Another slight difficulty with Obamacare

January 04th, 2014 by Vader

Adding a new baby is next to impossible.

I’d be a bit old to be having any more children, even if it was still physically possible for me. (The incident on Mustafa did an awful lot of damage.) But this has got to be yet another real downer for Adam and many others.

Senator Mike Lee’s Speech on Conservatism for Our Time

October 29th, 2013 by G.

Rockwell TownhallOne of the mainstays of conservatism is that history has happened and men are flawed. This means that, unlike some destructive varieties of liberalism and progressivism, we cannot believe that people are naturally good and can achieve utopia if we just sweep a few kulaks and wreckers under the rug. It also means that, unlike reactionaries, we cannot believe that there was some time period when institutions and mores were naturally good and we just need to reestablish that time. The reason we are no longer in that time period is because it contained the seeds of its own destruction. And we can’t just wish ourselves back into that time period anyhow, because history has happened, the conditions that made that society possible no longer exist, and we must deal with the contemporary materials that are at hand.

We are Literally a Sterile Civilization

October 21st, 2013 by G.

Mead:

Americans are having so few babies that the demographic transition is wrecking the federal budget and our social safety net, and we aren’t taking particularly good care of the ones that we have.

This can only be seen as a spectacular, and spectacularly dangerous social failure. It is a catastrophe of historic proportions, but we are reacting to it with a mix of learned helplessness and willed ignorance.

Mike Lee’s Dangerous Idea

September 17th, 2013 by Bartleby

To the crazed notion that parents shouldn’t pay through the nose to raise kids to bear the burden of other people’s retirement, Senator Lee adds the even more ridiculous notion that the tax code should be simplified. I prefer not to imagine what strange hallucinogens must be added to the water in Utah.

“It’s a trap”

August 29th, 2013 by Vader

Occupy Wall Street as a dispute over primogeniture.

The Jedi tried to avoid the problem through celibacy, as did the Roman Church.
