A brief comment on the Filipino Free-FARTERS
In an online debate, a Filipino Freethinker (Free-Farter) who perhaps sought to display his intellectual prowess initiated an online conversation by somehow defending the Filipino Free-Farters’ collective and challenging my ideology and/or whatever I know about philosophy. I was forced to comment on this neo-mystic, neo-Nazi collective whose members recently launched an all-out attack on my site, trolling some of my blogs, calling me names, and employing their sickest, most irrational method of intimidation. My previous encounters with the Free-Farters proved that they reject philosophy and consider it unrelated to science. In fact, their resident plagiarist Karlo Espiritu claimed that philosophy is not science or unscientific, which simply shows his utter ignorance or even stupidity. Check my previous blogs on the Free-Farters to confirm what I’m talking about.
Also, I consider the skeptics and liberals the scourge of mass ignorance, stupidity, and irrational ideas on earth. Just look at how the skeptics pitifully defend global warming, government-induced population control, government intervention, anti-free market liberal ideas, etc.
Here’s my brief comment on this neo-mystic collective of skeptics and irrational liberals who have been trying their very best to distort and misrepresent reason, science, and freedom so to show a deceptive veneer of legitimacy:
We might be wrong in our decisions and actions, but what is important is that we have to be certain of our convictions and principles and that we must be willing to admit and correct our mistakes. I believe that there should be no compromise on moral principles. But you should understand that we all embrace a certain form of philosophical system. I was engaged in an online debate with some of the FF members before who utterly reject ideas and philosophy for the so pathetic reason that they’re not science, or that they’re unscientific. They believe that science and math and gap-minder are the paramount of man’s life, but they don’t know that these ‘aspects’ are a product of man’s use of reason, which is the very result of a rational philosophy.
Any organization that upholds tolerance and compromise as an ‘ideological’ base would sooner or later transform into a battlefield of conflicting or competing systems, ideas, beliefs, or ideologies. And such an organization is an invitation to an open clash between competing belief systems, wherein victory is determined by the number of heads and not by rational moral principles and the value of truth. And it would be the loudest group or the gang with the biggest number of followers that would sooner or later take control of that compromising, nihilist, tolerant organization.
The situation I have outlined above already took place in your nihilist group. And I suspect that the “victorious” ideological system existed from the very first day the FF was conceived. Did you not notice the political advocacy of the Freethinkers? They are the loudest, most ardent, and most passionate supporters of the Reproductive Health bill authored by the socialists in Congress. Can you tell me if this collective advocacy of almost all members of that group does not represent the totality of their common belief, ideology, or philosophical system? They claim that this socialist RH bill must be enacted into law to serve the interest of women and the poor, yet they refuse to see that this legislation is an affront to individual rights. They claim that health care is a right, yet it seems that they don’t really understand the very concept of right. Right is a man’s freedom of action, which is not synonymous to freedom to act by government permission. You have the right to health care services, but you don’t have the right to tell your doctor to treat you for free or ask the government to provide free health care services to the poor at the expense of those who produce wealth and work very hard for their own survival.
Yet it appears that it is their absolute adoration of science, of math, and of gap-minder and statistics that is blinding the most passionate members of the Freethinkers who claim that the United Nations-backed data on overpopulation is scientific, hence it must be taken as an absolute fact. Like the socialist proponents of the RH bill, most Filipino Freethinkers strongly believe that there is an undeniable symbiotic relationship between poverty and overpopulation. If they’re so concern about poverty, why don’t they try to understand the very root of this social and economic phenomenon? Why don’t they try to grasp the very source of wealth, which is man’s mind, and what makes it possible? Wealth is not produced by manual labor alone.
I say that the psycho-epistemology of the Freethinkers is the carbon copy- a reincarnation- of the collective mentality of the nihilist mystics who lived during the Dark Ages. Yes, when it comes to the issue of over population and poverty, their intellectual ancestor is none other than Thomas Robert Malthus (1766 – 1834) who conceptualized a tribal economic idea that man’s capacity to procreate is the enemy of his survival. Why am I saying this? It is Malthus who popularized this evil idea that is still being regarded as scientific today: “The power of population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man.” And this idea is what is now being embraced by the strongest advocates of population control.
Malthus wrote his thesis against population at a period wherein the technological and scientific wonders that we enjoy today were still beyond man’s imagination. And this is the kind of mentality that is now at work at the very core of the Filipino Freethinkers’ collective.
In regard to Ayn Rand, I consider her the greatest philosopher on earth because of her intellectual honesty, virtues, and rational ideas and principles. Yes, she committed mistakes, but she was willing to correct them, which she did. Unlike any philosopher I read, Ayn Rand offers an integrated philosophy for living on earth. Like I said, if you wanted to know how I view things, my blogsite is my only testimony.
