The Irrationality of Rational Philosophies

To argue that a philosophy must be rational is by itself an irrational philosophical opinion. A rational philosophy is a myth. It does not exist. All past and present philosophies are fundamentally irrational because the philosophical problems that they grapple with remain unsolved and the solutions that they offer defy reason. When philosophers acquire the pole position in politics and culture, they unleash one irrationality after other, and bring about the decline of their nation. Philosophers can coin profound arguments, they can develop theories which seem amazing on paper, but they cannot create systems which work in the real world—to create workable systems, you need people of skill, people of worldly experience.
