Freedom Without Adjectives: The Marriage of Anarchy and Fallibilism

freed0m“Our highest truths are but half-truths. Think not to settle down forever in any truth. Make use of it as a tent in which to pass the summer night, but build no house of it or it will be your tomb.” ~ The Earl of Balfour

Anarchism means without rulers. Fallibilism means without certainty. Between the two, freedom flows.


Moral fallibilism is an epistemological perspective that doubles down on the fallibility of the human condition as a means toward empathizing with our mutual shortcomings as an evolving species, thus creating compassion and understanding between the extreme ideals of right/wrong, good/evil, and even the more concrete healthy/unhealthy.
