Manchester, May 22 - Decadent Concert - Sick-Minde…

  Last night another sick-minded, pathetic, inexcusable Islamist (at least, we believe it’s Islamist like most absolutely horrendous terror attacks these days, what a religion...). Once again, the target was situated in Europe: Manchester, England. But what is really behind this?   First, the stage: a decadent teenage concert such as capitalism LOVES to produce. The goal: make tons of money for the rich people “owning” an industry (in this case the music industry) and a good-looking performer picked by lot. Do so by filling the heads of our young with shallow drivel and hedonistic obsessions. What could be better? You get the money funneled to the rich, as is always the goal (the one and only goal!) of capitalism; and – as a useful side-effect – you curtail the ability of people to shrug off thei…

So Long, 007-2

Today, Sir Roger Moore was reported to have passed away. Although he acted in many different roles, he will obviously be remembered most for playing James Bond, Agent 007. To me, Roger Moore was a lot like John Wayne in the sense that in the majority of his parts, he was essentially playing a greatl…

A Question for All Socialists

Some socialists today claim that in their vision of Utopia, only "essential" industries would be nationalized and put under government ownership and control. This brings up the sticky question of which industries, precisely, should be called "essential" and which ones "non-essential"? On what criter…

In New York State we are seeing expanding policies to limit the purchase of cigarettes by youth from age 18 to age 21.  I don't agree with this tightening prohibition policy.  It should be left at 18, or even moved back to 16.  The policy creates black market consequences, and black m…
