Dear G'M

I'll be back again to comment further. Kant's conviction that Categprcal Imperative is not, according to my way of thinking, anything to do with God's Will. God gives us free will to exercise and does not intervene. His inervention would make us dependent on Him and we will stop trying to figure as to how to counter the designs of the evil predators. The moral imlication of this will also be against our evolving. Just see a thousand years back and how many devices are now available to us for our protection, and so many more are now in the offing, as from the threatening skies that are non-living collection of debris, collectively 100000 tons in weight and at that great speed would still not fully burn out and those that have capacity to decimate  the world thirty times over, hundreds of times more powerful that nuclear bombs. I think we must give Kant credit for his beliefs which to him, were honest and at the most his own only and in no way universal. There are some other shortcomings too in his beliefs but that he would never believe that he is wrong must have been too overwhelming to his psyche  and that is why he went overboard, he went mad. He misconstrued the adage 'Love thy neighbour as thyself' as 'love thy wicked neighbour as thyself'. Enjoyed your writeCheers

Thanks for coming back, to see what was added.  My mind works slowly, so posting something for other people to read, is often an incentive to do some more thinking and work on the post, to improve it, or so I hope......

Re: Re: Anib to dear bro GM

I agree completely.  But I would add that the "giant" philosophers have a "giant" ego, which prods them into extremes of argument,  that then collapse upon their heads, when they are truly tested by critics, and by the trials of life. Their arguments are false, and the philosophers cannot handle the disproving of their precious arguments, so they go mad, go off the rails, go into "special care",  at some point in their unfortunate life.  You and I are still wrting valid philosophy, at the point were the "giants" were commited to insane asylums.  Cheers

Re: Anib to dear bro GM

I was particularly attentive and read your fine contribution with great interest. Some aspects you bring were not known to me earlier about Kant. You have said in my first part of the article that your's was a sterner account than mine. But after having finished and posted today the second part, I felt that mine was no less critical than yours. The whole bunch of philosophers and thinkers have a streak of madness underlying in their minds the whole lifeitime which they try to thrust  as true in other peoples' minds. Mine was this very idea titled 'Can we trust those that go mad?' This thought I then compared with sages who I feel, stand limitlessly higher, never senseless. Kudos to you friend that despite being in a different space, our thoughts are so alike that we often stand at the same page. Cheers!

I greatly anticipate your comments, after a good reading.  Actually, it is good you have not read it yet, because I just added some more material, even in the first half.  Sometimes I have to re-read my own stuff, to see that I have not followed a point far enough for the reader.  Hopefully, it is now clearer in its delivery, and a better read.   Cheers

Hi GM

I'm dying to read this, but not casually. No sooner do I find time, then I will.

The new stuff starts after "In one fell stroke, Kant...... "

Thanks, RP, FSI, and Corbin. You might want to read the last half again, because I added a couple of paragraphs in there, to complete my argument, as I should have done years ago!!  Cheers
