    Are Ideology and Morality like AIG and Citibank?


    Are AIG and Citibank too big and complex to fail?

    Can our high tech capitalism, where extraordinary power rests in ordinary hands, survive such a situation?

    How can capitalism adjust?


    Are ideology and morality too big and complex to be encompassed by science?

    Can our high tech species, where extraordinary power rests in ordinary hands, survive such a situation?

    How can the human species adjust?



    I am really only interested in this later sequence of questions.

    Darwin informs us that the species that fails to adapt to its changing environment will soon become toast. If we lack the intellectual sophistication required to make a science of these two concepts, ideology and morality, then we lack the sophistication required to adapt to our changing environment and thus will shortly become toast.

    Any domain of knowledge can be studied in a systematic, disciplined, and empirical manner. Our educational system prepares us only to act as producers and consumers and not as sophisticated citizens capable of meeting our changing needs to adapt.
