President Donald Trump

Press Secretary Sean Spicer


Embracing technology is often a source of isolation, but it can also be much more. It can be an avenue for us to interact despite differences in viewpoints and geography. It’s the role which is filled by Synthisophy, which means “The integration of socially pertinent information derived from the study of history into the present culture.” This website offers space and encouragement to move forward culturally and intellectually in vigorous and respectful discussions on current societal issues.

It may sound oxymoronic to suggest we are together as a collective of individuals, but it’s how the Internet has assembled us in cyberspace. Thanks to the wide-ranging inroads various communication platforms have made in sharing ideas, with or without rancor, it would be remiss of us as a society not to debate the social, political, scientific, and historical issues which have brought us through the digital and the information age.

Building Debate on a Strong Foundation

Throwing around baseless accusations, claims, or “facts” is not the route to meaningful debate. The foundation for weighty statements can be traced to the scientific method. This method takes a hypothesis, and then through an experiment or data research, either proves or disproves it.

When using this method to back up statements, it’s a path toward civil discussion. It is hard to refute fact-based claims which are supported by evidence. Wild, blanket statements with no connection to reality are quickly exposed, and eventually, it is hoped, that proponents of these statements will veer toward more reasoned debate. Here at Synthisophy we encourage the spread of intelligent commentary in the forums on many topics at facebook/synthisophy.

It’s not all Black and White

To foster an understanding of the real world, it’s important to learn about points of view which don’t match your own. The world is not a place where ideas and concepts can all easily be categorized into one vein or another, black or white. There are shades of grey to just about anything you can imagine, and that’s where our common understanding must lie. I see your view, and you see mine, and we either meet in the middle or agree to disagree in a mature, reasonable fashion.


Bringing the Two Together

 A two-party system underlies our democracy, and it’s what we know. It has also fostered polarization in our society, where you’re either right or left, with precious few moderates to be found. Reasoned, intelligent debate based on sound principles is the key to understanding and the way to enlightenment and truth.

The next Democratic presidential candidate debate is 3 weeks away. Here are a few replies in response to our post on the democratic debate two weeks ago:

Keep talking about free stuff and attacking each other and you loose again.

The dems are a joke. They do not represent American values. Waste of air time.

When will the real dem candidates show up. These clowns are too boring. Such outlandish remarks are insulting to even cnn viewers.

Their message seems to be for the small more radical part of their party that appears to not even be the majority of their base.

I'd call it a clown show but clowns work and have talent.

Best comedy show this year.

With these posts in mind we thought it would be appropriate to create a poetic parody on this democratic debate. How’s it sound? Share your views at facebook/synthisophy!

Twinkle twinkle little stars,

So far left, ill-liberal you are,

Up in ivory towers so high,

Detached from reality, my Oh my,

Twinkle twinkle little stars,

Get a clue, come back from Mars.


Don’t worry, next week there’ll be a parody on Trump and the Republican party:)

Last week was a post lambasting the democratic presidential debates and candidates.  So this week, being centrist as we are, we thought we’d create a post lambasting Trump and his administration.  So here’s a con-Trump parody:

Humpty Dumpty Trumpty

Hump-T Dump-T sat on a wall,

Hump-T Dum-T had a great fall,

All the king’s horses (that’s all of his staff),

And all the king’s men (that’s all of his cabinet),

Couldn’t put Trumpty together again.

So how ‘bout we Trump-T, let’s go ‘head and Dump-T,

Like the Boston T-party, like Kim and Vlad Hump-T,

So don’t vote for Dum-T, in two thousand twenty,

Let’s go ‘head and Dump-T, for the good of the country.


How’s it sound to you?  Share your views at facebook/synthisophy!
