How to be ‘Independent’

 

It is nearly impossible to find two events that are perfectly uncorrelated in Nature. But would you like the privilege of being uniquely ‘Independent’?

Give yourself a grant of immovable ‘Being’. You will show a correlation with all things as Zero.

None of this is to be addled with such overwrought religious begats as Free-Will, Fate, Karma and so-on, deeply modeled ideas, products of a restless religious imagination, mounted on the uninvestigated presumption of a Separated ‘Self’.

The entire legal and political process of a culture is set by its beginning assumptions on the nature of the ‘Individual’.

What does Crime and Justified Punishment mean if ‘Free Will’ is not assumed?  What is casting an Election Vote mean if it does not speak your choice?

These are not just abstractions for dysfunctional philosophers. They underlie the very ground of what makes a Just Society, a proper Political Order. More on these as we merrily move along.
