Wait--we aren't switching courts, are we? (Oh, never mind. Back to Burke and Scruton.)
cornelis: Wait--we aren't switching courts, are we?
I didn't mean to switch courts. If I did, I apologize. The article said:
IMHO, Marxism derives power from the thought-mechanism of the animal soul, the nephesh in Hebrew. Conversely, conservatism derives power from Truth revealed to the spirit, the neshamah in Hebrew.
Nephesh responds to gratification and yields moral relativity. Neshamah submits to higher purpose and yields moral absolutes.
From there I went into my rant about our spectator society. It seems to me that the "players" (you thinkers) will need to communicate Truth to the general public in sound bites, spin and slogans.
Just my two cents, I'll leave the intellectual "heavy-lifting" up to y'all.
