Fundamentalism

Fundamentalism is the persistent refusal to apply the three central concepts of ethics. It is extreme fanaticism, which turns against ethics.





  Central concept: Knowledge is a prerequisite for ethics


Fundamentalism restricts itself to a single source of knowledge. Fundamentalism refuses to examine this single source of knowledge from the prespective of changed circumstances and new insights.

  Central concept 2: Knowledge changes what ethical decisions are


Fundamentalists are not open to changing their mind about ethical decisions. As only a single, static source of knowledge is recognised as the universal solution, as the universal salvation, all other knowledge is excluded.

  Central concept 3: Ethics forces us to verify knowledge


Fundamentalism refuses to verify knowledge. It is a refusal to think.

  relegere vs. religare


These three central concepts of ethics precisely describe the original meaning of religion:

Latin relegere: "to consider carefully, to contemplate, to think about repeatedly, to be thoughtful in view of an important issue“.

Centuries later, the derivation of the word religion was held to be:

Latin religare: "to tie to something, to bind fast", which tends in the direction of the definition of fundamentalism.

Politics - political targets of PEGE Politics - political targets of PEGE
Nonpolitical, pragmatic, on the other side of ideologies counts in our politic only one target: A long time lasting civilization able to develop further on a stable base.


Philosophy Philosophy
Long-term planning and stability have to be the guiding rules of politics. A philosophy based on the mathematic branch of games theory.


Living standard
What is living standard? How is living standard correctly measured? Is it possible, that our living standard declines drastic, while uncorrect numbers want to make us belive it's like paradise?


Taxes tax politics
The consequences of the tax politic for humans and environment. The politicians claim to fight for humans and the environment, but the tax politics shows the exact opposit.


Energy politic
Decades of wrong energy politic. Instead of more living standard with less energy usage, partial the contrary was reached. A result of the wrong tax politic.




  Unethicalness - confusion leading towards doom


Ethics as the science of survival, unethicalness as confusion, as illogical behaviour that continually decreases the quality of survival, leads ever further towards doom.

Fundamentalists
All fundamentalists are simiilar in that they reject the three central concepts of ethics, as the tragic events on 22 July 2011 in Norway made plain once again.
