The Fruit of Forgotten Meditations
--Liberty is the right to be different; equality is a ban on being different.
And how. But how do they sell the latter? Easy:
--To corrupt the individual it suffices to teach him to call his personal desires rights and the rights of others abuses.
This results in a new race of humans: a race to the bottom, comprised of
--individuals dissatisfied with what they have and satisfied with what they are.
But linguistic sleight of hand comes to the rescue, so
--“Social justice” is the term used to claim anything to which we do not have a right, while “Raising awareness” is the modest version of indoctrination.
As a result,
--Each day we demand more from society so that we can demand less from ourselves.
This appeasement of envy only ends in frustration, since
--Man would not feel so unfortunate if it were enough for him to desire without pretending to have a right to what he desires.
In any event,
--A man is called a liberal if he does not understand that he is sacrificing liberty except when it is too late to save it.
Which is why
--Wise politics is the art of invigorating society and weakening the State.
For in the final analysis,
--It is not to realize his dreams for which man can strive, but to appear worthy of their realization.
Now, our first principles are the opposite of the left's, in that we believe
--The permanent possibility of initiating causal series is what we call a person.
In other words, man is a subject with dignity, not a mere object to be manipulated by third parties who know better how to run our lives. The whole catastrophe is rooted in an absurd metaphysic, whereby
--Modern man treats the universe like a lunatic treats an idiot.
--Nothing makes clearer the limits of science than the scientist’s opinions about any topic that is not strictly related to his profession.
Ho! But at least these tenured barbarians unwittingly teach us that
--To become cultivated is to learn that a particular class of questions is meaningless,
thus allowing us to "move on." The ignorantsia speak of "evolution," oblivious to the fact that
--To change thoughts repeatedly is not to evolve. To evolve is to develop the infinitude of the same thought.
Yeah boy, the real action takes place on the vertical plane, which is why
--Religious thought does not go forward, like scientific thought, but rather goes deeper.
--Everything is trivial if the universe is not committed to a metaphysical adventure,
right? But how does this effect Bob? In a couple of ways, I suppose. For
--Intelligence is enabled to discover new truths by rediscovering old truths,
--To write honestly for the rest, one must write fundamentally for oneself.
