What would be your perfect, Utopian world?
To quote James Stewart (Harvey): "In this world, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant. Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me."
Truly Intelligent people recognize the humanist value of all life, not just those with a certain IQ, you dumb*ss. Take a lesson from Walt Whitman, and reflect on how really we're all just atoms, one and the same. And one day, we'll all be grass. Every race, every gender, every braincell. Maybe however many centuries ago, an atom on your little finger belonged to the biggest fool around.
If we were to euthanize all the average or below people of intelligence, we'd be murdering millions of thinking, feeling, human beings. Whether you can work out advanced calculations or grasp the concepts of advanced chemistry or metaphysics doesn't change the degree of which you feel or experience pain and emotion.
It's people like you who have a complete disregard for a large part of what defines humanity that's the larger problem.
You sound like you might hold Nietzsche like values. Not to mention, your "Utopia" sounds pretty dystopian to me.
what is the theme of (the shattering) a world lit by fire?
A World Lit Only By Fire by William Manchester was truly a fascinating read. His delightful insight to the medieval world and so much more was indeed captivating. Manchester’s account of Magellan’s trip was amazing, down to the last detail. Though brief, “The Medieval Mind” was still informative and enlightening. Overall, Manchester’s book was, in my opinion, brilliantly written.
The Shattering is the second section of the book by William Manchester called A World Lit Only By Fire. This section in the book focuses mainly on the church starting with the Borgia popes and their deeds and ending with Martin Luther's reforms and founding of the Protestant church. Manchester also speaks in depth about the Protestant Reformation as led by former Catholic monk Martin Luther. Continuing with his focus in regards to spirituality, he writes on the rise of humanism in the early Renaissance days and its celebration of secularism over piety. He covers humanist scholars, and concentrates also upon the humanist tendencies of Renaissance leaders such as Michelangelo and Da Vinci. Speaking also of the European nobility of the era, Manchester elaborately describes the life and decisions made by England's King Henry VIII. He writes of Henry's wives and the King's eventual separation from the Church despite his being once, according to Manchester, an "ardent Catholic."
There were many themes as the Catholic Church, spirituality, the Renaissance and the leaders at that time.
Have a pleasant day.
