In today’s show Chris and the guys put “niceness” into the Aristotle Virtue Analyzer to see if it makes the grade. They determined that it depends on the political economy you find yourself in. If it is a consumerist global fantasy-land–well, it’s a virtue.
But is that a place that human beings really want to live–it means no history, no transcendence, and no depth. It’s all here and now and on the surface.
But can such an inhuman and false community even last? Perhaps “niceness” still means what it meant in 12th century, “Stupid”. https://www.etymonline.com/word/nice
Today’s show features new number music by Chris’s oldest son, Caleb!
