Against Compulsory Vaccination

I have spoken on this topic before, most recently re: the coronavirus (here) and more extensively here.  From that latter post, I’d just like to remind the reader of the words of Supreme Court Chief Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes:

“The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the Fallopian tubes. Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in the 1927 decision, Buck vs. Bell

Holmes was quite correct.  Now, compulsory sterilization was finally considered to be grotesque, repealed state by state until they were all … continue reading...

Can our Liberties Survive the Coronavirus? Compulsory vaccination, etc.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a ‘think piece’ describing how things like the coronavirus illustrate why I am a ‘nationalist.’  You could sum it up basically as this:  a proper role of the government is to serve its own people first and primarily.

The fatal flaw of globalists is that they are perfectly happy to see their own citizens suffer as long as the globalist can thump his chest about how ‘compassionate’ he is.  The more reasonable route does not strike me as controversial… you know, how about protecting the interests of your own citizens and then provide … continue reading...

On Excrement and ‘Civility’

There is an interesting data set out there which shows that the ‘liberals’ have lurched hard to the left since the 1990’s, whereas ‘conservatives’ have remained about the same.  This information comes from Pew Research and is material they’ve been tracking for a long time.  Here is an article about it, and below is the associated graph which visually tells the story.

Certainly, the median among ‘conservatives’ has moved to the right–but only so slightly.  The ‘liberals’, on the other hand, are moving rapidly to the left so fast and far that they may fall off the chart altogether … continue reading...

The Inhumanity of Being Animals

The intended audience of this post is Christians, and anyone else interested in aligning their viewpoints to reality.   I know it is long, but if you’re going to comment, I insist you read it all before you do.

From the transcript of the Scopes Monkey Trial, pg 208:

[Clarence Darrow quizzing one of the students in Scopes’ classroom]

Q — Now, Howard, what do you mean by classify?
A— Well, it means classify these animals we mentioned, that men were just the same as them, in other words—
Q— He didn’t say a cat was the same as a … continue reading...

So This Is What It Feels Like: Millions in Camps in China; the World Does Nothing

I study genocides.

When I say I ‘study’ them, I don’t mean I wait for the NYT or WAPO to take an interest in something before I imbibe the content of their headline as the exclusive content of my views.  I read books–lots of them.  I watch documentaries, when I think I can get something from them a book can’t get me.  I have even helped facilitate the release of previously unavailable or hard to find primary source material such as the Bahutu Manifesto [Rwandan genocide], The Memoirs of Naim Bey [Armenian genocide], and Allowing the Destruction of Life Unworthy continue reading...

Sometimes Trump Should Just Shut the Hell Up

I suppose we’ve all had the experience of standing in line at a fast food place waiting for the guy in front of us to place his order.  And waiting.  And waiting.  He seems to invent reasons to take long with his order.  In the meantime, there are 20 people stacked behind him, and he is behaving as though he were the only person in line.  He’s also the guy going 35 in a 55 MPH.

I have found myself as irritated as the next guy when this happens, but I have a personal policy:  when the person in question … continue reading...

Trump’s War on the Media Explained

It will be hard for my readers to believe, but for more than half my life, I was effectively a liberal.  Except on the issue of abortion, I more than leaned to the left.  I once seriously advocated for confiscation of all guns as well as legislative re-distribution of wealth.  I was sympathetic to unions until around 1995, and even walked a picket line in 92.  There were a variety of factors that pushed me away from liberalism:  the fall out of the strike I just referred to, the Bill Clinton experience, and 9-11.  Some others, but you get the … continue reading...
