Obviously, everyone suffers from inferiority in one form or another. For example, Adler began his theoretical work considering organ inferiority , that is, the fact that each of us has weaker, as well as stronger, parts of our anatomy or physiology. Some of us are born with heart murmurs, or develop heart problems early in life; Some have weak lungs, or kidneys, or early liver problems; Some of us stutter or lisp; Some have diabetes, or asthma, or polio; Some have weak eyes, or poor hearing, or a poor musculature; Some of us have innate tendencies to being heavy, others to being skinny; Some of us are retarded, some of us are deformed; Some of us are terribly tall or terribly short; And so on and so on.
Founded by Brock in 2004 as a liberal counterweight to “conservative misinformation” in the press, Media Matters has in less than a decade become a powerful player in Democratic politics. The group operates in regular coordination with the highest levels of the Obama White House, as well as with members of Congress and progressive groups around the country. Brock, who collected over $250,000 in salary from Media Matters in 2010, has himself become a major fundraiser on the left. According to an internal memo obtained by TheDC, Media Matters intends to spend nearly $20 million in 2012 to influence news coverage.
Can you better define what you mean by “moral intuition” and how one makes a moral argument from said intuition? Do you think authority/respect, In-group/Loyalty, and Purity/Sanctity are ethical concepts? If so, can you defend them in terms of harm/care and fairness/reciprocity? I see these three aspects of morality as tools for enforcing or subverting compliance to ethics. Like any tool, it can be used as a weapon if held the right way. This fact does not make them bad; we need tools to build things… it just means we need to respect their power and use them wisely.
