Western civilization – The Sum of All Hypocrisy

Yes, we Westerners are hypocrits. We think we know better. We think we are the only ones who are “civilized”. We think we are the only ones who know of human rights. We think we are the only ones who have the right to judge others (and invade their countries if we wish).

But enough of words.

Some times pictures talk louder than words.


Yes, our science is inherently connected to the money industry. Yes, our theories cannot explain anything in life as we think. Yes, Facebook and our precious “progressive” technology does not promote civilization and human understanding. Yes, our notions for tradition are the same ones which we accuse of “terrorism” in the countries in Middle East. Yes, we live every day using products produced by children slaves. Yes, we live every day using products produced in the polluting factories in China.

We are privileged. We are arrogant.

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
