The Killing Games

The Killing Games

War makes me sick to my soul. What is worth the price of millions of dead people? There’s nothing worth having if that’s the cost.

Genuine Truth

Genuine Truth

There’s a part in the book 1984 that’s stuck in my mind and comes up and around regularly like brain cud. It’s something I can’t swallow, but I can’t spit it out either, so round and round it goes in the background. It’s the part where O’Brien holds up four fingers ... … Read entire article »

Right and Wrong vs. Supporting the Cause

Right and Wrong vs. Supporting the Cause

There’s a lot of head butting out there these days, something I don’t have much taste or tolerance for. I don’t see brute force as a proper determinant of winners and losers.
