nice. I'm ready to get on that Reading Rainbow
@William_1994 - WA I missed this somehow, this is really well wrote. The only thing I would add is citations.
@CarletonJ I have edited my draft to appeal to race as an instrument for community and establishing virtue, rather than as an a priori concept. Although the latter is closer to my position, I feel that my new draft will be more persuasive as it appeals to the Thomist ethics to which my friend adheres.
Communities arise within a specific people whom share history, language, and customs; that almost always means within a race. These communities allows us to comprehend the telos of being human, although expressed differently; consider the aesthetic in black and white churches. As such, we must be aware of our race to establish the virtues that lead to our flourishing. In this way, we may think of a community as a family and a race as an extended family. The moral laws applying to this extended family are much like those applying a person’s biological family, specifically concerning love and duty. A mother loves her child more than other children, so also should people within a certain ethno-cultural community (expressed within a race) feel a special filial love between them and act in accordance to actualize their virtues.
@William_1994 - WA This is perfect. Have you ever considered writing articles or even a book?
I used to write occasional articles under my pseudonym ("Cultural Heresy"), but I deleted everything after Cville. I would like to do that again in future.
@William_1994 - WA wait a minute, do you use Twitter? One of the accounts I follow is Cultural Heresy.
Yes, that's me haha
Hahaha this is crazy. I've been following you for some time now. I enjoy your tweets.

@everyone has anyone read The Prince by Machiavelli
Yea I read it a couple years ago. I would say that book and a couple other books by Machiavelli is worth reading
His moral compass is pretty messed up though
I read that and a compilation of his political writings
What do you score?
@Procella Eques I have never heard anything about his morals
I read the prince
What did you think?
@TV I’m gonna read it again because some of it slipped my mind.
I think most people understand he's strategically right, but disagree with the morals behind it. That's why I like it
It’s a pretty good book
I’ve never read the entire thing, the parts I’ve read were really insightful
@Tron that’s good I read all of it I just got to go back and read it again it’s been awhile
I’ve finished the Prince recently it’s short. Everyone should take a look at it
