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.
