The Crisis of Love in America

There’s a song that came out back in the 1980s. Maybe some of you remember it, but most of you have probably never heard of it—or of the man who sang it. (He is still alive, so perhaps I should say “sings” it.) The title of the song is “Love Is Not a Feeling.” I grew up listening to this song, and it continues to influence me.

Donna Brazile admits she passed debate questions to Hillary, blames Russians

Donna Brazile, folks:

“By stealing all the DNC’s emails and then selectively releasing those few,” she explained, “the Russians made it look like I was in the tank for Secretary Clinton. Despite the strong, public support I received from top Sanders campaign aides in the wake of those leaks, the media narrative played out just as the Russians had hoped, leaving Sanders supporters understandably angry and sowing division in our ranks.”

I did something wrong because I wanted to but now I’m going to blame someone else who actually had nothing to do with my wrongdoing but is an easy scapegoat because, well, Russia. I mean, c’mon, we all know they don’t like gays in Russia, right? You know that, don’t you? And if they don’t like gays, just imagine what else they’re capable of. If they only liked gays we wouldn’t have to be so hard on them. It’s their own fault, really. And it’s their fault anyone found out about me sending debate questions to Hillary. See how terrible they are? See how not liking gays leads to bad things? If Russia only liked gays, no one ever would have found out I sent debate questions to Hillary.

The obvious question is merely one of consistent application of principles, which unfortunately, most in the politically correct camp do not seem to have beyond their underlying religious principle: if it is politically correct, we hold these things to be self-evident.

Could cannibalism be ‘perfectly natural’? This scientist thinks so.

Although cannibalism is often depicted as aberrant behavior, Schutt found that it occurs all the time in the natural world. We humans have also long made a habit of consuming our own—Renaissance Europeans drank human blood as medicine; Pacific Islander communities ate the flesh of deceased relatives as a gesture of grief. Schutt even tried a taste of a human organ (don’t worry, no people were harmed in the making of this book).

Oh, I wish I had the time to break this article down fully. There are so many problems with this, so many logical inevitabilities, which I’m sure the author of the book (Schutt) would deny, but which will inevitably develop, anyway, for anyone who adopts the principles he is espousing. Human cannibalism became taboo in the Western world for a reason, and it should remain taboo.
