Hate

Embarrassed. That’s how I felt awhile back when I came across the ADL’s (Anti-Defamation League) so-called ‘Pyramid of Hate.’  How could an organization focused on preventing genocide fail to understand how genocides occur, and, with disturbing irony, in particular the genocide against the Jews under the Nazis?  Since they were not ashamed at their ignorance, […]

Missing the Point on Bill Nye

Judging from my Facebook home feed, Bill Nye has (once again) said some things monumentally stupid. As I scanned the episodes in his Netflix series “Bill Nye Saves the World,” I was reminded of Joel Achenbach’s March, 2015, National Geographic article titled, “Why Do Many Reasonable People Doubt Science?” Achenbach says something very revealing about […]

The Coming Nightmare of the Trump Presidency

This is one of the least pleasant pieces I have ever sat down to write.  I am forcing myself to do it.   I feel the warning must be issued, although my sense is that those who would heed it, need it least. Many people are encouraged by the election of Donald J. Trump.  To them, […]

“After the Ball” Reflections: Actually, homosexuality IS a Choice?!?!?!?

I’ve been spending a fair bit of time acquiring and analyzing books that advocate for manipulating people.  Not, as you might be thinking, so I can manipulate people, but because I find manipulation to be disgusting, vile behavior.  It is prima facie evidence of that the manipulator is a bad actor.  Bad actors should be […]
