Dear friends of truth, beauty, and goodness,
Welcome to this site, and congratulations on your interest in the philosophy of living! I hope you interact as you have time. We all learn more when we and others get active.
My rule of living is to treat you as I want to be treated. I ask you to do the same. Here is how I interpret that golden rule as regards comments on this site.
This weblog is created to promote a movement of persons interested in developing a philosophy of living. For this movement to happen, free discussion is essential; and freedom flourishes within a framework of rules. Actually, what I have is commitments for myself, guidelines, which I ask you to respect, too.
I plan to keep my blogs at an introductory level. I do not go into advanced theology here, which can introduce needless division into the group. Please cooperate with me in this.
I am also committed to keeping the basic spiritual core of truth from being upstaged, so I avoid entangling discussion of social, economic, or political topics. Please join me in this.
I need and welcome critical comments. And I have a responsibility to the group to limit debate once the issues have become clear or when aggressiveness takes over. This conversation has a mission to focus on a philosophy of living in truth, beauty, and goodness. Thank you for understanding.
Thank you for joining the conversation! Responsible participation is essential if we are to get good at what we are doing.
