Word of the day


Wokeism  –  the behaviour and attitudes of people who are sensitive to social and political injustice; a disparaging term for attentiveness to claims for equality and representation from minority groups; the state of an individual being so self and socially aware, that they become completely oblivious to the issue, intention, or objective at hand; a Marxist inspired movement that started off with well-intentioned people who wanted to stop apartheid and social injustice that has morphed into a cult that seeks to silence all of those who disagree.

Sowell says


It can take a while . . .


. . . to get used to a new taste.

But then again:

Saturday soapbox


Saturday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, amuse, bemuse or simply muse, but not abuse.

The death of democracy is not likely to be an assassination from ambush. It will be a slow extinction from apathy, indifference and undernourishment. – Robert M. Hutchins.
