for Pragmatic Beliefs and Essential Principles

When I started reading definations I almost gave this up as a lost cause. But I read on, and was rather impressed. All the key points come out well and succinctly. And to top it all off, the work as a whole seems quite sensical.

Ironically pragmatism is, like every other philosophical persuasion, useful for nothing more than intellectual masturbation.

Oh, man. You didn't misspell the title, did you?

On point IV of chapter I, I think you meant to say “ensue” rather than “ensure” at on point. Philosophically, you have this refined pretty well. However, there is a weakness in your definition of evil. As you have it written, it would either become void for vagueness, or possibly give rise to a dystopia in much the same way that state communism did. By defining evil as anything that could hinder the ideal state (or absolute communism), you give enough room for a state morality police to be legitimately formed.

Besides that, I think you've got it!

Unfortunately, fictionpress ate all of my brackets. If a sentence doesn't make sense, then the brackets were probably removed erroneously by fictionpress. I will try to find a way to remedy this, in the mean time if something doesn't make sense, try to add brackets around one clause.
