Murray Rothbard on sports.

“Of all areas of life, sports should be the arena least touched by politics. For the glory of being a sports fan is precisely that we are engaging in fun and play, that we are permitted to be ‘irrational’; that is, to be Yankee or Mets fans, to love our team and to hate the enemy, without having to ground these passions in systematic, moral or metaphysical theory. So it is particularity obnoxious when the gaggle of left Puritans invades and takes over the field of sports. Which they have done, of course, with a vengeance.

The Hate Thought squad has run rampant in sports for years. Veteran and respected sports figures, such as Al Campaneris and Jimmy the Greek, have seen their careers destroyed because they gave one politically improper answer to an interviewer’s question. No one dares even explore whether or not the answers were correct; their very expression is a hate-thought-crime; unlike other, seemingly graver, crimes, from their punishment there is no reprieve.

I like to think that sports writers are above politics’ that sports and only sports fill their minds. But now, they too have succumbed, and are, in fact, viciously leftist whenever politics is deemed relevant to sports.”

Devin Stevens on the pledge of allegiance.

“Instead of the pledge of allegiance to the American flag, we should stand and recite parts of the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence from memory.”

Cliches, and Value

Cliches are often more correct than we realize, but when we take cliches and apply them through a moralistic filter, their essence becomes perverted and the “military attitude” that destroys individuality, growth, and all that makes one human abounds, leaving words to empty, meaningless utterances of sound waves, instead of being the truthful, peaceful utterances that they truly are.

“Protecting our freedoms.”

Isn’t it kind of peculiar how the people in charge of “protecting our freedoms” are literally the only people that can take them away from us?!

(I mean the government: not domestic military; although the two are eventually used to take away freedoms).

ANOTHER message on education

No matter how good advice is, applying it to yourself like a military order doesn’t work.

That isn’t what advice does.

Advice isn’t supposed to be used that way.

It’s supposed to trigger neurons in your brain that build connections, but that doesn’t happen when you overstimulate it with misinterpretations and exhaustion.

Memorization is not learning.

Memorization involves a different part of the brain than learning.

Learning activates more parts of your brain, and there is a constant novelty to learning, followed by remembering what you’ve learned.

Learning is supposed to come before memorization, so when you stress memorization as learning, you are incorrect, as memorization is more akin to being hit upside with a hammer until your superiors get you to say what they want you to say, whereas learning involves peace, relaxation, quiet, reflection, integration, specialization, utilization, and eventually, ability: none of which is possible within the modern classroom setting, as there are too many arbitrary deadlines to meet.

Education knows no time limit.
