Kokesh the Krooked Kointelpro Kon

Listen after 12:45. The interviewer brings up the possibility (=reality) Kokesh is a paid provocateur leading gullible gun owners to slaughter. To this charge Kokesh can only answer: “If that were the case I would hope I was being paid better.” Is this the type of response an honest person would give to such a charge? And, since he admits, here, to being paid, who is paying Kokesh, and why? Enquiring minds want to know… Continue reading

The DSM – Psychology and Psychiatry’s Subjective Sinking Ship

“Unlike our definitions of ischemic heart disease, lymphoma, or AIDS, the DSM diagnoses are based on a consensus about clusters of clinical symptoms, not any objective laboratory measure. In the rest of medicine, this would be equivalent to creating diagnostic systems based on the nature of chest pain or the quality of fever. Indeed, symptom-based diagnosis, once common in other areas of medicine, has been largely replaced in the past half century as we have understood that symptoms alone rarely indicate the best choice of treatment.” Continue reading

Neil Postman, Technopoly, and Amusing Ourselves to Death

“The Technopoly story is without a moral center. It puts in its place efficiency, interest, and economic advance. It promises heaven on earth through the conveniences of technological progress. It casts aside all traditional narratives and symbols that suggest stability and orderliness, and tells, instead, of a life of skills, technical expertise, and the ecstasy of consumption.” ~ Neil Postman, “Technopoly” Continue reading

Suffering, in the plan of eternal Love, has a redemptive character

If the world were a random place to live in, then earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, etc could occur anywhere anytime, but they don’t. These occur in places and at times that follow a somewhat regular and orderly pattern as to time and place. If we choose to live in San Francisco, we know we risk being buried alive in an earthquake… if we choose to live in Oklahoma, we know we run the risk we run of being buried alive in a tornado… if we choose to live in Chicago, we know the risk we run of being shot… etc… Continue reading

The De-Christianization of Western Civilization?

Professor Benjamin Wiker argues that many peoples today are seeking to establish secularism as the official religion for the U.S. In fact, he says they are organizing the complete “de-Christianization” of Western Civilization, and plan to replace personal faith with the collective dependence on our federal government… Continue reading

The seven deadly sins

The Contrary Virtues were derived from the Psychomachia (“Battle for the Soul”), an epic poem written by Prudentius (c. 410). Practicing these virtues is alledged to protect one against temptation toward the Seven Deadly Sins: humility against pride, kindness against envy, abstinence against gluttony, chastity against lust, patience against anger, liberality against greed, and diligence against sloth.
