No Rights If Not Self-Aware?

If self-awareness is necessary to confer rights upon individuals then rape would be legal provided that the woman was drugged beforehand. Ideas have consequences so think before you decide what makes people valuable.

Tyranny in the Nursery

Wherever is found what is called a paternal government, there is found state education.  It has been discovered that the best way to insure implicit obedience is to commence tyranny in the nursery.

Don’t Be A Coward

He who has truth on his side is a fool as well as a coward if he is afraid to own it because of other men’s opinions.

An Illiterate Culture

We are a people now illiterate in a way that is unprecedented for the human race. We can decipher linguistic signs on a page, but we have no songs and immemorial stories in our hearts. The pagan Germanic warrior could not read, and where were the books for it anyway? But he had centuries of song in his mind, and he well knew of that specially gifted man, the scop, who could sing by heart many thousands of verses about the old heroes and their adventures, and could even compose new songs of his own: wordum wrixlan, weaving patterns of words that were as intricate as the vermiculate embellishments upon the hilt of a warrior’s sword.

College "Education"

College education is less about the pursuit of truth and more about imparting a carefully guarded, often forcefully imposed narrative of economic socialism, political globalism, moral relativism, militant secularism, and personal meaning through hedonism.

Proper Education

To educate a person in the mind but not in morals is to educate a menace to society.

Building on Sand

Never, never pin your whole faith on any human being: not if he is the best and wisest in the whole world.  There are lots of nice things you can do with sand: but do not try building a house on it.

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity, chapter 7

Tyranny

There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want, merely because you think it would be good for him.

We CAN Control Our Thoughts

Judeo-Christian principles insist that people have the ability to control not only their actions but even their thoughts.  And that, therefore, people are (and must be) accountable for their actions and thoughts. ...  While the modernist, particularly in the field of art, may consider unfettered and undisciplined thought to be just one step removed from genius, the Bible directs us to rein in our minds.

How Revolutionaries Play Victim

It is well to note in connection with the crackdown of revolutionaries of the appearance of a tactic that has often been used since by Communists, their sympathizers and fellow-travelers.  It is the device of taking attention away from Communist methods and violence by focusing attention on real or imagined wrongs done by those who oppose them.  To put it more bluntly, it is the device of turning revolutionaries into the victims and the prosecutors into aggressors.  This is accomplished by downplaying the purposes and methods of revolutionaries and focusing upon the allegedly unsavory tactics of those who act to contain and restrain them. Revolutionaries are portrayed as innocent advocates of unpopular ideas, beset by heavy-handed Yahoos.
