Fighting against the Grand Globalist's Evil Empire online, and standing against the Vestigial Dinosaur Media's (VDM) Orwellian spin in the Great Culture Wars. Too much fun!

As actor Liam Neeson said in the movie "Michael Collins", "I hate them for making hate necessary." Some folks just think they're smarter than everybody else, a higher form of life than everybody else. So, instead of engaging in good faith discussions about specific ideas, they simply resort to deception, sophistry, unspecificity, undefined terms, manipulation, name calling, ad hominem, demonization and the politics of personal destruction AS A MATTER OF PREFERRED STRATEGY to get their little spoiled-brat control-freak way. Such behavior is anathema to intellectual honesty, an open mind, a kind heart, free inquiry, the freedoms of thought and speech, and the free flow of information. It MUST be eternally warred against if humankind is to entertain a realistic hope of ever reaching its full spiritual and intellectual potential.

THE "SECULAR" VERSION: As Samwise Gamgee said in JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy, "There is some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for". I agree. Hence this website and its sworn Jeffersonian oath of "eternal enmity against every form of tyranny over the mind of man".

THE "RELIGIOUS" VERSION: "But test and prove all things [until you can recognize] what is good; [to that] hold fast." (1Th 5:21)

To any individual who wants to be a good neighbor and/or openly engage in intellectually honest discussion of ideas interesting and relevant to human beings, I willingly, even eagerly, extend a "nice guy" hand of friendship. But to those dangerous wannabe-clever tyrant-minded manipulators, such as various scumbag politicians, race hustlers, gender hustlers, and "gay marriage" hustlers (they know who they are) who love to begin their one-sided intellectually dishonest sophist dialogs with such poisonous garbage as, "Give me your money, Whitey/Misogynist/Homophobe, (take your pick) or you're a racist/misogynist/homophobic (take your pick) 'hater'. And if you disagree with me that steal-and-redistribute collectivism and socialism are good ideas, you're a racist/misogynist/homophobic (take your pick) 'hater'. Now what was it you wanted to have a 'meaningful' conversation about, Whitey/Misogynist/Homophobe (take your pick)?" I say: "Go right straight to hell, Philistine, without passing 'Go' and without collecting $200!" (Apologies to the popular Parker Brothers game of "Monopoly"!)
