Mass killer, spree killer, rampage killer, serial killer…?

Mass killer, spree killer, rampage killer, serial killer… What is the difference? ‘A Nation of Killers?‘ argues that nationality is not a factor in serial killing and implies that neither is the sex of the perpetrator. It uses the term ‘spree killer’ to identify the phenomenon of mass killers but implies that the borders between the categories serial killer and mass killer are blurred. ‘Breaking the Silence of the Lambs: Female Serial Killers and Collective Amnesia‘ identifies that men do not have a monopoly on being serial killers and that our collective amnesia with respect to female serial killers is quite recent (a consequence of the effectiveness of public relations efforts … Continue reading

Quotes worth remembering, at least worth copying

Updated 2019 05 07 Quotes from some of the writings that I came across over the years: “The classical liberalism of the nineteenth century is widely and correctly admired, but we can now see that it was inevitably a transitional phase. The tendencies inherent in individualism were kept within bounds by the health of institutions other than the state, a common moral culture, and the strength of religion. Liberalism drained the power from the institutions. We no longer have a common moral culture and our religion, while pervasive, seems increasingly unable to affect actual behavior. Modern liberalism is one branch of the rupture that occurred in liberalism in the last … Continue reading

Maya Angelou — fame not facts

Maya Angelou, “Trying to support her son as a single mother, she worked as a pimp, prostitute and _____.” How does such a passage make it into an 8th Grade maths test?  That depends… Nobel Prizes are hard to get, Nobel Peace Prizes easier. A Nobel Prize is awarded to people who excelled in a field of science and worked hard at doing so, while a Nobel Peace Prize is awarded primarily to someone who makes the grade for political expediency.  Nobel Peace Prize winners are in the company of, Aristide Briand and Gustav Stresemann (1926); Henry A. Kissinger and Le Duc Tho (1973); Rigoberta Menchú Tum (1992); Yasser Arafat, Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin (1994) Kim Dae-jung (2000); The United Nations … Continue reading

The wall at the border, down Mexico way

The “wall” at the U.S.-Mexico border Originally posted on FB, January, 28, 2017 Why is the liberal media obsessing about that wall? How is it any different from the walls around one’s home? Walls keep us safe, but they cost money. “President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team has signaled to congressional Republican leaders that his preference is to fund the border wall….” Source CNN So far, we still have the right to build, sell, rent and purchase homes that have walls, walls with doors and windows in them. We still have that right and are well advised to secure the windows and to keep the doors locked, basically all day, but especially … Continue reading

Women’s March

The Women’s March on Washington (2017) was probably the single, most important event staged by feminists that evoked in the general public a rejection of feminism. The highlights of the policy platform that were impressed upon the writers of the article covering the event were these (the impressions I took away from the media coverage are added in parentheses after each item in the list): Reproductive rights (government funding of abortions and other forms of birth control); Immigration reform (legalization of illegal immigration); Healthcare reform (government funding of health care for women); Religious discrimination (more government protection for Muslim U.S. women residents, the promotion of Sharia law for women, Burqas, … Continue reading

Censorship, FB joined Google in collaboration

Censorship by Google and Facebook is a reality that should be of great concern to lovers of freedom of expression and of freedom of choice.  It made me glad to see that Tucker Carlson (an American conservative political commentator for Fox News) and Mark Steyn (a Canadian author and political commentator) joined to discuss the social-media cartel’s increasing control of the Internet, and of ideas. Justice needs to be done in  describing the combined influence of Google and FB.  It is not merely deliberate censorship that rules all.  Some of it happens by accident or perhaps on account of opportunities, an unavoidable consequence of a society that transformed itself, from having conversations via … Continue reading

Global warming? While Hell freezes over?

This is a long commentary that relates to our current cold spell and the context of the longer climate trends it is part of.  Of course, I hope that anyone reading it will enjoy doing so.  Some people insist that a long commentary should have an index.  Just in case that is important to any reader (Word Press suggest that it is), it is an afterthought and not part of the original version I posted yesterday, but here it is: Index • Introduction • Note on the Little Ice Age (added 2017 12 30) [Related commentary: Little Ice Age — Climate Trend Milestone?, added 2017 12 31] • Climate comparisons — … Continue reading
