Four Facts for Human Achievement Day
July 20 is the anniversary of one of humanity’s greatest accomplishments, the first lunar landing. We should not only give a shout out to the thousands of people who made it possible for Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to walk the surface of another world. We should each celebrate this date as Human Achievement Day, to acknowledge all achievements, especially our own.

People are important. In the Game of Life, your fellow man really counts. The simple reality is: other human beings are pivotal, and almost central, to the quality of your life.

There are two types of people in the world: those who worship Gustav Mahler and those who do not. For those who do, Mahler's music is a religious experience.

(Particular thanks to Sam Pierson for doing all the "fiddly stuff"—to which I am allergic and at which I'm comprehensively incompetent—getting the book Kindle-ready! Sir Sam, you're a champ!!)
Newly updated, The One Tenor is a labor of love for life-long Mario Lanza devotee, New Zealand radio and television broadcaster Lindsay Perigo. It's the bringing together of his best Lanza-related essays, critiques and interviews over the years, with significant new material exclusive to this book, including Perigo's take on the theory that Mario Lanza suffered from Bipolar Disorder.

Or will they celebrate that we were energized to restore the republic?

The ideology of socialism can warp your mind. It makes you capable of virtually any atrocity. And, to a large extent, so too the worldwide and universal ideology of welfare statism. Here are some quotes from socialist Mao Tse-tung, who killed about 60 million:

This essay, “Capitalist Planning and Socialist Chaos,” shows that capitalism has all-pervasive but unrecognized economic planning. The separate, individual plans of all of its hundreds of millions, indeed, billions of individual participants, are harmonized, coordinated, and integrated by the price system and profit motive. Socialism, in contrast, is a chaotic “anarchy of production,” made that way by the stupendously ignorant and arrogant attempt to monopolize economic planning by a handful of government officials who prohibit economic planning by everyone else.

"Tenor is not a voice; it is a disease!" harrumphs a woman who just happens to be a soprano, in the 1951 Hollywood bio-pic The Great Caruso. The movie featured one spectacular carrier of the "disease" playing another, and spawned veritable epidemics of it, most notably in the forms of Pavarotti, Domingo and Carreras. And it didn't stop there:

Here are the latest doings of the savage superstitionists who rule Saudi Arabia. It is this variant of Islamofilth that we are allied with against another called ISIS. The hell with all of them. Leave them to behead, stone, incinerate or otherwise slaughter each other, as they are so ferally intent on doing. No human should be required to lay down his life for sub-humans.

Bosch Fawstin, who graced the pages of SOLO during the embryonic stages of his campaign against Islamotrash, was the winner of the Draw Mohammed Competition in Garland, Texas, organised by the beyond-courageous Pamela Geller, where ISIS scum tried to shoot attendees but got themselves shot instead. A most edifying outcome. Pamela and Bosch are now the object of death threats from the scum.

Baltimore Riots as Criminal Culture Writ Large
April 30, 2015 -- The rioting in Baltimore represents criminal culture writ large. It is what happens every day on a smaller scale in poor minority communities: theft, vandalism, and violence.
The flames in Baltimore hideously illuminate the fact that the culture of the welfare state creates the criminals and rioters that plague this city in my native state.

How Anti-Individualist Fallacies Prevent Us from Curing Death
April 22, 2015 – Excited about Silicon Valley entrepreneurs investing billions of dollars to extend life and even “cure” death? It's amazing that such technologically challenging goals have gone from sci-fi fantasies to fantastic possibilities. But the biggest obstacles to life extension could be cultural: the anti-individualist fallacies arrayed against this goal.

FREEDOM OF OPPORTUNITY NOT EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY
This essay shows that the goal of equality of opportunity is both absurd and vicious. Achieving it would require that children all be raised in the same environment and have the same genetic inheritance. In contrast, the essay shows that what we should actually strive for is the freedom of opportunity.

Last night I watched Killing Jesus on the National Geographic Channel.
That is, I watched as much as I could stomach. It occurred to me that if I really wanted that sort of thing I should pop along to the nearest BDSM club, where the activities depicted in the movie have the status they should have—something for consenting adults in private, not to be broadcast on public television where they could frighten children and the horses.
