Poisoned Roots

by Glenn Fairman2/4/16

Aristotle inferred that the more equal two men become, any significant difference is greatly magnified in the mind of the perceived “lesser.” The implications of this truth, if it is one, sends down poisoned roots not merely into civil society and the political sphere, but more importantly, taints the psychological/spiritual waters that animate a wayward human nature.

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had Watson observe (I think it was in The Valley of Fear, the novel based on actual conditions in a Pennsylvania coal-mining area) that mediocrity knows nothing better, whereas brilliance can appreciate greater brilliance. I suspect he was right, and this doesn’t entirely match Aristotle’s conclusion. Ir doesn’t mean Aristotle was totally wrong, either.

    Human nature allows for so many poisoned roots to to take hold, it is a wonder we haven’t yet destroyed ourselves. I suppose the lack of the necessary technology had something to do with this. The bomb has only been around about seventy years. In any case, I think we are developing much more effective ways, such as AI.
