Are you your own worst enemy? (There’s at least one member of this group who admits he is.)

That reminds me of this clip from Narrow Margin where Gene Hackman uses the image of the criminal squirming by adjusting his tie. The relevant part is at 4:45: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFRD_wsPC44

brentan comments on Oct 2, 2019:
He's a bright guy. I would love to see how he expands on ideology as a new religion and the function of forgiveness outside of this new religion (it seems to be a given that we won't see forgiveness inside religion). I think he means a kind of general amnesty for wrongs committed throughout history. I remember some talk years ago about doing something similar with the world economy by forgiving debts and starting again.

Beautiful thought! ❀

Witticism a witty remark. "Maurice roared with laughter at his own witticisms"
brentan comments on Sep 28, 2019:
A pretty conceit, and worth the finding! I have such luck to spin out these fine things still, and, like a silk-worm, out of my self. Here’s master Bartholomew Cokes, of Harrow o’ the Hill, in the county of Middlesex, esquire, takes forth his license to marry mistress Grace Wellborn, of the said place and county: and when does he take it forth? to-day! the four and twentieth of August! Bartholomew-day! Bartholomew upon Bartholomew! there’s the device! who would have marked such a leap-frog chance now! A very . . . less than ames-ace, on two dice! Well, go thy ways, John Littlewit, proctor John Littlewit: one of the pretty wits of Paul’s, the Littlewit of London, so thou art called, and something beside. When a quirk or a quiblin does ’scape thee, and thou dost not watch and apprehend it, and bring it afore the constable of conceit, (there now, I speak quib too,) let them carry thee out o’ the archdeacon’s court into his kitchen, and make a Jack of thee, instead of a John. There I am again la!— - John Littlewit, from Ben Jonson's Bartholomew Fair.

It's interesting that the threat of removing funding doesn't seem to be based on whether they teach languages or not, even though that's what the grants are for. It seemed to change quickly into a discussion about how much ideology they can be allowed to teach.

I spent a few years in Seattle (moving from Ireland) and came away with the notion that there are different pros and cons to the different ways of life. Just as important, I think, is getting some understanding as to why people do things the way they do.

Do we need religion to provide a sense of justice?
brentan comments on Sep 17, 2019:
Probably not anymore but I think we need to remember the religious notions that brought us to this point. I'm saying that because I feel respect for justice is falling in direct proportion to the fall in respect for religion.

Their ignorance of their own religion is unforgivable. Jesus would have been against all types of fornication. If they think they can take the laws of Christianity into the secular world, they should also be hauling adulterers, unmarried fornicators, even masturbators into the churches to be bullied into changing their lifestyles. It's terrifyingly close to what would happen under Sharia law.

brentan comments on Sep 17, 2019:
I think it's more the latter these days. There was a man called Giambattista Vico who said there are 4 phases - times of gods, heroes and men - continually running through history. The fourth phase was a return to the first. Perhaps we're in the fourth phase now.
