Two weeks ago, Ezra Klein talked about carnism. Here is my answer to this dubious idea. Is ideology more important than biology?
Just like concepts are more than just a word, people are more than just a label. At least since we are supposed to be equal... let’s be on the same page on what was done in the past though!
Women were, are and will always be our equal. Or at least they should have been treated that way from the beginning of time. The XIVth amendment of the Constitution was written in an attempt to bring rights and protections to more people. And still, Congress didn’t see a problem in writing “But … Continue reading We, men, have to support equality with women
White people did it again. White guilt is one of the most twisted theories I have ever heard of.

These issues involve a fight between knowledge and ideology. Between belief and fact. Belief and Ideology are the enemies of reason. Yet, facts can be analyzed in … Continue reading Belief and Ideology : The hard truth behind Easy Believism
The federal government spends far more money in Defence expenses than in Education. It seems more important to kill the “enemies of Freedom” than to teach what Freedom means to your own citizens.
