The Specter of Suffering

SpecterSuffering Jews know how to suffer. Christians don’t, although they once did. Most libertarians don’t know how to suffer either. While there’s no virtue in suffering itself, certain kinds of suffering are unavoidable if we want to change the world. (That is, to really change the world, not just to jabber about it.) If you run away from suffering, anyone with a pin and a threat owns you. Let’s be clear …

The 7 Choices Left to the Military-Industrial Complex

militaryindustrialcomplex Since 2002 the US government has presided over one of the most dramatic financial bubbles of all time: the bubble of the military-industrial complex.

Some think that certain groups of politicians will pull it together and …

Will Government Tyranny Be Completed Before Humanity Wakes Up Again?

Eventually humans get tired with the permanent suspension of thought. I know …
