I recently came across this video clip from a much longer discussion from June 2017. It's a discussion on threats to free speech.

Virtually none of the greatest geniuses on the planet today know absolutely anything about politics. And they are so profoundly ignorant that they entirely don't know that they don't know it.

Really, there's no narcissistic God complex to be seen here. Or, a complete lack of self-awareness on Bwook's part.

"Handel has for me an entirely fourth-rate significance, and he is not even entertaining."

Doubtless the throngs of people of all ages who packed the Michael Fowler Centre on Saturday night for the annual recycling of The Messiah would beg to differ with the mighty Tchaikovsky's brutal appraisal above.

Ayn Rand, Donald Trump and the 1972 Presidential Election

Grant Jones's picture
Submitted by Grant Jones on Tue, 2017-12-12 23:35

Ayn Rand wrote an insightful series of articles on the 1972 presidential election and its result. These articles were published in her periodical The Ayn Rand Letter. In order of publication, these articles are "The Dead End," "A Preview," "A Nation's Unity" and "The American Spirit." To my knowledge, none of these articles have been anthologized in the several posthumously published collections of Rand's articles.

Review: Pamela Geller, Fatwa: Hunted in America, 2017

Grant Jones's picture
Submitted by Grant Jones on Mon, 2017-12-11 01:40

On 3 May 2015 freeborn Americans held a "Draw Mohammed" contest and free-speech rally in Garland, Texas. The event was organized by Pamela Geller. It was her response to the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris and previous cartoon jihads. The event was attacked by two freelance jihadists with connections to ISIS. Fortunately, it was only the jihadists who died that day. Security was solid, despite the Obama FBI's refusal to notify event planners of their information regarding the planned attack. In response to this jihad attack on American soil, the media blamed the victims and poorly hid their disappointment that Geller wasn't killed.

In 1858, when Abraham Lincoln accepted the nomination to run against the Democrat Stephen Douglas for Illinois State Senator (a race which Lincoln lost), he gave his famous “House Divided” speech drawing on a biblical metaphor to illustrate the most pressing moral and economic issue facing his country at the time - black slavery.

Is There a Right to Immigrate?

The whole basis of the "right to immigrate" argument starts with a kind of out-of-context, rationalistic, assertion of individual rights from which its proponents proceed to deduce conclusions.

In C.S Lewis’ artful little book titled, The Screwtape Letters, Uncle Screwtape is the older, more experienced demon who advises in letter form his young, impetuous nephew, Wormwood, on the finer points of how to win “the patient’s” soul toward hell and our Father Below. Uncle Screwtape instructs Wormwood, “the safest road to hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts."
