    Lo mejor que he leído sobre niños últimamente es el último párrafo de este artículo

    1. Efectivamente, magnífico, Scruton: "It is in these terms that I would respond, now, to both the radical freedom of Sartre and the radical feminism of de Beauvoir. Their philosophy was, primarily, one of rejection, a refusal to emulate or be bound by the sacrifices on which social order depends. They lived in a world of self-esteem, and because they did nothing to deserve this esteem, they postulated “bonne foi” or authenticity as sufficient grounds for it. If everyone lived and thought as they did, society would come to an end, and there would never again be children. But they needed those children—how else is the stock of lovers to be renewed? Like the effete English intellectuals of the Bloomsbury Set, the existentialists depended on what Lytton Strachey called “the marrying classes” to bear the burden of society, so that they could flit from flower to flower, enjoying a freedom that could never be allowed to those whom they despised for making it possible".

  2. El filósofo necesita a la polis


Poema amoroso

... I like to kiss you with tongue, with gusto with socks still on. I love you like a vulture loves the careless deer at the roadside. .....
