Idiots argue by exception

As society separates its layers, more fools and idiots insert themselves into debate and analysis. Their goal is to remove the requirement that logic prevail so that they can then argue for emotional and appearance-based changes. One favorite tactic of fools involves using exceptions, and this comes in two forms: first, they argue by pointing…

The pact or the contract

A pact can be broken, but so can a contract. The pact is, in a certain sense, unofficial, whereas the contract is “official.” However, nature does not operate according to a standard of official/unofficial conduct. What is a contract but a formalistic pact? The pact is to the contract what the laws of nature are…

It’s only rape

Maybe you’ve heard by now about the recent report detailing how over the last 16 years more than 1,400 children have been abused and gang raped, and how they were ignored by police, in fact viewed with contempt by police, and how their parents were arrested when they tried to rescue them. I know the situation…

The separation of Conservatives from Christianity

This quotation from Christian popular music artist Rich Mullins put a finger on what some of us have noticed recently: a quiet exodus of conservatives from involving religion with politics, and a retreat by many from Christianity altogether. Christianity is not about building an absolutely secure little niche in the world where you can live…

Democracy reveals its end result: a weepy mob looting in anger

Like many major events, the riots in Ferguson MO have roots in a thoroughly messy human situation. Drunk on victimhood, weeping with self-pity, and yet willing to blame others and so lash out in rage, the protestors first complained and then accelerated to full retribution. Steal – ruin – destroy. 99% of media and commentators…

The end result of democracy

In the modern United States, we see the end result of democracy: a society based on desire voting itself pleasures while ignoring the accumulation of debt and decay. Democracy distinguishes itself from other forms of government by being based on human preference alone. When the group decides it wants something, it votes for it, aided…

Ferguson burns for our pretense

Something burned in Ferguson. It was bigger than the riots, the arson and the violence. It was an American myth that we can keep brushing the chronic problems of diversity under the rug and bribe rioters to go home by being nice to them. It was the myth that diversity works at all. The Ferguson…

Why the left is obsessed with race

For years they kept it under wraps by accusing anyone who mentioned the topic of being a “racist.” Simultaneously they concealed their own intent toward topics regarding race by giving them pleasant names. But now the leftist agenda stands revealed as it becomes clear that their policy is exclusively racial, and aims to replace the…

Awash in hatred

The left becomes unnerving as time goes on not only because all of their plans have failed, but because the mask comes off and we see what is beneath the victimhood and passive aggression: raw hatred. For people to advocate policies that they know will fail, and will in turn destroy society, requires an egoism…

Usury

History tells us that usury — the act of lending money for interest — was considered a sin in the ancient ages. Usually our modern commentary on this focuses on how the interest payments might be exorbitant, reflecting our own modern fears. But a darker vision lies beneath. Usury allows those who have little to…
