Sample text

In principle, the ladder of the law might not have a top or a bottom. But, in practice, economic power matters. We know that law and the state are not immune to economic persuasion, to lobbying, to favours and so forth. And, because of this, the commons remains subject to the threat and corruption of privatisation and commodification. We do not want to suggest by this that all legal and public rights, including the protection of the commons by the state or global institutions such as the UN, are worthless.

But we are intrigued by the possibility of invoking his untimely challenge to the conviction that human beings can be the subject of moral evaluation qua human beings. That we might, in Nietzsche words, be able to undertake some form of ‘revaluation of values’. In this vein we suggest that it is not origins on which moral evaluation should be based, but on consequences. In a era in which social democracy’s pact with the market demands that citizen’s rights be balanced by ‘responsibilities’, and political philosophy continues its Sisyphian struggle to resolve the unresolvable - to proclaim the ethos of community while retaining that lonely figure of the modern sovereign individual as its real ethical core - we wonder whether this revaluation might include re-consideration of the yardstick by which we judge moral agents.

Before we rested on our laurels, and left to others to defend the morals. But now we heard, the call to fight and in the public we believe right is might! A Mouse: And now, we should recognise that we must fight, the King and aristocracies to guard our freedom and light. Let us form a commonwealth, a commonality of all things, equality, 53 fraternity and liberty!
