Enlightenment Defended
Politics • Spirituality/Belief • Culture
Enlightenment Defended will repel the dark nihilism of “post-truth”, woke culture, identity politics, and political correctness. It will catalyse the bright flame of the enlightenment —liberty, reason and progress.

Enlightenment Defended will create an open realm of vigorous philosophical debate through animation, documentaries, poetry, humour, music and myth. People are many-sided in both apprehension and enjoyment.

Eddie Stoic Recites Epictetus. Episode 1.

The Animated Character of Eddie Stoic.

(Eddie Stoic is Model BN.0000 of the AGI Rational Emotive Constructs series. See Young Zeno, Mod. BN.0001.)

The character I have created, Eddie Stoic, will recite, in a caricatured broad London-like accent, nuggets of wisdom from the ancient stoical philosophers. Eddie Stoic is a distillation of a conception of the wise old man pontificating in the local pub in a warm and friendly manner with charming eccentricities. The attractiveness of the character, I believe, emanates from the surprising juxtaposition of Eddie Stoic’s seemingly incongruous broad accent and subtle profundity of the aphorisms flowing from his lips. (I say “seemingly” because wisdom doesn’t have an accent.)
