SARTRE

SARTRE is the pen name of James Hall, a reformed, former political operative. This pundit's formal instruction in History, Philosophy and Political Science served as training for activism, on the staff of several politicians and in many campaigns.

A believer in authentic Public Service, independent business interests were pursued in the private sector. As a small business owner and entrepreneur, several successful ventures expanded opportunities for customers and employees. Speculation in markets, and international business investments, allowed for extensive travel and a world view for commerce. He is retired and lives with his wife in a rural community.

"Populism" best describes the approach to SARTRE's perspective on Politics. Realities, suggest that American Values can be restored with an appreciation of "Pragmatic Anarchism." Reforms will require an Existential approach. "Ideas Move the World," and SARTRE'S intent is to stir the conscience of those who desire to bring back a common sense, moral and traditional value culture for America.

Not seeking fame nor fortune, SARTRE's only goal is to ask the questions that few will dare ... Having refused the invites of an academic career because of the hypocrisy of elite's, the search for TRUTH is the challenge that is made to all readers. It starts within yourself and is achieved only with your sincere desire to face Reality.

So who is SARTRE? He is really an ordinary man just like you, who invites you to join in on this journey.

    …as if the Western culture that we pay taxes to does not practice human blood sacrifice?!?

    Heterogeneous teams of diverse people arrive at productive conclusions and positive solutions faster than homogeneous teams – this has been demonstrated and is a statistical reality in this timeline.

    Sartre states, “In order to fulfill our nature as a rational creature, humanity must believe that rightful moral principles are ubiquitously applicable.”
    “MUST believe?”
    Sounds like a grand recipe for r-e-p-r-e-s-s-i-o-n.

    We bursted out of class – Had to get away from those fools – We learned more from a 3-minute record than we ever learned in school
    We made a promise we swore we’d always remember: No retreat, baby, no surrender
    Like soldiers in the winter’s night, with a vow to defend: No retreat, baby, no surrender.  {The Boss}

    “Admittedly, each act of moral conscience is individual, but when society promotes a cultural relativism mystique, in order to establish an egalitarian moral neutral acceptance, the glue that binds civilization together breaks apart.”
    So, I suggest that egalitarianism is NOT morally-neutral, rather its roots are anchored in morality as it springs from giving other people(s) the benefit of the doubt before judging their actions; it is based on charity towards others.

    Additionally, Society should break apart so that it does not advance any closer to the Draco-Reptilian New World Order, a vision sprung from the White Western World – an Order so utterly representative of the pinnacle of repulsive nihilistic, cannibalistic habits that the Aztecs would blanche!

    Sartre proposes that “The superiority of Western culture can be objectively demonstrated when cultures are appraised based on the extent to which its core values are life affirming.” Nice thought, except that Western societies do NOT currently defend life. The West – our culture that we give blood and treasure to – thrives on the entrenched industrialized, capitalized science of maiming or killing people through war and chemtrails. Today’s total weaponization of Earth’s biosphere encompasses mini-satellites to dragonflies, “computerized” crickets to the continent-spanning WeatherWarfare of pulsed electromagnetic waves. Still, as is his right, Sartre apparently kneels at the altar of science and technology as wielded by the Westernized natural man.

    You state, “An individual relativist takes standards seriously perhaps even by going so far as establishing a strict, burdensome moral code for himself. Under this position, we view the code as binding only for that one person.” You then equate a similar “personally-devised ethical system” with nihilism, but follow up with this contradictory statement: “Admittedly, each act of moral conscience is individual.” 
    It’s either pie or cake, but not both.

      “Western civilization represents man at his best.” This can only be said by one of very limited life experience. Is this some sort of sales pitch for a life or life style that is not and will never be available to the vast millions or billions on the planet?

      I’ve lived and traveled in numerous European countries and what was the Soviet. But I found “man at his best” living in the bush with Amerindians in South America. In so-called ‘civilization’ one finds a lot of over-educated elitist people who grab power and superimpose their ideas and programs on the masses that result in good jobs for them and poverty (now austerity) for the rest with more to come.
      I suggest the author start traveling ON THE GROUND, not in some tourist bus. Or go live in the gutter like all the homeless people in one of the best Western countries. In other words: get real.

    Western civilization is rife with imperialism, monopolistic predator capitalism, conjured and misnomer-ed social Darwinism and general deceit as a tool of power-brokers against the population of citizens.

    There is far too little evidence that the human species can be summarily characterized by the phrase “rational character”. I do hope that in the battle of governance that rational character will be the prevailing asset of humanity. This is certainly not a forgone conclusion.

    In other words, Western civilization, though having many assets that could be benefiting humankind, is at risk of realizing the greatest destructive and delusional pursuits ever perpetrated upon the Earth.

    Let’s see if we can’t think a little deeper with a bit more nuance, Mr. Sartre.

      Another public school education.

    Thanks for addressing the critical issue of culture and its impact on human development. The morons currently in control of our planet seem determined to eliminate thousands of years of complex culture and replace it with what suits them. Had the NWO planned World War Hoax#1 not occurred, our world would have been a much better place. The Hejaz Railway would have sealed a treaty among the Sultan, Tzar, and Emperor, the entire middle east would have been at peace and prosperous as a result of new rails for pilgrims and travelers alike, and all three rulers may very well have agreed to a better status for Greece and avoid what in fact happened.

    But alas, we got stuck with the creeps. Barbara Lerner Specter was a mult-culti dingbat who said Europe was not going to be the mono cultural societies that they were in the last century, and that they were going into multi cultural mode, and that it was going to be very difficult, etc,. My goodness, that’s interesting information coming as it does from a dingbat, no? She’s around somewhere, like every NWO pest, vanishes and reappears on the internet, like all the rest of them.
