If philosophy was the Love of wisdom shouldn't it be able to help in solving the Political crisis caused by divisive popularism… ?
… then moving-on to the bigger, worse threat in the environment of species extinction
(as discovered by Elisabeth Kolbert in her work called, The Sixth Extinction..which also was discussed on primetime t.v. recently) ?
Perhaps the threat of Human cultural species extinction ?

If only it was that easy. Political philosophy is a minefield, never mind philosophies like
nihilism or nationalism.

Humans have an amazing ability to empathize, to love, be compassionate, altruistic.
Those higher functions will never compete with greed,ego and the might makes right philosophy.
Not unless we survive long enough as a species to evolve past our self destructive s***t.

If philosophy was really the love of wisdom philosophers would be consulting the bible where jesus christ personifies himself as wisdom in the old testament.
