For Philosophy: Who Are the Brain Police?

At least a few skeptical people would like to know.

The scientists.

Pidgeon-holing philosophy into analytic and nothing else.

Kant.

Deontological ethics/telling you what your intentions should be/what your thoughts should be/what duty you have to humanity.

John Stuart Mill.

Consequentialist ethics/telling you what you should do based on approximations of the consequences of your actions/what thoughts you should have about your actions.

Ugghh. This topic elicits feelings of disgust.

Trouble is, the real brain police are secret. So when you want to think freely there's no one to bribe.

Brian has started regarding himself as some goddamn elder statesman, if that's any help.

If I was confident enough in my assertions the answer would be no one. Since Im not; the answer is correspondence or lack thereof.

What did we have before police? What did we have before that? What did we forget we had? What did we have before self-proclaimed victory? "Nothing?"

Re: For Philosophy: Who Are the Brain Police?

How can somebody else's word salad or sprinkled-topping of perspective decide how much uncertainty means to you?
