Greek philosophers, engaged in mental gymnastics, noticed that differing arguments accidentally agreed. Logicians described “the accidentals” as coincidental, but today technicians describe signals that indicate emerging values–trends, or patterns of existence that may be random but have a predictable future, nevertheless.
Technically, things just sort of happen accidentally on purpose. (Yes, I know…it doesn’t really make sense.) What emerges from accidental reality is an objective purpose.
Randomly combine Hydrogen and Oxygen in the proper proportion and water accidentally appears every time. Nobody really knows why this happens… just that it actually happens. We then creatively intend it with purpose, on demand, to actualize a probable outcome.
Accidentally on purpose, we intend the risk in a proper proportion. We know that financial combinations, for example, will probably cause a conflict of interest, which is why Senators Warren and Sanders call for reinstatement of Glass-Steagall.
If the massive harm (and the accruing benefit to the upper class) is coincidental to weakening Glass-Steagall then strengthening it probably won’t have much effect, right? If it does, it would be accidental, wouldn’t it?
