Allegiances

In college I split the things I cared about into two categories:

  1. The things of which I approve.
  2. The things I love.

Being a young rationalist, I sided against my loves, for things of which I approved.

This lasted into my mid-30s. Starting on my 34th birthday, under the influence of Nietzsche I switched allegiances to what I loved.

Now I am back again, though in a less severely dichotomous form.

I still love Nietzsche, but my allegiance is with John Dewey.
