Qualesit's purpose is to provide both:

  1. An avenue for my personal expressions and
  2. Observations about who we are and why we think the way we think
Topics will range from business to politics to sex to human nature to just about anything that interests me. Comments are invited and absent spam and/or flaming remarks, will be posted without edits. Freedom of thought and expression are supported and your opinions matter as much as mine.

Aristotle was fond of teaching his students the process or perfecting argumentation and discussion. Aristotle and his contemporaries including Plato and before that Socrates, we fond of teaching the following:

  1. An Sit - First there is a question of fact
  2. Quid Sit - Next there is a question of definition. What is or was our prefaced fact?
  3. Qualesit - Now we can discuss the question of the value of our referenced defined fact. Is it good or evil? Is it healthy or destructive? Is it positive, neutral, or damaging? Once we have a value assigned to the defined fact, we may then begin to discuss our policies and actions as it relates to the overriding question

The purpose of this blog is to question the values and ultimately commentary as to policy to implement the values desired

I learned this by learning from the greatest masters or ethical persuasion of all time and I approach each and every value and policy conversation in this same time-honored manner and that is why I think the way I think, believe the way I believe, and live my life the way I live my life.
