  6. By Andy from The Charlotte Capitalist,cross-posted by MetaBlog Well, we really haven't had that spirit here since 1775. In the final installment of his Sparrowhawk series of novels, Ed Cline writes: In Mecklenburg, North Carolina, the provincial congress on May 31 adopted resolves that suspended the power of all royal authority in North Carolina, and sent them to its delegates at the Continental Congress in Philadelphia. The colony thus earned the distinction of being the first to declare its independence from Britain, more than a year before the United Colonies -- or, as Patrick H

  8. By Andy from The Charlotte Capitalist,cross-posted by MetaBlog The Super Bowl really is about goal-achievement: But how can heroic stature arise from a perfectly useless act like carrying a football across a goal line? The answer is that the non-utilitarian nature of sporting goals provides a limited, safe context in which everyone's focus can be on the process of goal-achievement as such, not on the particular nature or value of the goal. Much more from Tom Bowden here. Go Bears! http://ObjectivismOnline.com/blog/archives/002245.html
  9. By Andy from The Charlotte Capitalist,cross-posted by MetaBlog It looks like I foresaw a split in the environmentalist camp. Last week, while writing about Al Gore's "Inconvenient Interview" I noted: Maybe the fact that even the United Nations, which one would think would lead the hysterical global warming charge, has a view different from Gore's has him a bit shaken. If Gore is truly right, why wouldn't he spread his message unabashedly to all listeners. It looks like he has something to hide -- knowledge. And that behavior by itself doesn't prove Gore is wrong, but it sure is
  10. By Andy from The Charlotte Capitalist,cross-posted by MetaBlog Yesterday in my thoughts about Robert Tracinski's "What Went Right?" essay, I noted: But there do have to be fundamental ideas, someone needs to package them into a system, and someone needs to advocate them -- or else they won't spread. That someone is a philosopher -- whether it is Augustine, or Plato, or Aristotle, or Aquinas, or Kant, or Democritus, or Ayn Rand or whomever. And it is those systems of ideas which have both identified and driven the history of the world with varying consequences -- from the splendor of a
  11. By Andy from The Charlotte Capitalist,cross-posted by MetaBlog Originally posted on HBL. *** The Pope recently made a distinction between Christianity and Islam. His primary message was the god of Islam is completely transcendent and has no interaction with us. The message is that we are to simply follow the will of Allah. On the other hand, God of Christianity is connected to us. The link, the Pope says, is "reason". At first this sounds interesting. It seems the Pope advocates reason. Is it possible that Pope Benedict is a modern-day Thomas Aquinas? Reviewing the

  14. By Andy from The Charlotte Capitalist,cross-posted by MetaBlog There is always a scam behind every hysteria. The global warming hysteria masks a fascist/socialist agenda. The bird flu hysteria is no different. From Reuters: Global efforts to fight bird flu need $1.2-1.5 billion extra funding over the next two to three years, the World Bank said on Monday, advocating more effective compensation for poultry farmers caught in the front line. In a report prepared for distribution at a conference this week in the West African country of Mali, the Bank outlined funding needs over and
  15. By Andy from The Charlotte Capitalist,cross-posted by MetaBlog Islam, 1984, & Moderates Ed Cline at Rule of Reason: It is not possible to win the "hearts and minds" of dedicated, or even semi-dedicated Muslims. Islam is one of the most "heartless" of religions. It tolerates good will among only Muslims, and even then it is conditional. As for kaffirs and other non-believers, it is open season on them at the whim of Islam's clerics and rulers. And as for "minds," Islam is more hostile to them than is Christianity. It is a "God says so because Mohammad said
