Epicurean Perspectives on Cultural Conflict

  • It's my job to try to keep everyone civil. One possible more neutral way to consider that question might be:

    1 - I can't imagine a devoted Epicurean gladly choosing to live in a hyper-supernatural religious society or any kind, unless he/she was truly deprived of better options. In which case, choosing to live in Mecca might be preferable to being dead (maybe / probably / possibly?). Anyone disagree?

    2 - If it were possible to have a "secular-islamic" society, along the lines of our modern non-fundamental Sunday-only Christians, would a dedicated Epicurean still have major objections to living within such a society, and if so, why?
