    "Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so too." Voltaire in his Essay on Tolerance

    Fascism is a word that is thrown around without people even thinking about what it means. It started as an Italian word for a political group, and it derived from the Latin word ‘fasces’, which was the bundle of rod from which an axe protruded. Until Mussolini started using the term it could have been applied to any political ...

  2. American Orthodoxy

    by , 05-11-2017 at 04:55 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    Apparently the religious wars resulted in America orthodoxy splitting into several sects. I wonder whether it would be possible reconstitute the original, or if it would be better to take control of one sect and use it to conduct a war of annihilation against the other sects, or would it be better to take a more positive approach and simply spread one sect by taking over the other sects. One question that has not yet been answered is what the real American orthodoxy is.

    Even though it isn't a major issue in the news, there is a holy war going on. DAESH would like to be fighting against the princes of Christendom, as their ancestors did centuries ago, but there aren't any princes of Christendom anymore. The issues that DAESH is fighting about are not issues to more than a few people outside of their organization. Eight hundred or a thousand years ago religious power was a major concern, but in most of the world religion is a personal matter that is not part of governmental ...

  5. Political Cultures

    by , 01-09-2015 at 04:39 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    This morning I saw this video about Utah saving money and housing homeless people by simply giving the homeless apartments.
