Meet Your Northern Neighbors

Query

If we are supposed to feel sorry for the poor and low-class, why would we choose to support government policies that perpetuate their lame social and economic status by depriving them of the understanding that they can work themselves up?

I suppose it has something to do with the fact that they are classified as victims. And victims of course have nothing at all to do with what happens to them, it is pure chance.

Moderation

Moderation in temper is always a virtue, but moderation in principle is always a vise.

Firepower Saturday

How do you beat this kind of overwhelming firepower? With overwhelming manpower, as was done on the beaches of Normandy.

Finding One’s Self

Ever hear or know anyone who had to find themself?

What a bunch of baloney. Why do they need to find themselves? Invariably because they don’t know who they are? But if you don’t know who you are how will you know what you are trying to find? You won’t.

Surely they’ll claim they’ll know it when they find it. But they won’t know it. They’ll simply have bounced around enough and had their point of view molded enough that when they get to that point it feels satisfying enough. With the right amount of an open-mind and integration of ideas they could be anything. It’s nothing more than the convenience of being at a certain point when they finally are willing to make a claim. “I’ve always been a juggling circus acrobat, I just never knew it”.
