3 Sentences: Better to Reveal & Resign

I get why the NYT did what it did and can pretty well condone its decision; but not so much the method of the writer (one or…

Recalling Joseph Heller, A "Catch-22" Insight for Our Era

"IT WAS MIRACULOUS.

IT WAS ALMOST NO TRICK AT ALL, HE SAW, TO TURN VICE INTO VIRTUE AND SLANDER INTO TRUTH, IMPOTENCE INTO ABSTINENCE, ARROGANCE INTO HUMILITY, PLUNDER INTO PHILANTHROPY, THIEVERY INTO HONOR, BLASPHEMY INTO WISDOM, BRUTALITY INTO PATRIOTISM, AND SADISM INTO JUSTICE.

ANYBODY COULD DO IT; IT REQUIRED NO BRAINS AT ALL.…

When the Church Will Ditch Celibacy



Even for such an exceedingly top-down organisation, I think the institution is too large, wide-spread, too personnel-entrenched, for any one leader to root out child-rape in anything like a thorough manner. Attempts must be made, of course. 

The core issue, I have held, is that the celibacy requirement, whatever benefits the Church believes may accrue from it, by its nature invites…

2 Sentences: The Ideal Citizen of Totalitarianism

THE IDEAL CITIZEN OF A TOTALITARIAN STATE IS NOT THE CONVINCED COMMUNIST OR COMMITTED NAZI.

THE IDEAL CITIZEN OF A TOTALITARIAN STATE IS THE PERSON FOR WHOM THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN TRUTH & FICTION NO LONGER EXISTS.

On Voting Green

Greens ought to run in every race it believes it matters.

It is too simplistic (and simple-minded) to lay the recent Ohio congressional vote, (and Trump's election, and Bush's 2000 win in Florida), at Green's door, let alone cast blame.

Knowing that there was a Green in the Ohio-18 congressional race, the DNC might have much…

1-Sentence: His Implosion

Because we keep steady, this president's happy end will come roughly unheralded by one or two singular, let alone seismic, notes, but rather will come as the under-anticipated collapse of the Kaiser's Western Front…
