Angina Monologue 23

October 21st, 2015 by Vader

His Majesty has been somewhat sullen at breakfast lately. Part of it was the widespread perception in the media that Cthulu did better than His Majesty in the last debate. Part of it was the season of the year: I think His Majesty suffers from a touch of SAD (Sith Affective Disorder), which flares up around this time of year, but usually passes around early January. And I figured part of it was that the Imperial tummy has been unhappy. For several days, His Majesty could hardly choke down his meals, which left him feeling bloated and suffering with heartburn for hours afterwards. He convinced himself that it was gastroparesis, which he knows has been making life miserable for a young friend of mine.

There is always a certain meanness in the argument of pure evil, joined with a certain superiority in its fact.

“Large families, large houses, traditional role models, and single incomes”

November 18th, 2014 by MC

Those words would be as good an answer as I could give to the question originally addressed to Conan the Barbarian: “What is best in life?”

But they’re actually taken from this passage: (more…)

Capitalism Coopts Central Planning

October 01st, 2014 by Man SL

Capitalism already has the ability to simulate patches of Communism inside the economy, at least insofar as many of the [central planning] advantages are concerned. These are called “corporations.”

How the LDS church makes money.

July 12th, 2012 by Bookslinger

I think it’s a good thing for the church to own income-producing assets. The Businessweek article attempts to paint some aspects of church finances and business interests as bad things, but I think it (the article) fails to do so. The things that the article points out, to which it points a finger and says “Ah ha!”, are actually good things in my opinion. (more…)
