The new Westworld HBO show does such a good work enveloping truth in fiction. But where is our update? Is the update found in “the healing practices of learning, honesty, humility, compassion, and kindness”? Isn’t this built in? Why do we need a new generation of children forged with a moral compass? Anyone surgically removed our moral compass? We who should raise this new generation, are we not enough in numbers now? What special political power will the children of tomorrow have that we today don’t? How many children per enlightened family should we have? Should we breed for progress? Why does moral behavior control social consciousness? Hasn’t this view done enough harm? Why is survival tied to social consciousness?
What is social consciousness? Collective, I get it. But social? Sounds like a too polite call to action and a recycled “Love your neighbor as yourself”, the schizophrenia causing push to universal trust.
