What is Love?Submitted by Micah68 on Sun, 02/17/2013 - 23:40
It's been really interesting to see the responses to various threads here asking questions such as, 'What is God?', 'What is Liberty?', etc.
I think that all (most, many?) of us here would agree that an essential, if not the most essential factor in fostering a r3VOLution for Liberty, is that it be done with Love.
Given that, I'd really 'love' to hear responses to the following questions:
- What is Love? Where does it come from? Is it something transcendent or not?
- Do you agree that Love is the foundation of Liberty, or is it just a nice-to-have thing on the side?
- Will Liberty last in a society that does not have Love?
I think you probably know my views already from other threads (Christian, Platonic view on ideal Love existing and being essential); but I'm interested to hear the variety of views that are out there on 'what is Love?'.
Kind of fits in with us just having celebrated Valentine's Day, I guess. :)
