Thoughts Of The Day

It's easy to refute someone when they insist on being wrong.  All one has to do is tell the truth.  But someone can't refute anyone when they insist on being right.  That's why advocates of tyranny always advocate censorship.  Free speech is a moral necessity.  Those who declare free speech is hate speech and must be banned are Enemies of Mankind and must be dealt with as such, in the Nuremberg style, from the neck until dead.  The one word that tyrants, and those who seek to become tyrants, don't want to hear is the word "NO."  Even to suggest that a person has the right to say NO is the equivalent of speaking a death sentence to tyrants and wanna-be tyrants.  What is censorship?  It's the forcible prevention of the transmission of information.  In the context of an adversarial situation, such as the invasion of a Free Nation by a Socialist State, the act of censorship is morally mandatory.  Such an invader has no more right to information about the defending forces than a biker gang has to the location of your wife or daughters.  In the context of a civil society, valid information concerning those holding or seeking public office and their goals and beliefs, is necessary in order for members of the electorate to make a valid decision when they exercise their authority.  To vote correctly, the voter needs to know the truth about office seekers and their beliefs and personal conduct.  Those who must suppress the transmission of valid information, such as corrupt office holders who are acting through their lieutenants, or through the local campus communist goon squad, are harmful to the individual citizens and the political community as a whole.  Those who attempt to practice censorship in a civil society are enemies of that society and must be identified and dealt with as such.  The use of certain words is unavoidable when you write bad characters.

I think censorship should be a capital crime, but that's my opinion.  Power is death.

Those who proudly served Nicaraguan coffee when the country was under communist rule (when the coffee was grown by slave labor) seriously believed themselves to be superior people, so do the members of the Klan, the members of the NSDAP, and the members of Anti-fa.

If history has taught us anything it is that those who imagine themselves to be infallible will fail.  And those who imagine themselves incapable of evil will do evil.  If you're just following orders then your life doesn't matter to your actual fellow citizens.  They leap at the chance to rob and murder and then complain that they are treated as robbers and murderers.  They refuse to apologize for their actions but demand that we apologize for ours.

"Fascist", or "Fascism"  are convenient labels for what speaker dislikes. 

From my perspective as a veteran combat rifleman it is very clear that the perpetrator of the shooting incident at LAX lacked the knowledge necessary to effectively use the weapon. It is as if he held the Marxist view that the mere possession of the instrument was sufficient to make effective use of it. The fact is that a trained rifleman using an AR-15 type rifle (FEH!) with a single thirty round magazine and iron sights should have been able to inflict at least twenty casualties.  To continue this criticism in detail would effectively provide a guide for future assailants and thus would be immoral.  The point is that knowledge matters. And that ignorance is NOT strength.
