“The Crisis In…”

It’s a phrase we usually use because it’s fun to talk about “the crisis” but its no fun to do anything about it. Is philosophy in crisis? Why should I care? Why not simply philosophize?

Oh right- because of the common good. I’d be better at this if others around me were actually philosophizing and not fascinating themselves with baubles of trivia. We’d all be better if we could work together, and the crisis keeps us from working together.

So the prime reason that I hate the crisis is that it keeps me from having co-workers and, well, friends. The end of the crisis is not when the enemy is silenced, but when friends are working together to philosophize.
