emotions and the Law of the Jungle.

Physical might does NOT equal ‘Right’.

It is long past the time we were all better than this.


I need to think on this for a while (longer) 🙂

violence Think




    • Very likely! 🙂

      There is no doubt that violence still exists in us and in our society and we might never fully remove it from the planet we all have to share – but do we really have to reinforce it’s presence through 24/7 news bulletins highlighting it all and movies, songs, plays video games, etc constantly immersing us in it – de-sensitising and normalising it (“it must be ok – EVERYbody’s doing it!”) 😦

      Let’s normalise loving one another more – even our enemies and ‘the Mexicans; some of whom , i assume, are good people’. 🙂
      Matt 5 has a few things to say on that score also. maybe someone needs to read it to Mr Trump since it’s his ‘favourite book’ (after Art of the Deal!) 🙂
