The Road to Hell | Book Review of Notes from Underground by Dostoevsky

Not sure if you’ve ever read Russian literature (I know I avoided it in high school). But, if you haven’t it is something unique. In Notes From Underground, Fyodor Dostoevsky shows how someone paves the road to hell for himself by how they think and act. So, in today’s episode, we’ll take a look into the psyche of a man on that path to learn from his mistakes. Buy your Copy of Notes from Underground here.

Where’s the Road to Hell?

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn says “The battleline between good and evil runs through the heart of every man,” however, he doesn’t mention where Heaven and Hell are found. By following the character in Notes From Underground, you will see how one takes the road to Hell. The battle between good and evil may run through every heart, but the battle between Heaven and Hell happens in every action we take. In this book, you’ll follow the thoughts and actions of a man on the road to hell. If you’d like to read it, you can grab your copy here.

“The mind is its own place and in itself, can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.”

Why you should read Notes From Underground

“The greatest happiness is to know the source of unhappiness.”

Fyodor Dostoevsky

The reason you should read this book is to learn the source of your unhappiness, which is most likely you. While reading this work, you’ll see how much you get in the way of your own happiness. Like I said above, we find Hell by choosing it daily. Unlike this world, the places we end up in the next are choices we make based on how we live. But, those things can come to be in this world. So, will you choose the road to hell or the Road to Heaven?

219. Why a Political Philosophy Is Important | Natural Law by Lysander Spooner Conversation of Our Generation

Our society has a problem discussing politics and political ideas, and I think I know the issue. Our country has divided itself on many issues, but that's nothing new. However, nowadays few people have a political philosophy underpinning their beliefs. I think that is at the root of the issue. If we had firm foundations, it would be easier to hear opposing viewpoints. But, when we build our ideas on foundations of sand, we have to stop them from washing away. Read more here: https://conversationofourgeneration.com/2021/05/07/why-a-political-philosophy-is-important–natural-law-by-lysander-spooner/ What is Political Philosophy? Political philosophy is a grounding in how you view the world. Basically, it acts as a framework to which you can attach your ideas. From there, you can build an understanding of the world by attaching new information to the framework. It also gives you a set of first principles for discussing politics. Buy your copy of Natural Law by Lysander Spooner here>> What is Natural Law? Natural law is Aristotle's political philosophy, Locke's political philosophy, and the basis for many other great thinkers. Lysander Spooner's work, Natural Law, is a great way to learn more about how Natural Law operates in a political context. It's a short book, and I think anyone would benefit from reading it. People who do not understand Natural Law, would learn a lot about it, even if they don't believe it from this work. What is My Political Philosophy? I adhere to an understanding of Natural Law that the moral truths and political truths are discoverable like science. I also believe in a broad basis of liberty for all men, and think it should be a top priority in political discussions. Also, I have faith in the common people in many ways, as long as they aren't led to believe falsities by the powerful elites. I fall in line with thinkers like Aristotle, John Locke, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Roger Scruton, and others. Whose political philosophy is reflected in the Declaration of Independence? The ideas reflected in the Declaration of Independence are the ideas I discussed above. The Declaration of Independence includes ideas from Thomas Jefferson, John Locke, Thomas Paine, and others. It is a call to liberty and justice for all, and laid the groundwork for American self-governance. — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/conofourgen/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/conofourgen/support
