If Reason Dies, So Goes Civilization

If Reason Dies, So Goes Civilization | Sage-ing | Scoop.it

Is there an insoluble glue that sustains what we call civilization, without which everything disintegrates? Okay, beyond breathable air, climate dynamics, atomic valence, electricity or gravity. Ordained commandments by divisive religions or tribal cultures routinely cleave the unity they claim to promote (for the one “human family”).  National boundaries, amplified by domestic scrums, only provide the continuity of nasty, oppositional factions and parties. Oddly, the globe’s vast, international transport systems defeat time, distance, and space without fostering much species connectedness. We may live all breathe the same air, indeed the same molecules, but curiously we exhale segregation, even estrangement.
