quashing dissent by accusations of sexual harassment, racism, and anti-Semitism

Conservative TV personality, Sean Hannity, was recently accused of sexual harassment.  Such accusations against conservatives who are pubic figures is not new.  We can remember Anita Hill’s spurious accusations against Clarence Thomas in September 1991.  Her tale kept morphing each time she retold it.  Candidate Donald Trump effectively silenced these type accusations last October when he said his accusers would be sued in court for these false and damaging (libelous and slanderous) claims.  The resulting silence from his many accusers was deafening as they say.  When faced with possible serious consequences, those who are willing to lie and smear often have second thoughts.  Mr. Hannity, to his credit, is taking the offense (the best form of defense) here by assembling a top-notch legal team to sue false accusers.  His accuser of this past weekend is now walking back her story.

Any and all who dare to oppose the current liberal mindset and the liberal agenda in the US are subject to being accused falsely to discredit their opinions, convictions and arguments, and ultimately to being silenced by being publicly disgraced.

Let’s take a step back and consider:  What does this say about the level and quality of discourse in our free society?

possible permutations of personality

There is an idea that we as individuals may be a part of a larger conscious entity that is simultaneously living multiple lives in different realities, or on different planes of existence or different dimensions.  This raises the possibility of multiple versions or editions of ourselves.  One may wonder what the purpose of such multiple lives might be.  Perhaps the more rapid harvesting of the lessons gained from diverse experiences for the “over mind” is the purpose.

thoughts on free will and God’s foreknowledge

As to this idea of predestination in Protestant circles of mental speculation, we do not buy it.

Why?

Because it negates human free will.  You cannot have both free will and predestination.

Here is how we see it.  As Boethius (died circa 521 A.D.) wrote that God exists outside of time, it follows that He sees past, present and future all in one glance so to speak.  But God’s foreknowledge (remember we are taught to believe that God is all-knowing) of what we will choose does not condition or necessitate that choice.  God knows how we will freely choose, but His advance knowledge does not make us choose what we choose.

we need strong families

We need strong families in these times of social decay and societal fragmentation.  The threats to our children are many and diverse in our toxic culture.  Parents need to protect their children.

Strong families, intact marriages, 2 parent households are necessary for a harmonious society.  (As we have blogged in the past: the purpose of sexual morality is to protect and promote stable marriages and thus stable families.)

the tabu against questioning the Holocaust

Why can there be subjects of historical inquiry that are off limits?

It is currently illegal in many European nations to question the official or generally accepted account of the holocaust of European Jewry during the Second World War.  This is no distortion nor exaggeration.  European readers are well aware of these restrictions.

Our purpose here is not to dissect the official holocaust story, but rather to question the possible reasons or motivations for restricting objective and open inquiry into the official history of the holocaust, and stifling open discussions of the results of such inquiries that are made.
