Exclusive to STR June 25, 2007 "Good enough for government work." -- traditional - - 1 - - What People Know Coercive government always proves to be the worst way to do anything peaceful and civilized; the combination of coercion and top-down central planning ensures this.

Glen Allport 2007-05-06 15:00
Exclusive to STR May 7, 2007 - 1 - Freedom has been fading in America for more than a century – in America of all places, where "freedom" is the national slogan and where enormous personal freedom (relative to most times and places) characterized the nation's beginning.

Exclusive to STR February 7, 2007 Civilization is sick and unhappy, and I claim that the root of it all is the unfree family.

Exclusive to STR The important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as to discover new ways of thinking about them.  ~ Sir William Bragg (1862 - 1942) Trying to fix a symptom of distorted thinking, rather than attacking the root problem, is usually a time- and resource-wasting mistake.

Exclusive to STR January 8, 2007   It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows. ~ Epictetus (c.55-c.135) A paradigm arranges the world, or some portion of it, into a mental framework.

Exclusive to STR December 18, 2006 Imagine two groups struggling to win (or, in one case, to retain) public support for their respective, opposing causes.

Glen Allport 2009-08-12 15:00
Exclusive to STR - 1 - The Law Some years ago, noted philosopher Ringo Starr described an important and now-famous discovery: "Everything government touches turns to crap."
