AURALYNN: "Hi Steve! I see you fine!"
STEVE (VO): "Just a sec. I'm gonna switch to the laptop in the kitchen."
STEVE: "Okay, Here I am in the kitchen. Jo jo's with me."
STEVE: "So, Jo Jo....Tell Auralynn what you told me about why existentialism sucks. I don't know what I think about it myself. We should let Auralynn decide which of us right. "
Okay, here's the argument. Existentialism attempts to demolish morality without replacing it with anything of equal value. Sartre says that being a moral person is a symptom of bad faith...a sign that a man is surrendering to group think, and not being true to his own nature. But that's silly."
JO JO: "I guess I believe in Cicero's notion of "Right Reason." We should accept as truth the fundamental moral principals that are common to all men and all nations in every time. Using those fundamental truths as a foundation, we should use reason to deduce a specific morality. We don't need Sartre's philosophy....."
JO JO: ".....or Camu's either. I mean, that line from Camu's 'The Stranger: 'I shot him because the sun was in my eyes'....that sounds fun and avante garde and all that, but if you actually knew someone who did that, you'd think he was crazy. You can't base a morality on silly stuff like that."
AURALYNN: "True, but in Cicero's time humanity may have been united in believing that slavery was natural and moral. You wouldn't want to base a morality on an idea like that, eith...mmf...blorf."
