Sometimes, when I look at modern interpretations of Stoicism, I think Stoicism will crash and burn for good this time around. Today I saw a post in a very large group on Stoicism on Facebook which read:
"Anyone ever gone full on not giving one fuck about externals?"
Obviously, This is madness and what gives Stoicism a bad name. The heart of Stoicism is to care and to care about every manifestation - actual or potential - of virtue. Internal or external.
How could justice be a virtue if we shouldn't care about anything apart from ourselves? In fact: how could our own reason be good if it was the only good?
Our reason is good because it's a manifestation of logos. And any manifestation of logos is exactly as good as ours.
