[Dangerous Thoughts] Bonhoeffer’s Theory of Stupidity

June 15, 2022

Prompted by Flag Day, Carter briefly comments on the danger of pressuring children to recite pledges, especially one as bad as the Pledge of Allegiance. He then dives into some questions from the community, starting with a moral analysis of slavery, indentured servitude, and the concept of individual sovereignty. Next, he discusses induction, arguing that it is the basis for all knowledge. Then he addresses a question about women’s suffrage and its effect on Western Civilization, treading delicately into some controversial territory. Finally, he answers a question about what “hill you are willing to die on” in defense of individualism before ending with a review of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s theory of stupidity.
