I AM old enough to know there is evil in the world…

by Skip May 15, 2014

And I am old enough to have seen Evil and experienced it.  First, there are those that only know naked force that they would use against me, my family, my friends, and my property: And then there are those that relish using naked political force, through the stroke of a pen, that can wreak even more […]

From Prager University In our universities, newspapers, and television shows, it is a given that external forces are the cause of crime. If not for poverty, murder and rape would be much lower. If not for racism, America’s inner cities would be far wealthier. So on and so on. At the core of this belief […]

“Socialism: it just hasn’t been implemented by the right set of people – yet”

by Skip November 6, 2013

Certainly not in the late Chavez’s Venezuela – last time it was foreign currency black markets, rotting food on the docks, and toilet paper hording.  Socialism – the promise of a Utopia for Everyone!  I guess that 130 years, in lots of countries world-wide, not ONE set of folks has gotten it right yet!  Small […]

Prager University Today, it’s common to call acts of evil–whether of a criminal or of a tyrannical dictator–”irrational” or “mad.” Why? Sometimes, behaving cruelly is a matter of self-interest.

The tolerance of cultural Marxism in the Academy? Does not go far, it seems

by Skip May 22, 2013

Institutions of higher learning, at least when I was there 30 40 years ago, they were hotbeds of discourse, ideas, and ideologies.  You had a stand – you took it, you said it, and you defended it.  Others did the same.  At the time, even if they didn’t listen, they at least gave you the […]

Small Government best protects the Peoples’ Liberties

by Don April 2, 2013

I was happy to see, in his letter of March 26th (http://issuu.com/dailysun/docs/lds3-26-13), that Johan Andersen agrees with the historic and current conservative position that humans can be evil and corruptible.  I wonder if he understands the implications of his position. Our Founding Fathers struggled to create a government that protected peoples’ liberties.  Their focus wasn’t […]

Sadness – of many things

by Skip December 14, 2012

As I remarked to TMEW as we went out for a quick bite to eat “This is not a problem with guns.  This is a problem with morality and culture if everything we are hearing is true”. And we have to remember – we don’t know all the details.  We do know that Adam Lanza […]
