Philosophy Matters: Machines and Humans

In hearings in the Supreme Court on January 7th, 2022, Justice Sonya Sotomayor asked counsel this question: “How are human beings different from a machine?” The context was the administration’s vaccine mandate for businesses over 100 employees to be enforced through rules written by OSHA. OSHA has near impunity with regulating the safety and use... Continue Reading →

Resistance to Tyranny

“Resistance to Tyrants is Obedience to God” It is a provocative phrase, but if Benjamin Franklin had his way, it would have been on our national seal, complete with a scene from the book of Exodus. Thomas Jefferson liked the sentiment so much he used it as his personal seal. It isn’t surprising that a... Continue Reading →

On Liberty

Love for a thing will reform it far better than hate. I have always loved July the 4th. Our families gather for good food, we watch fireworks displays in town as well as around the nation, and I am reminded again of a unique confluence of historical events that produced this unique experiment in political...

Lies and the Power of Truth

Several common experiences rise to the surface when you read the literature of political dissidents during the middle of the 20th century. These individuals lived under the heel of the Soviet Union and experienced the full force of communism. Several of them saw things clearly that we, as a society, are having a hard time...

Do No Orwellian Harm

Part of the transformational shift happening in our culture right now is a redefinition of terms leading to consequences that baffle and anger a lot of people.
