Synthisophy - Integrating the wisdoms of history into present culture

Roots – Synthesis/History/Sophy

Synthesis - the integration of separate material or abstract entities into a single  
or unified whole

History - what has happened in the past; a detailed description of past events as
relating to a particular people, country, period, etc…

Sophy - Greek root: wisdom, knowledge; an intellectual system embracing
knowledge and truth; study of the real world based on fact and truth, science

As you know, the USA today is a very polarized society. Technology in the Digital Age can be challenging. It can also be an avenue for us to interact despite differences in viewpoints and geography. That is the role of Synthisophy, integrating the wisdoms of history based on fact and truth into present culture. To foster an understanding of the real world, it’s important to learn about points of view which don’t match your own.

Citizens are the crux of democracy, an educated and well informed citizenry is vital for the survival of a democratic republic. As Benjamin Franklin said after exiting the Constitutional Convention and was asked what sort of government the delegates had created, his answer was, “We’ve given you a Republic, can you keep it?” With synthisophy in mind the answer to his question is “Yes, we can.”

"We've given you a Republic, can

"If we falter and lose our freedoms,
it will be because we destroyed
ourselves." Abraham Linclon

we fall." John F. Kennedy
Inaugural speech

"I believe, as I always have, 
that America's strength is in
'We the People.'" Ronald Reagan

What do you think? Here’s a statement from Timothy Snyder, author and historian, 4.29.22:

The public relations advice is from Hitler. Hitler says if you tell a lie that’s of a certain scale, that’s big enough, people won’t believe that you could deceive them on that scale. And since they believe what they’ve taken first, they don’t want to disbelieve it later on. It becomes part of their life, it becomes what we now call an alternative reality, it begins to shape politics. It then begins to substantiate itself not only in memory, but in policy. You act as if it’s true, and then you move on to do things as if it were true. And the problem with the citizens and the big lies, people in general and the big lies, is once you do something, for example, storm the capital, once you do something that makes it more true, then the big lie really has to be true.

What do you think? The Supreme Court has voted to strike down the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, according to an initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito circulated inside the court and obtained by POLITICO. The draft opinion is an unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision which guaranteed federal constitutional protections of abortion rights and a subsequent 1992 decision — Planned Parenthood v. Casey — that largely maintained the right. “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Alito writes.

Large protests against such broke out across the country in the following days.

The Court confirms authenticity of the draft opinion, and Judge Roberts orders leak investigation.
