Sociology: philosophy democratized

Is sociology the democratization
of philosophy?
Seems so.
Pity that all the philosophical,
so-called 'speculative',
content has been evacuated
in doing so.

Philosophy demoralized.

But it has the advantage,
that you no longer have to think.
which is what democracy demands.

Sociologists peer at the shadows
passing ceaselessly across the wall,
trying to make some explanatory sense
of changes,
for which they are applauded
and amply rewarded.

That's why today sociology flourishes,
and philosophy has withered on the vine.

Poor humankind!
