Commentary :: Education
Accuracy (or equivalently, Truth)
13 May 2012
The US Revolutionary War was about breaking-away from the (violent, absolute) tradition of western civilization (see the introduction), it was about establishing equality within a new culture (it opposed both absolute truths and institutions based on absolute ideas), and it was partly about establishing a new Christianity which did not make deals with the state (did not make deals with Caesar), and it was mostly about, the ideas of the enlightenment, an equal people who could learn and determine “truth” for themselves, and use their truths to be creative, in an equal society, where an equal and (truly) free-market can exist,
but where the state supplies its citizens with what they need to:
survive, and
know, and

What Was Wrong With Those?
12 May 2012
Sometimes people simply let their fears of those that are different from them get the better of them. The phantoms created in the mind lurking behind the doors we don't know much about can often be much scarier than the room with a few rabbits that actually exists. Sometimes there are things to be scared of there (maybe a couple of cases of rabies), but a proportionally small amount with the majority being totally nonthreatening. Nonetheless, even after learning of the fact there are no threats or hardly any, people can create images of the strangest monsters out of thin air, find real people to project those images onto and take swings at the monster they see while not really cognizant of the real person behind the image that's getting hit. Delusions, I suppose they call them.
