Observances

  • We do not desire money. We desire prestige/wealth. Money is just a sign.
  • The Rawlsian original position is a game theoretical situation. As such, it doesn’t represent reality.
  • Responsibility finds its first use in the late 1700s, at the beginning of modern “capitalism.” Before this, we were bound by duty.
  • Duty and responsibility are not the same thing.
  • The rise of capitalism meant the end of debtor prison.
  • The contradiction between the virtues of the micocasm and the order of the macrocasm is the essence of tragedy.
