#virtue

In this video, I continue my analysis of Book I of Plato's Republic by turning to Socrates' famous function argument. Thrasymachus has argued that justice is merely an instrumental rather than intrinsic good, and Socrates sets forth a brief but powerful response in the closing sections of book I of the Republic. His response turns on the classical conception of excellence (arete) and its relation to natural kinds and the functions that they ground. To the classical mind, the essence of a thing determines its standards of excellence. An excellent eye will see well, an excellent ear will hear well, and an excellent horse will run well. Essences determine the end or telos to which a particular instance of a kind must strive. We also discuss Aristotle's reflections on the subject.

Philosopher Stefan Molyneux answers the most essential online question: ARE YOU A TROLL?!?

Listener letter:

Dear Stefan,

I was the one who raised the question of viewing stolen pictures and smashing laptops on Telegram. I just saw the replay of your Dlive stream where you addressed it. You called me a troll. What does that mean? Is someone who raises an ethical question in an unfriendly environment a troll? Were you a troll when you went to Parliament and the San Fran government and asked them about how they were going to pay for their government programs? You have said you used to debate your friends as a child. When they would win, would you simply accuse them of being trolls?

I have read UPB, and I accept the theory. You said I was trying to refute UPB, but maybe you were just mixing me up with people from past forums. Is the purpose of your forum to have challenging philosophical discussions or to circle-jerk about theories which everyone in the group already accepts? I'd be willing to go on your show to discuss this topic or others.

The reason I asked my question on Telegram in the first place was because I wanted to try being like you. I had asked my friend to ask me a philosophical question, and I would make a video answering it. She asked me if it was okay to enjoy content made by a problematic artist. I thought to myself: "What's the most problematic kind of content? I know -- Child porn!" I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything before I made the video, so I decided to probe your Telegram.

Anyways, I just wanted to clarify things. I was upset at being called "an obvious troll" by you since I admire you. I guess I could've prefaced my Telegram question with my reasons for asking it, but I just wanted to get right into it. I'm still listening to your Dlive show, and you just addressed a 35 year old named Glenn who "smokes weed and isn't doing anything with his life." I'm in a not-too-different boat from Glenn, so maybe we could discuss this topic if you decide to have me on your show.

if you value the right to free speech and self expression, you should always make copies of

it is free. quite simple to use, and you are able to download single videos, a playlist, or a whole channel.

Clean Cut; Episode 26
Arguments for Atheism; Part 2
How could God be perfectly virtuous? Don't you need to endure suffering and trials to be virtuous? Isn't virtue about resisting evil? Can you even be virtuous if there's no danger of failing to be good?
All well-reasoned comments welcome.

Note; Welcome to season 3 of Clean Cut, where we'll be studying the various arguments for atheism, and testing to see whether any are strong enough to challenge the proofs for the existence of God. I've picked the strongest arguments I could find on behalf of atheism, and will be studying them until around episode 36. Some arguments, regrettably, weren't strong enough to make the list, but I'll address some of those when the season is finished.

I hope you'll enjoy this brief series on the best efforts of atheism in the modern world.

Here I look at a simple definition of VIRTUE in the Quran; specifically the verse at 2:177.

People get wrapped up in theories and minutia. What is important is faith and good words. This one verse has enough to keep any of us focused and busy with what matters and to attain good in this life and in the life to come.

This life is a test. Hardships draw the ungodly further way from God; and they purify those who believe. Just because you are serving God, doesn't mean that now everything should just be hunky dory. At least, that's not my experience.

We should love God and immerse ourselves in his words. But it is better to hold small portions of his word close to our hearts and apply them every day than it is to memorise huge portions or to be able expound on complicated theories.

At the end of the day, we are going to be judged on our faith and our deeds.

It is not virtue that you turn your faces towards the east and the west.
But virtue is:
Whoso believes in God
And the Last Day
And the angels
And the law
And the prophets
And gives wealth in spite of love of it to relatives
And the fatherless
And the needy
And the wayfarer
And those who ask
And to manumit slaves
And upholds the duty
And gives the purity
And those who keep their pledge when they pledge
And the patient in affliction and adversity and battle.
These are they who are sincere
And these are those of prudent fear. 2:177

THE QUR'AN: A COMPLETE REVELATION

Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allāh, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives zakāh; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous.

SAHEEH INTERNATIONAL

It is not righteousness that ye turn your faces to the East and the West; but righteous is he who believeth in Allah and the Last Day and the angels and the Scripture and the prophets; and giveth wealth, for love of Him, to kinsfolk and to orphans and the needy and the wayfarer and to those who ask, and to set slaves free; and observeth proper worship and payeth the poor-due. And those who keep their treaty when they make one, and the patient in tribulation and adversity and time of stress. Such are they who are sincere. Such are the Allah-fearing.

M. M. PICKTHALL

Righteousness is not turning your faces towards the east or the west. Righteous are those who believe in GOD, the Last Day, the angels, the scripture, and the prophets; and they give the money, cheerfully, to the relatives, the orphans, the needy, the traveling alien, the beggars, and to free the slaves; and they observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and give the obligatory charity (Zakat); and they keep their word whenever they make a promise; and they steadfastly persevere in the face of persecution, hardship, and war. These are the truthful; these are the righteous.

RASHAD KHALIFA

True piety does not consist in turning your faces towards the east or the west1 - but truly pious is he who believes in God, and the Last Day; and the angels, and revelation, and the prophets; and spends his substance - however much he himself may cherish it - upon his near of kin, and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer,3 and the beggars, and for the freeing of human beings from bondage;4 and is constant in prayer, and renders the purifying dues; and [truly pious are] they who keep their promises whenever they promise, and are patient in misfortune and hardship and in time of peril: it is they that have proved themselves true, and it is they, they who are conscious of God

Hate Can Be a Virtue

Progressives talk a lot about the evil of hate. We are told that if we object to Sharia law and jihad, then we are intolerant haters. But what about hating harms people?

I hate wife-beating, yet the Sharia, Koran and Sunna support it.

I am intolerant of child abuse, including child marriage, but the Sunna and Sharia support it.

I hate the jihadist killings of Christians, Jews, Buddhists and apostates.

I am intolerant of religious leaders, such as the Pope and Dai Lama, who will not condemn the jihadic killing of their groups.

I hate dualistic ethics, which lack integrity.

I am intolerant of face coverings, since it cuts off open communication.

As a society, we have lost the ability to become morally outraged and are incapable of anger about the Islamic harm of innocents. I hate that.

1. Multinational Corporation insult their customers including me
2. White man prevented from talking to white woman by cock blocking black hero ( its not cool !!!!! )
3. small kids horsing around gets melodramtic intervention from virtue signalling adult concerned about somebody getting a scratch
4. cliche men , cliche barbecue
5. ' boys will be boys' just as likely to be said by women as men . sexual distinction planned obsolescence
6. gig to produce this ad given to militant Melbourne feminist in globalist HQ London ( see her other work such as ' Viva La Vulva ' good grief
7. inevitable reaction from Gilette customers met with vote rigging. comment removal and derision by the 10% of mostly wimmin who think that being irritated by this crap is somehow part of the problem
8. wish i could be interviewed on TV about this but they always choose certain people to partially put the other side ( that Canadian psychologist comes to mind)
9. not denying that people ( including men in general ) need to improve but why target one particular demographic
10. would Procter and Gamble do a similar advert about Jews , blacks or Muslims , gays or Women? if not does this mean that the only people who need improvement are white men ?
11. Maybe Gilette should target females instead as it seems that many of them endorse this garbage
12. Maybe P and G should get out of consumer care and focus on social engineering instead ?
13. The backlash MUST have been anticipated so we must assume that this advert is part of a greater agenda
14. there is plenty of room for debate about men and women but definitely NOT by a personal care products division
15. please look up as many P and G products as possible and try and boycott as many of them as possible and make sure alternative products do not have similar policies
16. I believe that the so called advert had it been directed at any other demographic would be considered as ((( hate speech))) by the Zionist censorship team at Google
17. I have reason to believe that the policies of bitchute are duplicating Google in having a hidden Zionist agenda
18. Bitchute and Disqus both allow stalking, doxxing, harassment, impersonation and many other obscenities
19. Israeli affiliated trolls are heavily working bitchute ( seconded from their YouTube work)
20 the feminist movement and the attemprt to weaken and desexualise men is part of a long term Zionist objective
21. Gloria Steinem one of the most influential figures in the ' womens movement' has admitted that the CIA created the wimmins lib movement
22. weak female in boardroom cannot stand up for herself , doubt if any actual guy would be so patronising in front of others ( however the advert is just as patronising as the unrealistic jerk portrayed in the dodgy ad )
23, P and G engaged in price fixing , dual pricing for females , child labour and animal testing
24. P and G logo used to have a distinctive 666
25, time that organisations stopped interfering in politics and social engineering ( ie Facebook, Google, Amazon, Paypal )

so are you going to take this globalist shit lying down or do you plan on doing something about it ? Time is running out

if wearing a Poppy actually contributed something to creating peace and learning lessons from all the previous failed military campaigns then I would support it, Unfortunately the reality is that lessons have not been learnt and this Poppy stuff is to convince a new generation that its great to sacrifice your life for some obscure and totally theoretical notions of freedom. If these chumps truly did sacrifice their lives for my freedoms then I must inform them that they totally failed
