From now on, I’m not going to get involved in debates, or try to change people’s minds, or worry about the fallacies in their heads. I’m just going to ignore them, write my opinions, and let other people do what they want to with it. I’m tired of stressing out over other people’s incorrect worldviews… […]
Life is boring and disappointing when you rely on the intellectual capabilities of a randomly-sampled large number of human beings. One question that remains unanswered, however, is how should one accept one’s own limitations? If I, for example, am frustrated at the ignorance and apathy of others, what does that say about my own ignorance and apathy? […]
Self-ownership is the basis of peace. If we don’t accept the fact that each individual owns his or her own body, then we cannot have peace. I’m also starting to agree with Murray Rothbard’s position on abortion. I don’t have a completely finished position on it, though.
The same myths are going to be perpetrated throughout history, and there’s nothing we can do to stop them absolutely for all time. Peace must come through a different method. Christianity. Politics. Economics. Voluntarism and Capitalism. Liberal. Fem.
I’m becoming more and more convinced that in order to obtain happiness, one must find what gives one inner peace, instead of trying to solve all of the horrors of the outside world. If “inner peace” involves alleviating some of these causes, then the actions might be more beneficial. But without this “inner peace“, alleviating the […]
Inevitability can be a comfort. Certain inevitabilities that I have discovered in my life have given me peace, despite the inevitable troubles that I know I’m going to face all-throughout it. If it weren’t for these inevitable truths, I would have no hope for a good life. Truth leads to peace. Absolute truths lead to […]
Society isn’t perfect. No one is. We’re all hypocrites. However, I don’t think that means we sit by when we have something that we feel like we need to say about something. I don’t think that we can say “Well, I’m not perfect, either. So it’s ok if this man rapes this little girl because […]
I once had a blog. I guess it was near 10 year ago, now. Would’ve made me 15, 16 years old. Yikes. Glad it’s not still around (although a part of me wishes I could still see what I wrote, and only me). But I’ve always been a scatterbrained little boy, for a multitude of reasons. […]
Oh, Cody. Why do you write anything? Why do you do this to yourself? The brain thinks. It plays your shortcomings on a loop. Your head is a fucking mess. The filing cabinet is the skull: everything is just strewn about in absolute disorganization. Why not just keep it in your head? Why ever withdraw […]
This is one of those books that is hard to do justice with a review. The copy that I read, borrowed from my best friend, has a preface by Walter Cronkite written in 1983, and an afterword by Eric Fromm in 1961. I’ll share a little bit of each of these before I write my […]
