Fixing Their Wagon
March 15, 2013

*** begin quote ***

Shun them.

The model for this is easy enough to understand. If the person who owned the house down the road from you was known to be a child sex offender, would you invite him to your summer barbecues? Would you contract with his business to perform work? Would you shake his hand when you bumped into him at the store? You probably – hopefully – would not.

Apply the same treatment to the people who insist on living by doing violence to others. For they are exactly like child molesters in the sense that matters: They victimize people. They manipulate and coerce and threaten. They leverage power – force and its threat – to get what they want. It is only because we’ve been conditioned to accept the unacceptable via euphemism and evasion that we tolerate such people among us. Those reading this column no doubt do not accept it. Hence, they ought not to tolerate it. There may be occasions when we are forced to deal with them. But wherever possible, wherever we have the choice, we ought to elect not to deal with them. And we ought to tell them exactly why we want nothing to do with them. Call them on it. Do not let it – their reliance on violence – go unmentioned. Mention it. Bring it into the open. Make them squirm – those that still have the vestigial capacity to squirm when confronted with their own ethical atrocities. But never, ever, accept them as members of civilized society. Because civilization is dying on account of them.

Sounds like a great strategy.

Laugh at them, make them absurd, and then turn the other cheek.

Secession takes many forms!

‘Star-Mangled Banner’: Wait Until You See the Decrepit Flag Flying Over a Harlem School

Given Villaverde’s outrage over the tattered flag hanging high above PS 28 for all to see, you would think the school would have done all it could to replace the eyesore, if not out of respect then for aesthetics. But not so. Even though the school’s principal quickly responded to Villaverde and said “We didn’t mean to be disrespectful” and pledged to fix it, the flag apparently still remains.

“Not only is it not supposed to be up in that condition, but it’s supposed to be disposed of in a respectful way,” he told the Post, which noted the flag is not illuminated at night, which is required for those who do not take the flag down every day.

His repeated calls to the city’s all-purpose hotline, 311, have also yielded no results. And when he contacted the Department of Education, it told him the issue was the local janitor’s problem.

That itself seems to point to a larger problem, however.

If Vets don’t take action, who will?

Certainly not politicians or bureaucrats.
