Excerpt: "For misleading the American people, and launching the most foolish war since Emperor Augustus in 9 B.C sent his legions into Germany and lost them, Bush deserves to be impeached and, once he has been removed from office, put on trial along with the rest of the president’s men. If convicted, they’ll have plenty of time to mull over their sins." War historian Martin van Creveld is the only non-U.S. author whose writings are obligatory reading by America's Officer Corps."

Greed Is Good: A 300 Year History Of The Idea That "Vice" Is "Virtue"
Music by Unitarian Minister, Richard Storrs Willis
Lyrics by Unitarian Minister, Edmund Sears
Written in 1849, it has long been assumed to be Sears' response to the just ended Mexican-American War. Sears' pacifism would take second place to his commitment to abolishing slavery in the Civil War, but his carol remains, repeated all over the world every year. Probably more than any other Christmas carol, it talks about today — his day or our day. It says that the call to peace and goodwill to all is as loud on any other day as it was on that midnight of old, if we would but listen "in solemn stillness."

Blacks Arrested For Contraband Twice As Often Though Much Less Likely To Have Contraband

http://paxonbothhouses.blogspot.com/2015/04/blacks-2x-as-likely-to-be-arrested-for.html

Alan: Blacks are arrested - and prosecuted - at least twice as often as whites for the "contraband" crimes that most often put Americans behind bars. 

If white people were incarcerated as often as blacks for the crimes both commit with the same regularity, and if blacks were incarcerated for the crimes they commit as often as whites are for those same crimes, the "black prison time" figure of 32% (above) would be cut in half and the "white prison time" figure of 6% would double.

The situation is further complicated because it is much harder for released blacks to find work than it is for released whites, making persistent black unemployment a source of recidivism.

"Where love rules, there is no will to power, 
and where power predominates, love is lacking
The one is the shadow of the other." 
Carl Jung

The Jung quote above is companion piece to Pat Buchanan's observation below:


Republican presidential candidate, Pat Buchanan, the living American who has served longest as a White House senior staff adviser, observed: “The Republican philosophy might be summarized thus: To hell with principle; what matters is power, and that we have it, and that they do not.” “Where the Right Went Wrong" 

Devout Christian, Blaise Pascal


Alan: By "Best Posts" I refer to "Pax" writings which demonstrate most clearly that "the emperor has no clothes."


"Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain" ... except to realize the bedrock purpose of plutocracy: 

perpetuation of top-down, dominance-submission hierarchies. 

"Picking On Black Guys Is How Dimwitted White Guys Prolong Their Own Sodomization"

http://paxonbothhouses.blogspot.com/2014/09/picking-on-black-guys-is-how-dimwitted.html

To instill early awareness of plutocracy's fundamental ruse, I recommend:


"Yertle the Turtle"

Dr. Seuss
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yertle_the_Turtle_and_Other_Stories

Video Performance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FFfbSWbLWw

(This performance is not very inspired and resolves me to make - and post - my own recording.)
Text: http://www.spunk.org/texts/prose/sp000212.txt

"Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories" 

is available in a handsome, hard-bound edition for under $12.00.
This edition is "the perfect gift" for birthdays, First Communions, kindergarten graduations or any other occasion including "random acts of kindness."
http://www.amazon.com/Yertle-Turtle-Other-Stories-Seuss/dp/0394800877

"The Butter Battle Book," "The Lorax" and "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas" are other Dr. Seuss' stories that contribute mightily to the moral education of young people.


You can hear my recorded version of "Grinch" at 

https://soundcloud.com/alan-archibald

The essence of "Yertle" derives from an extraordinary Grimm Brothers' Fairy Tale, 

"The Fisherman And His Wife"
http://www.authorama.com/grimms-fairy-tales-10.html

"The Fisherman And His Wife"

Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fisherman_and_His_Wife

You can hear my recorded version of "Fisherman's Wife" at 

https://soundcloud.com/alan-archibald

A final recommendation for the moral education of young people (and adults) is the 2009 anime' version of

"A Christmas Carol," a Disney production with Jim Carrey "doing all the voices."
http://paxonbothhouses.blogspot.com/2011/12/daily-dose-112911-christmas-carol.html

"The terrible thing about our time is precisely the ease with which theories can be put into practice.  The more perfect, the more idealistic the theories, the more dreadful is their realization.  We are at last beginning to rediscover what perhaps men knew better in very ancient times, in primitive times before utopias were thought of: that liberty is bound up with imperfection, and that limitations, imperfections, errors are not only unavoidable but also salutary. The best is not the ideal.  Where what is theoretically best is imposed on everyone as the norm, then there is no longer any room even to be good.  The best, imposed as a norm, becomes evil.”  

"Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander,” by Trappist monk, Father Thomas Merton

"Charity is the soul of faith, it gives it life; without love, faith dies."
St. Anthony of Padua
