One Rule for Life as Philosophy of Conservatism

If there is one rule for life, then it is:Change “u” and “a” with “o”; Change Humanism for Homonism.The Individual disappears in humanism. Humanity and collective rights are the final goals, individual being a mere means to achieve a humanistic higher goal. How to achieve individual primacy over collective through homonism? Mere lexical change changes nothing. Homonism tackles both know-what and know-how of such a change. Life is complex. Digital rules like a computer program cannot prescribe it. It is driven by genetic and memetic co-evolution. Memes are the primary constituency of the symbolic human world. Humans as symbolic beings are living only as much as we constantly interpret and reinterpret symbols. Symbolic interpretation and reinterpretation are sensemaking activities. Homonism helps readers to enter this symbolic world, to become human.There are concepts like individualism, egoism, sustainability, economy, freedom, equality, responsibility, liberal, progressive, conservative, left, right and many others that have been seriously misused significantly in the last century. Homonism reinterprets each of them in constant dialogue, one with another.

About the Author

Andrej Drapal

” Homonism develops one rule for life, for sustainable life, that really matters: to understand the value, freedoms and responsibilities of an individual. Individuals are building bricks of any society. If those bricks, those individuals, are corrupted, society breaks down.
Homonism does not only present this »simple« truth from various aspects but also creates a solid conceptual framework for each reader to make his own »brick«more robust, more durable and happier. It is a joy for any responsible individual to see his or her contribution to the growth of the society he or she is part of.
That such a positive approach is a consequence of conservative thinking is significant. Homonism presents the downfall of the present progressivist trend that is the prevailing philosophy of Western societies.
