We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"There is no racist like an antiracist: That is because he is obsessed by race, whose actual existence as often as not he denies. He looks at the world through race-tinted spectacles, interprets every event or social phenomenon as a manifestation of racism either implicit or explicit, and in general has the soul of a born inquisitor."
Sorry I don't know who the quote is from. But sadly it is true in this 21st century and maybe always was true to some extent. But the point is that the same sentiment applies to the radical or activists feminists. They have never seemed to be fighting for some great equality but rather for total domination.
All these new age women — chose not to get married; had a job and a career path; looked down on any males, certainly not gonna get married let alone have a love/sex relationship, maybe a kid or two. Possibly take another female as lover, a compromise position. All of a sudden menopause and still no mate, no progeny, nothing but an empty home and two or three cats to stand in as the children. All those years fighting the biological urges and result: feeling cheated somehow. Gee.
As a high school debate coach, it is great to see this type of analysis of argument. However, as to her charge that these type of base arguments is something freshman should have learned to avoid, where? I never learned about the nature of argument in high school nor in college, or graduate school. But as she and others have noted in her analysis, high education today has totally jettisoned the search for truth and the desire to engage rational debate. It is the long march through the institutions that the critical theorists wished in the late 1960, seen not only in the colleges, but also in law and in government. A sad state of affairs for our republic. Franklin noted we have a republic if we can keep it. Can we?
In the end an interesting video. And a attractive teacher. If she would just smile. She almost looked as if she would several times.
