THE LIE of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

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.

THE ORIGINS OF PC

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.

The Ethics of the Presidency

A recent letter to The Wall Street Journal, FYI

to the Editor:

Yes, Ms Noonan, “we have to do better” (Alabama Teaches America a Lesson, Dec 16-17).  But are we doing so badly with a hopelessly bipolar government where the losers can’t accept the fact that Trump defeated both sides of The Establishment BY HIMSELF to win the Presidency (meaning that he was [s]elected by a populist electorate)? He still is fighting both parties while leading through a major crisis (North Korea) and trying to govern with virtually no help (none at all from Democrats).  The economy is booming as never before and legislation is limping forward.  Consider the alternative: Hillary would be more-of-the-same-Obama, a lagging economy and much less global respect.

Why can’t we run a government instead of threatening to shut it down?  The answer is our bipolarity: Democrats refuse to participate at all,

ETHICS, TRUTH, and GLOBAL WARMING

ETHICAL ISSUES:  GLOBAL WARMING

It’s natural…

Global warming is a fact.  Global cooling is a fact.  But global warming caused by man-made carbon dioxide is not a fact (a fact being absolute truth).  Earth’s conditions continue to change because of constant cosmological and geological functioning. The earth precesses (wobbles on its axis) and its poles shift.  Temperatures change.  Sunspots affect conditions on earth; recent studies show that the sun’s activity affects the formation of certain clouds (water vapor), which themselves affect climatic conditions.  Plate tectonics move entire continental masses, and sub-sea rifting and volcanoes affect ocean currents and temperatures world-wide.  Earth is not a static entity—it’s dynamic, constantly changing, and it’s big.   Conditions on earth and in its atmosphere change as well—they must.

PRESIDENT TRUMP FIGHTS BACK

AN ANONYMOUS CONTRIBUTION

I have no idea who wrote this about President Trump’s lack of decorum, dignity, and statesmanship.  It came to me via the internet through a friend.  It is presented here slightly edited and shortened:

ethics

Friends often ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”

We on the right have tried dignity.  There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.

We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?

We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?

And the results were always the same. This is because,

MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

DRAINING THE SWAMP:  Making America Great Again

We’re off! And the Trump Administration is gaining altitude as we speak.

wisdom speaks

Listen to the Man…

After considerable initial turbulence The Administration is on its promised way. Once the entire system is staffed and running, things will only improve. It’s clear that we have a President that means what he says, unlike many of his political forebears. Appointees in place are in command of their positions, and Trump is making good on his promises to Make America Great Again. Showing muscle in Syria has made a positive impression on most of the Free World, and the Mother Of All Bombs has impressed the proletariat elsewhere. Getting other nations on board should be easier now, and look for the economy to improve significantly over the next few months (and thenceforth…)

And the opposition has been quelled to some degree by the appointment of

THE REALITY of CLIMATE CHANGE

THE TRUTH ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE

global_warming_by_teabing1CLIMATE CHANGE IS A FACT. Temperatures are increasing and will continue to increase slowly in the immediate future.  Temperature rise will be minimal (perhaps 1 degree by 2020), accompanied by a slight rise in sea levels (nowhere near destructive) because of melting  (largely) arctic ice.  Floating ice already displaces 90-percent of its volume under water, so the increase in water volume due to melting will be limited to about 10-percent of the melted ice volume.  Antarctic ice is land-based, and its volume is increasing.

Currently Earth is in a (geologically well-documented) interglacial period, coming off a glacial period of the recent geologic past (10-12,000 years ago).  There have been, in fact, several prior glacial periods (and interglacial periods necessarily between); some have influenced mankind, and there’s no evidence that this pattern will not continue in the future.  Earth’s temperatures can be expected to vary in such a dynamic system, and they do. In other words, global warming is currently taking place as is its nature.
