« House, M.D.--Clawing Its Way to the Bottom | Main | Cesar, This Is What I Am Talking About »

“What? You don’t let the dog feel and act spontaneously like a dog? Oh, the horror! The repression and inhibitions of natural urges! And what could be more un-democratic as a ‘pack leader’? Respect? Who deserves respect in this life? All dogs are sinners, I tell you, and they don’t deserve forgiveness. However, the dog needs unconditional love like human because we are all dogs underneath. Only when there is no private property will the dog-eat-dog bestiality give way to a new dog, an altruistic dog, a super dog! Reality will conform!” – Karl, Friedrich, Sigmund, & Vladimir

PS That story certainly lifted my mood. And thanks for the condolences over at L&C.



Don't ever get a dog!!!!!! (Just kidding, of course). Yours is a terrific statement all by itself, and it would drive Cesar into insanity. I enjoy watching the interplay of metaphysics, epistemology, and ethics through his approach to dogs, and it gives me a lift just to watch it. He makes it all so very clear, and he might well be the last person to realize how philosophical his work really is.

You are more than welcomed.

  • Ideas power men. Men power cultures. Cultures power civilizations. Civilizations power history. Ideas are the fuel of man's mind.
  • It is not a question of whether man chooses to be guided by [philosophy]: he is not equipped to live without it. (Ayn Rand)
  • History is philosophy teaching by example (Lord Bolingbroke)
  • The trouble with nations is that there is an unequal distribution of capitalism. (Rush Limbaugh)
  • Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear. (Thomas Jefferson)
