Psychology & Philosophy[edit]

No information yet available.

Philosophical Outlook[edit]

Philosophy: Pragmatism; whatever works (not what’s right). Let’s get results.

Theology: Individualism, libertarianism, capitalism, non-religious self law. I’m God. I make the law. I’m in it for me. What I know for sure is that there are things I want, and I’m going to get them. What’s in it for me? Humanitarianism and philanthropy are completely out.

Ethics: Skepticism

Psychology: Existentialism – analysis of individual existence in an unfathomable universe, and the plight of the individual who must assume ultimate responsibility for their acts of free will without any certain knowledge of what is right or wrong or good or bad.
