Thought of the Day and Unrelated articles

Thought-

The only thing that Social Justice Warriors (SJW) and those on the active far left loathe more than an ignorant conservative is a well articulated and informed conservative.  A well articulated and informed conservative baffles the left because the left is taught to believe that there are none in existence.  When confronted with a conservative of this ilk the typical recourse of the left is to name-call and denigrate, which is not a change in strategy from when they interact with ignorant conservatives.

I would not consider most people part of the SJW or far left activist group. But I will say that most people in the western world are under the influence of this group and are unconsciously falling in line.

Something to Ponder on July 4th- Again

from last year:

Something to ponder on July 4th:
-Have opinions. Be able to defend your opinions. Do not expect everyone will agree with you. Do not call people names. Engage opinions of others that you find untrue and tell them why. Persuade and be persuaded. Do not agree for the sake of agreement. Do not go with the crowd because it is the popular thing to do (unless the crowd is right). Question your presuppositions and your post-suppositions. Stand for something bigger than yourself.

In order to perpetuate freedom of thought and expression and to honor those who do not have or have not had access to it, we are obligated to have this type of discourse in society.
