-- Though it may seem quaint today, the architecture of ancient morality and religion intuitively embodied a quantum-like understanding of human freedom, self-determination, spontaneity, and creativity. Freedom and spontaneity are presupposed in the notion that a person CAN be viewed as "owning" enough of his own behavior to call him responsible for it. Objectification and stereotyping efface freedom and spontaneity in rendering inherently finite and quantifiable objects. The notion of personal reesponsiblity is founded on what is, to empirical methods, an absurdity and a self-contradiction. Basing policy decisions solely on the empirical perspectives of social science is how modernity nudges human society toward socialism and communism.
