Determinism



The discipline of desire is the background of character.

  1. One smart puppy. It would be so much easier if he had settled for "consumption" instead of "desire," but he didn't. I marvel (now that you mention it), that consumption never attracts the moral umbrage of his followers, whereas they've immunized desire with their puerile misappropriation of Jesus and their claim that the Fifth Amendment is a guarantor of property, which (obviously) is allocated by God's grace. Sorry to mention it; but there is no Locke, anymore.
