All of life is about story telling isn’t it? He who has the best story to tell — that’s the man people want to hear, over and over again.
It’s the job of sociologists, anthropologists and big history guys to look at how these stories interact and organize around each other to form complex systems.
But it’s the job of philosophy to reduce complex ideas into simple ones. And of political philosophers to simplify complex networks of stories and events into simpler ones, so that at the very least, the is-ought paradigm is clear.
After that Free Will comes into play. Ha ha. Guess where that will go. But at least, it’ll still be a deliberate and informed decision
On second thoughts — If all of life is about story telling, you should have the better story to tell.
