you know you're probably going to end up making the recipient mad at you, to
say something nice about them at the beginning. Often it's something perfunctory
and meaningless, but, as we all know, the Forms Must Be Obeyed.

I've stated in at least one previous article that tyranny
leads to arrogance and stupidity. As tyrants exercise and become used to power

power. Consider Speaker Pelosi's recent performance.
by Sean Gangol
One of the biggest problems in society is the double standards
that surround issues dealing with minorities. Most people seem to be afraid of
discussing this issue due to political correctness. They are afraid that people
may think they are racist. Personally I could care less about political

ill will towards any minority. The one thing I can not tolerate is a double standard.

by Jim Davidson

Why did the market crash? Pundits claimed because the bill failed.
Morality v Moralism
by A.X. Perez

is that which some people practices in their own life to achieve freedom.
Moralism is what some people try to impose on others to enslave them.
