AMERICANS: STOP LIVING DEFENSIVELY!

  • JIHAD THIS, BABY!



    So far, Muslims have their greatest victory over us by making us shift into defensive living with regard to them. We tread with fear of "offending" them, of inciting world-wide riots by Muslims against us, and of always trying to curry favor with irrationalists. We used to go about life, guided by our own thoughts and desires, and no defensiveness. It is our fault that we let them dominate our behavior. STOP IT! Americans do not live defensively! Let savages fear us!

HUMAN POWER = IDEA POWER

  • Ideas power men. Men power cultures. Cultures power civilizations. Civilizations power history. Ideas are the fuel of man's mind.
  • It is not a question of whether man chooses to be guided by [philosophy]: he is not equipped to live without it. (Ayn Rand)
  • History is philosophy teaching by example (Lord Bolingbroke)
  • The trouble with nations is that there is an unequal distribution of capitalism. (Rush Limbaugh)
  • Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear. (Thomas Jefferson)

I read God Is Not Great based on your recommendation. Thank you so much. As an Objectivist, I can find flaws but they are small when compared to the value of the book, especially as spiritual fuel. Hitchens is an intelligent man and I too would love to sit down and have a beer with him. I can't say that of Medved.

John,

I am pleased that you found the fun in Hitchens' book as well and would like to chat over a beer. As an Objectivist, you surely would find vast areas of disagreement, but none would be discussed disagreeably. While I cannot guarantee such, I suspect that Medved would go "ballistic" over certain areas and shut down any conversation on the one hand and all the enjoyment on the other.

Test message: I bought Hitchen' book and listen to Medved.

I bought Hitchens' book and listen to Medved frequently. I like both. Both are very intellectual. Medved DOES indeed vigorously defend his religious views, but I listen to him frequently and am willing to allow him his biases. On most topics, he is fair and intelligent and polite. I listened to the Hitchens interview. Medved was constrained, when one considers how truly religious he is. I have not finished Hitchens' book; I am perhaps half through. It is of course interesting and stimulating, but Christopher is somewhat bitter and his chapters often finish on an overly dark note. Thomas Paine was a little more effective in The Age of Reason because of his humor. Hitchens would have been well served to add some appropriate sarcastic humor to his book as well. He is obviously super intelligent and extremely well educated. They both are. I like them both.
