Purpose Menu

Ivan Illich helped us rethink the purpose of institutions, like school, like medicine. I helped him help. But I’d already been stimulated in reverse engineering “purpose” by a Lauter & Howe article in NYR, 1969, or early ’70. pk’s online writing has expanded the exercise.

I’ve made good starts. Is any part finished? I have no candidates to offer: only beginnings, and more beginnings. But here’s a menu of what’s drifted or been steered into pKnatz blog (the new Knatz.com): pk blogs survivng, all pk’s domains having been destroyed by the fed: FBI etc.

The purpose of power is to correct experience with authority,
science with superstition, new thought with old magic.
No, Virginia, Galileo didn’t really see moons around Jupiter,
there can be no moons around Jupiter,
the Church has always said so.

Life Purpose
Home Page Purpose

There: I’ve scanned Pages and Page menus; next I’ll scan the Posts.
And I’ll add a new piece on the purpose of justice, law with regard to the state monopolization of money: it’s to degrade both.


About pk

Seems to me that some modicum of honesty is requisite to intelligence. If we look in the mirror and see not kleptocrats but Christians, we’re still in the same old trouble.
