Is philosophy a self-congratulating group (of philosophers) ? A man-made environment, so to speak ?

Update:

And as such would such a loosely-knit group hardly recognise PHILOSOPHY As Critical.

(& of course I DO NOT mean SUBJECTIVE CRITICISM at all - that criticism is not worthy of study...let alone any real authoritative historical or environmental learning.

Therein this Question should be directed to students only - that is ANY such student who is concerned about their changing environment, the aims : & behavioural aims in particular)

    Philosophy must be learned The learned in it must know when to use it well. For it can be the Philosophy of love or hate, of peace or war, of when to build of when to destroy. So learn it well when to use each of its many faces.

    I don't think the philosophers that create a particular philosophy fit into this mold - but the vast majority of those that then adopt this person's philosophy (most of whom make no contribution themselves) are of this ilk.

    Sometimes I suppose. In the search for truth the renounce of despair, pithy, melancholy, need, remiss all convene and the search becomes a group therapy, where Alpha and Omega are soon forgotten for the comfort of group unity in some common purpose and soothsaying effort. The mind in hell finds no solace, nor comfort indeed. It despairs cast away from its brain, introverted into its own helplessness and should it find there, other wayfarers too, meted a similar fate, it becomes for awhile a poets society of like minded minds. The dragons still snort brimstone and wrath in legion, maybe the affection is lessened by the loving comfort of the kindred society, and torment abates somewhat. The soul is still in a state of abject dejection and forlornness, enraged by the parasites grating at the unhealed wounds of the inner conundrum of traumas or sadness. Soothsaying, self congratulatory or empathic, is a terrible faux pas of misplaced sympathies and efforts of synching than releasing. maybe the unity predicates the release, who knows the whelped of fortune turns. It goes on mans dilemma and struggle, as exampled by this dilemma, in that society for those benefiting from the revolutionary uprising of libertarians of the modern age of Aquarius, whereby enlightenment unites and takes lost spirits in one mind of one will to be better realm f peacefulness and contentment than previously witnessed or found here. Whatever, the misfortune of one invariably profit the other group, so is kept misfortunes for that primary purpose. Ad what of it, we must positive, single minded in maintaining ones dignity, ones composure ones faith in ones immortal and higher, ones Almighty, dare i say, spiritual resonance, then we will emerge irrespective of transigence of thoughtfulness and thinking. The Martians should look to their creator and establisher and why the Venusites haven't reached such a hiatus of awakening of the Mars man. lessons should be learnt and Man made deserving of his utopian heaven awaiting him. There are may ways and wenches to lure him away from the topic of the mind in hell retained there by her who would unhinge project Mars and its Almighty for more earthly profits and gains.
