‘Philosophers are despots who have no armies to command, so they subject the world to their tyranny by locking it up in a system of thought’.

*A. Rublev – St. Matthew the Evangelist

    Philosophers don’t do that– priests do, except that priests can also have armies. A philosophy is for eacn person to persue, borrow from or reject as his or her reason dictates, which is quite different form religion. Religion is tyranny.

    • But doesn’t need to be tyranny towards outside world and people, it’s often in our own mind, every time we create a model of the world there is a need to force the reality into it yet only in thoughts. Religion, as well as philosophy is a theory about the universe, they are much alike, for some reason I even put a picture of an evangelist not a philosopher, funny. Thank for the opinion!
