A right is not something someone gives you – it’s something that no one can take away.
Wise men learn from fools than fools from the wise.
It is when we stop thinking about what we don’t have or what we lack, and become grateful for who we are, that we can gain access to true unlimited inspiration.
It must sing of music, sculpture, color, architecture, landscape design, and the arts of the workers in brass and iron, ceramics and marble and stone – each a part of a chorus, each adding beauty to the others.
This was an inscription in the museum for Bok Tower in Lake Wales, FL. If you have the chance to visit, you should.
You talk o’ better food for us, an’ schools, an’ fires, an’ all:Excerpt from Kipling’s poem “tommy”
We’ll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
Don’t mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
The Widow’s Uniform is not the soldier-man’s disgrace.
For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Chuck him out, the brute!”
But it’s “Saviour of ‘is country” when the guns begin to shoot;

Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.
