When one person calls another person fat, that is bullying. When the government calls two thirds of America’s citizenry fat, we call that being ‘socially concerned.’ Who elected this government? We the people. If Kenneth Krause is a bully, so is the government, and so are all the people who told the government it was ‘ok’ to involve itself in every area of our lives. We are all bullies now.

In the decades leading up to one of the most horrific chapters in human history, the leading lights of the day openly discussed bringing about those horrors. Eugenics was posited as the rational position of all intelligent, well-meaning individuals.

Is it really the case that eugenics is dead and gone? I want you to consider an article that I recently read detailing the views of an ‘expert’ in practical ethics. [update, here is a link to the original essay. don’t know how long it will stay up.] The second paragraph reads: The expert in […]

I posted an essay referring to this essay by Abraham Lincoln so I thought I may as well post the whole thing somewhere.

Setting aside completely the moral or ethical issues that may compel someone to grant young illegal immigrants immunity, and even allow them to work in the US without hindrance, the approach that Obama has taken to bring it about is, to put it bluntly, the death rattle of the Republic. This article in the Politico […]
