We need to focus on respect instead of fairness. — Dalrock

An older Dalrock essay, but generally solid.  Linking it here for certain ideas I am examining in a coming post. Instapundit has a link to an article on his wife’s book Men On Strike in a paper in Bermuda. Together Instapundit and Dr. Helen are doing an incredible job of promoting conversations neither conservatives nor… Continue reading We need to focus on respect instead of fairness. — Dalrock

On Sacrificing Children to Educational Abstractions

There are two heathen altars in American cities on which ordinary citizens sacrifice their children on a regular basis, and it's unclear which has done the most evil, overall.  I'll let others decide which is Molech and which, Chemosh, but the first, most obvious idolatry takes the form of Planned Parenthood's so-called "clinics" and other… Continue reading On Sacrificing Children to Educational Abstractions

Sourcing Villainy for your Villains (The Problem of Evil)

"One of the most important things that an author should know in order to write good and even great stories, readers and future writers, is that evil in fact exists."

Don’t Fade Me to Black

The linked essay was written in 2013, when my son was about 4-1/2.   I posted it on my previous blog (not ripped up, just neglected) in October 2013.  I re-posted it on LinkedIn.com in March, 2015. It has been a thunderous few years. On LinkedIn: Don't Fade Me to Black: A New Paradigm for the Autism Spectrum.… Continue reading Don’t Fade Me to Black

The lover… Continue reading Lancelot’s Chickens, Come Home to Roost

We’re Failing Our Children: repost from Sarah Hoyt’s blog.

And by “we” I mean writers and parents and teachers, and anyone who is supposed to give them an idea of how the world works.
