Welcome to my blog, my name is Otto Borden. I need to think and write about the world and that is what I will do here. Specifically I want to make progress towards some sort of fundamentally secular conception of morality and political economy. I am not fond of labels because they tend to suggest answers for problems one has not asked yet, but I could reasonably be labeled some blend of secular humanist, Marxist and Buddhist. Of course it depends what those terms mean to you but if you read my blog I will be making a concerted effort to explain myself better. My writings will focus primarily upon philosophy, politics and economics. I would like to make clear to myself some way(s) to expose the teachings of emptiness and dependent origination specifically to some sort of philosophical and logical rigor and then bring them to bare on political and economic thinking. Wish me luck…
