It can be yes. Perhaps Plogsties would allow that "all too many people" have not been
given a green light to take their legitimate protests-to-another-level.
Take Greta Thunberg and her quest for Environmental Emergency action. She & her followers
have reacted to what they can see as their future being limited & curtailed, whilst the means
to solve the situation is available, but not being deployed.
Similarly the same situation exists here in the pure philosophy Category & has existed probably
since its start origin. That contributors & commentators had enough philosophy curiosity
& the pure pleasure of finding results in philosophy.. that after a while their discovery-answers
to philosophy questions TOOK ON A LIFE ALL OF ITS OWN..^
Whereupon they lost their philosophical curiosity in newer & newer or better and better questions.
Philosophy questions with increased knowledge content, together with the discovered answers fitting this "chosen jigsaw".
But we should see that the difference with Greta's approach is minimal.. and that Plogsties & others like Campbell Hayden are correct : that with turning our curiosity & "fine tuning" can lead
to Greater Expectation, accompanied by dissatisfaction... and increasing disappointment.
A loss of that early inhibition, childhood curiosity with described PHILOSOPHY content.
This transition from early problem solving to more complex problem solving was described
by Greta Thunberg as being suddenly able to tell the black-from-white, meaning for her
that the black problems "stood out" from those white shaded answer problems.
And she was able to place NOT JUST more-and-more problems into this autonomous
jigsaw picture but also was able to place answers of a Qualitative kind, where the
jigsaw could be used as a TEMPLATE TOOL.. a reliable tool for discovering further
environmental problem-answers to their related, mature questions of Environmental concern.
^ a subsequent "template tool" (a critical rational one).
Early subjective hopes, later critical & rational Environment solutions
One such rational but criticisable "pre-solved idea" is the THEORY of
Darwinism, where going from A LIFE OF ITS OWN it has become a
more & more specialised theory...Almost in tandem if you like with our
now modern Technical & technoLOGICAL culture. With associated
worries about a choice (= TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT) culture with a
ruinous type economy & diminishing social cohesive happiness.
