epistemological anarchist

You mean like Feyerabend? I'm not sure how it relates.

Are my posts incoherent?

I can't tell, something about them is hard for me to engage, I think because they sometimes demand a lot and it becomes overwhelming.

What did you think of the docu I linked on autism and shamanism?

I didn't manage to read that because of the thing I just mentioned.

Yes, I did read the abelism side bar link you suggested and will choose my words more carefully here as a result in the future.

As specified in the Update section of my original comment, I didn't use the word euphemistically (or metaphorically)...

Good to know your thoughts on over PC madness; I'm a bit of an epistemological anarchist myself...

What did you think of the docu I linked on autism and shamanism?

Are my posts incoherent? I do put efforts to express myself as concisely as possible.

It's a little hard to engage your posts, there's a lot going on in them. Not sure if you did manage to read the article in the sidebar I mentioned; perhaps we understand it differently.

Separately, just seeing your changed comment, wanted to mention that I'm not interested in political correctness, only the destruction of authority.

Thanks OP for pointing that out. I am familiar with ablelism but will read through your suggestions on Raddle in regards. That one slipped through my radar...

The word delusional or perhaps the term cultural schizophrenia would have been better suited for the brigade.


See PIE (Pan Indo European / Sanskrit roots):

उन्मत्त / अनुन्मत्त

Is the word sane considered abelist?

It has dubious origins dating back to the burning of the witches...

Since I consider industrial society collectively insane; being part of that (whether I like it or not), does that mean I'm discriminating against myself?

Is Erich Fromm's book titled "The Sane Society" considered abelist language?

And insanity is no joking matter...

I'm also familiar with R.D. Laing's work on the subject of "schizophrenia"(PDF) and how society discriminates against altered states of consciousness, etc.

On my mobile now with limited Internet but looking into this...


Upon further investigation, I unapologetically meant to use the word insane exactly as intended according to it's original meaning and not in a discriminatory or ableist way; I don't use the word lightly or euphemistically...


This entire conversation reminds me of this documentary I saw years ago:

The Horse Boy (2009)
