Publisher’s Note: So Trump is the nominee, I had my money on Cthulhu in a just universe but Trump will do. This is the same government supremacist party that nominates such worthies as Dole, McCain and Romney and elects Democrat analogs like the Busheviks. If it destroys the GOP, the party had a good run for hundred and fifty years helping to create the largest government the planet has ever had the misfortune of hosting.
I am still convinced that Bernie Sander is every one of these scoundrels on truth serum, they just don’t have the stones of that totalitarian gasbag.
Moving and unpacking continues apace along with all the attendant relocation time distractions that interrupt normal life. I am hoping to be done in the next thirty days so I can get back to a more frequent writing schedule. –BB
The difference between males and men is accountability, responsibility and honor. The latter is possessed of these qualities while the former flees from it. Like all complex problems, a number of vectors inform the root causes and consequences.
Men tend to take their responsibilities and accountability pretty seriously even to the point of a moral hazard that forces them into failure. Consequences aren’t always good but honor should always be intact.
One of the frequent questions I am asked in speeches and interviews is the cosmic question of what is to be done as if a shooting war or revolution will set everything right for which the historical precedent process the opposite. The few humans who accept abolition as the right philosophical perspective with their fellow man are often expected to give some sage wisdom that strikes the sword to dash the Gordian knot that is the ubiquitous human chattel system called politics.
It all begins at the atomistic level and if you have children and they attend a government school, you have failed fundamentally. I realize that convenience and the conventional wisdom informs so many of these decisions but a cursory examination of first principles would reveal that statist reeducation camps are the mainstay of creating and sustaining the global gulag systems that go by other names whether towns, counties states or nations.
Here in Arizona, we have yet another initiative on the ballot for dolts dim enough to believe the government-media complex drumbeat to give more money to these wretched school systems that miraculously turn formerly human individuals into brain-deadened chattel with the critical thinking skills of a cactus and political followership traits that would put a smile even on the dour Josef Stalin. I find that conservatives are just as bad as liberals in thinking that government is the best and brightest for delivering the most fundamental services.
Imagine if you will that in the 1930s, RedDR had considered food so important, he nationalized all food production from farm to grocer. Fast forward to today and one is buying rotting and diminished quantities of food from the local Venezuela Vittles or Collectivist Co-op government grocery store staffed by DMV trained customer service representatives after you’ve waited in lines for three hours for a stale loaf of bread, cat/dog food and birdseed (to attract the extra meat staple to augment your ration card losses).
A wet dream for Bernie Sanders.
Again, first principles.
The empirical history of state-run schooling is a direct relationship to more dollars equating to an even greater instupidation of the students and the increasingly intellectual imbecility of the esteemed teacher caste. The moral case would demonstrate to most thinking parents that surrendering their progeny to the care of a government facility for most of the child’s waking hours staffed by union-led dimwits in the classroom would alarm even the most jaded and lazy mothers and fathers. No government school ever in North America has improved scholarship and erudition with more money pumped into the abyss.
