August 13th. Evidence.

There is Mud on the Bed, says the Owner. Really? I say. I wonder How that Got There? I say. Is that a Real Really? Asks the Owner, or One of those Fake Reallies used by Moral Dogs to whom the Facts of the Matter are of No Surprise. Squeaky […]

August 11th. Morality.

August 9th. Honours.

What is Honour? I ask the Owner. What does the Moral Dog think Honour is? Asks the Owner. The Moral Dog sense a Loaded Question. It is an Indication of Respect, I say. Kant was the first major Western philosopher to put respect for Persons, including Oneself as a Person, […]

August 5th. Lion.

I would like to be a Lion, I say. That is a Very Profound Statement, says the Owner. I trust the Moral Dog to explain it in a Profound Manner, says the Owner. If I was a Lion, I say, I would Give the Orders around here, I say. I […]

August 4th. The hot dog.

What is that? I ask. It is a Sausage, says the Owner. In a Bun, says the Owner. With Embellishments, says the Owner. I can see that, I say. Why, then, did the Moral Dog ask what it was? Asks the Owner. Because the Moral Dog heard what you said […]
