    Quote 1739by Anonymous on 16/01/2011

    People sometimes ask if I have tried to convince black 'leaders' to take a different view on racial issues. Of course not. I wouldn't spend my time trying to persuade the mafia to give up crime. Why should I spend time trying to convince race hustlers to give up victimhood? It's their bread and butter.

      Much of the social history of the Western world over the past three decades has involved replacing what worked with what sounded good.

        The most fundamental fact about the ideas of the political left is that they do not work. Therefore we should not be surprised to find the left concentrated in institutions where ideas do not have to work in order to survive.

            Quote 4116by Anonymous on 15/02/2011

            Egalitarians create the most dangerous inequality of all -- inequality of power. Allowing politicians to determine what all other human beings will be allowed to earn is one of the most reckless gambles imaginable. Like the income tax, it may start off being applied only to the rich but it will inevitably reach us all.

              Quote 4866by Anonymous on 02/03/2011

              I have always been offended by the song that says, 'Everything is beautiful in its own way.' If everything is beautiful, then the word 'beautiful' has no meaning. If everything were purple, there would be no word 'purple' in the language because it would not distinguish one thing from another.

                  If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 60 years ago, a liberal 30 years ago and a racist today.

                    The march of science and technology does not imply growing intellectual complexity in the lives of most people. It often means the opposite.
