It has been said that E. Michael Jones is a “one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest.” If you are familiar with his work, then you can see why this statement is quite interesting.
Throughout his writings, Jones has always challenged readers to think through metaphysical issues seriously. No philosophical or intellectual project, he argues, is possible without moral law. “The intellectual life is a function of the moral life of the thinker,” he writes.
“In order to apprehend truth, which is the goal of the intellectual life, one must live a moral life. One can produce an intellectual product, but to the extent that one prescinds from living the moral life, that product will be more a function of internal desire—wish fulfillment, if you will than external reality. This is true of any intellectual field and any deeply held desire. In the intellectual life, one either conforms desire to truth or truth to desire.”
