In modern society, most people unconsciously choose to disassociate an individual from their principles/beliefs from what they advocate/choose. Often the most vile/selfish motives are ascribed to those whose personal choices reflect the objective morality (e.g., George W. Bush) which they avow, and its attendant worldview (Christianity), and that ascription is rendered by those that simultaneously evangelize for depravity - e.g., abortion, homosexuality, pedophilia etc., and by those whose morality is conditioned by their interest (e.g., one could say, name your favorite Democrat, or leftist). These evangelists, let’s call them “evangelists of the antichrist,” subscribe to the irrational/subjective world view dominant in the University (a derivative of Kant’s epistemology); one that so subscribes, differs in degree only with their advocacies from histories great tyrants and murders, but not in kind, and that is because the principles an individual, group or culture embrace do in fact circumscribe – absent any impetus to the contrary, their choice. This is what leads Dostoyevsky’s character, Ivan Karamazov utters: “If there is no God, everything is lawful.”

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
