Some words on the issue of EQUALITY

When we call men “equal”, what is meant? GK Chesterton, in his book “What I Saw in America”, made a brilliant observation on what it means, and I will summarize and expound his findings. It doesn’t mean that we are equally intelligent: some are just simply smarter than others. Or that we are equally clever:…

A Requiem for Innocence

Have you ever watched a situation unfold, watching as parts and bit parts are played out, as things seem to spin out of control? I’ve been watching the culture for a number of years and I suddenly made a connection to something that at one time, at least, seemed to be obvious. Something died in…
