Vale atque Ave

In the beginning of our idyll, away from the Projects and concrete,

right in front of our new home with a lawn near a street still unpaved,

without curb or sidewalk, she planted a willow, and violets beneath.  more>>>

Dancing with Minguito
clear

by David P. Gontar (November 2015)


One of her earliest memories was of a tall, gaunt dama handing her a cup of tea. The flesh was taut, stretched over contorted fingers, and of a nauseating variety of pale hues. In retrospect there was no face, but in succession a grinning Catrina Calavera, then a negrito woman struggling in a noose, and finally a ravenous crow trying to peck out the girl’s eyes. When Teresita was six years old her aunt took her to meet La Chica Vaca, as Señora Villata had become known.  more>>>

The Delicious Irony of Irwin Schiff (1928-2015), R.I.P.
clear

by Richard Kostelanetz (November 2015)


In libertarian circles, Irwin Schiff will always be remembered as a Great American Tax Protestor who regarded federal income taxes as “unconstitutional,” sometimes declaring zero income, other times refusing to file any return. Additionally, he published and then self-published books exposing federal government waste and advocating tax avoidance, all in a great American tradition dating back into the 19th Century. The feds took their revenge by putting him in their slammers more than once.  more>>>

Leaving Hinduism to Embrace Equality
clear

by Ankur Betageri (November 2015)
 

One of the main sources of disharmony in Indian society is the eternal antagonism between the Brahminists and the Dalits. The Brahminist (defined as anyone who subscribes to and derives his social status from the varna hierarchy) is compelled to undermine the respect of the Dalit (defined as anyone who is negatively affected by the varna hierarchy) and the Dalit is also compelled to undermine the respect of the Brahminist. But why is it like this? Why should they quarrel constantly without ever winning or losing the fight? Why is there this tension in the Indian society?  more>>>

In Defense of Ben Carson’s Remarks on the Holocaust

by Norman Berdichevsky (November 2015)


In a statement to the public on October 10, Israel Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon urged all civilians with license to carry firearms to arm themselves so as to prevent attacks by Palestinians. In an interview with Channel 2, Ya'alon said: "We are in the midst of a wave of terrorism in which civilians have become the front, and there is supreme importance for the public to be ready and aware." In so doing, he was reaffirming what prominent politicians, statesmen and philosophers, who are regarded as heroes and icons by the political left, have reiterated many times.  more>>>

Why Christians Must Never be Pacifists in the Face of Evil
by Norman Berdichevsky
(November 2015)


Kaj Munk, a Danish cleric, identified as a rightwing political and cultural figure in the Denmark of the 1930s, became the center of moral and intellectual resistance to the Nazi occupation. He was murdered by the Gestapo and Danish traitors in January 1944 as an attempt to silence the growing resistance on the part of ordinary Danish citizens who found in their church a source of moral strength to resolutely oppose the evils of the Nazis.  more>>>

Jean Baudrillard vs. America?
clear

by Paul Austin Murphy (November 2015)


Jean Baudrillard was a well-known French philosopher and sociologist. He died in 2007.

Baudrillard, along with Jean-François Lyotard, more or less invented postmodernism – or at least provided its theoretical underpinnings. Baudrillard also said (amongst other things) that “[r]eality itself is too obvious to be true” and that “truth does not exist” [in Fragments: Cool Memories III].  more>>>

Depend upon it, Sir,’ said Doctor Johnson, ‘when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.’ Actually, it concentrates more than just his mind: it concentrates his character, especially if he is innocent, as the vast majority of people executed in the twentieth century were.  more>>>
