Our current immigration policy is unethical.

Truth has no agenda

…believe it…

Our immigration system is structured to grant citizenship (or residency) status based on family reunification, needed work skills, or capital investment. It also covers refugees and those seeking asylum based on political persecution and provides as well a lottery for people who have less pressing immigration needs. The procedure for gaining legal immigrant status differs with, among other factors, the path a potential immigrant is eligible to pursue based on employment, education, or family situation. U.S. immigration laws also cover entry into the country for almost any other purpose, including temporary stays beyond a certain length of time.

The first thing to do is to control our borders and enforce current immigration laws

Immigration law is open to interpretation; however, it does provide enough qualifying criteria to be valuable. For instance, not every relative is eligible, and some spouses and children



The study of ethics goes back at least to the birth of philosophy some 2500 years ago, with Socrates positing that ethical truth was not only rational but demonstrably absolute.  Plato expanded on this thought, and since then countless philosophers have put in their two cents worth with no visible damage to Socrates’s original conjecture.  Aristotle’s subsequent metaphysics defined ethics as “virtue as a means to happiness,” opening the door to scholastic conflict and beginning a long history of questioning just what is meant by happiness (and virtue, for that matter).  Truth, however, remains sacrosanct despite all assaults (and opinions).


There’s nothing mysterious about it…

The rapid proliferation of newspapers, journals and literary salons in the 18th Century caused an explosion in mass communication that encouraged public venues where ideas, political and otherwise, could be discussed, developed and



“Mind is the complex of cognitive faculties that enables consciousness, thinking, reasoning, perception, feeling and judgment…”  So says Wikipedia, the Free Encyclopedia.  Notice that the term is mind, not the mind.  Mind is not a physical thing, but instead a metaphysical ‘complex of faculties’ (abilities, capacities), a function of the brain and nervous system (things of substance).  While mind is not material, it still is. Without it we would be not.

Your mind is yours alone, working within your individual self.  It processes information that comes from without as well as what it itself generates, combining real and imagined data, random associations, unique experiences and every other input seen or unseen, heard or unheard, touched or untouched, smelled or unsmelled, tasted or not, to create an increasingly unique (metaphysical) structure. The process doesn’t follow a direct



Some of you may wonder what philosophers do. I can’t speak for others, but I’ll tell you what I do:  Mostly I try to solve the world’s problems by thinking about them in different ways.


…What it’s all about

And we have a problem so massive and overpowering that many of us don’t even see it. It affects so many people and institutions so deeply that untold millions of us think that it’s the way things are.  We assume it as a necessary part of life, and live on a daily basis without even thinking about it.  Perhaps it’s even the way it should be.  But I don’t think so, and I think that you might agree.

Let me ask you something: How do you deal with someone you can’t trust?  Oh, I suppose you can on


PC: A Progressive Pathology

9c2353addbb6d43329e3ec28db3294d6_9781627874267PC didn’t just happen…IT’S GOING ACCORDING TO PLAN.

Political Correctness (PC) seemed to be merely an annoyance to those of us comfortable with the truth; we assumed that honesty would eventually prevail over its obvious fiction.  Well, we were wrong.  We failed to appreciate the virulence and potential impact of the Progressive movement—only 15% of the population. The ‘right’ to not be offended has become their trump card.  PC has become the new norm, and we hardly notice it.


PC may have been an issue in China 2500-years ago.  Confucius observed that the first thing to do to restore a state to health was to call things by their right names rather than use understatement to distort the truth…

…but the foundations of modern Political Correctness are found in Critical Theory, an early-1900s product of Germany’s Institute for Social Research (The Frankfurt School).   Based on Marxist conjecture and underlying thesis that “all history is about which groups have power over which other groups,” its goal was to combine social theory, philosophy, economics and cultural criticism to delegitimize reason in favor of emotion and eliminate the distinction between the individual and the group.  It was a deliberate attempt to promote and spread Communism, nothing less.

ETHICS 102 – The WHY of Ethics

ETHICS IS: The sum of all fundamentals affecting right conduct in every case at all times.  


…What it’s all about

Ethicsa universal personal attribute, defines what is right, good and true.  It requires nothing other than yourself to approve or apply.  It’s an integral part of you that applies to the whole of humanity—in fact to Earth and the entire Universe—not just to you or any particular group.

Ethics, founded in truth, a First Principle, is also right and good.  And this is where the whole of humanity comes in because while truth is a given, good and right are not; therefore, the terms require clarification. 

But first, to put ethics in perspective, it is first necessary to define its foundation, TRUTH.  But therein lies a problem:  Fundamentals (like truth) cannot be perfectly defined. They must remain at
