Huxley’s Inconsistency

“Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life. The only completely consistent people are the dead.”

― Aldous Huxley

Huxley may have been referring to social behavior. Without much knowledge it is more challenging to be consistent since one hasn’t much to consist with. Physical laws are consistent in nature as is an orderly society and enforcment of civil rights if they are to be meaningful. Fascism was an outgrowth of romanticism and irrationality generally and there is far too much of that in U.S. leadership today. Excellence consistently promoted in fields of intellect and progresss require consistent effort.

Philosophy, theology, contemporary issues including politics, economics, ecosphere, science fiction and history-these are useful things to write about that I have an interest in. I have published a few book collections-some free ebooks as well at my lulu.com/garycgibson bookpage. Usually I live in Alaska. I took an Associate degree from the University of Alaska and a Bachelors from Excelsior College in 1991.
