Stubborn? You Bet — Here’s Why

OldFlagby Brad Nelson
Perhaps there is no such thing as total unselfishness. Everyone has some interest behind what they do. But there certainly are such things as duties and responsibilities. More » • (1292 views)

The Litter Bag Mentality

Tree Huggerby Brad Nelson
I just thought of the absurdity of litter bags and the mentality behind them while emptying out the few trifles I had in my own car’s litter bag. I don’t like driving around with a litter bag. It just litters up my car. More » • (1016 views)

Book Review: Up from Slavery

Booker T (thumbnail)by Brad Nelson
After having put this book aside for a while, I finally finished Booker T. Washington’s “Up From Slavery.” You realize just how destructive and pathetic the “civil rights” movement has become (filled with race-mongers such as Jesse Jackson) when you see the approach of a good and decent man.

Excalibur (Blu Ray) – Retrospective Review

ExcaliburLadyLakeby Brad Nelson
Perhaps the best movie that delves into the Arthurian legend continues to be John Boorman’s 1981 “Excalibur,” a full two hours and twenty that seems to slip by in but a minute. It is, to my mind, the gold standard for the myth. More » • (958 views)

The Therapeutic Society

Marxby Brad Nelson
There are basically two opposing forces we’re dealing with today. One is Marxism. Marxism is simple enough to understand. It’s the plundering of others under the guise of “fairness” or “equality.” More » • (723 views)

“Social Justice”: The Tonic for Narcissists

JusticeThumbby Brad Nelson
Guilt (misplaced guilt) is absolutely central to the problems we face today, both economically and morally. The misplaced guilt by those who have done well and are living well is one of the things tearing us apart.  More » • (779 views)

Backwards to Socialism

SocialismThumbby Brad Nelson
It is surely deep in our human nature to either want to lead or to follow. From history (particularly the last century) we can see the strong and ultimately tyrannical drive by some to remake society in their image, to substitute people’s individual destinies for their own.  More » • (656 views)

Movie Review: The Queen

TheQueenby Brad Nelson
I’m a long-time PBS/BBC junkie, so this British film tickles my Masterpiece Theatre fancy. And Helen Mirren is what I call (and I’ll try to use some British understatement) an “accomplished actress.” No…heck, I just can’t do British understatement. She is a near goddess of actresses.

Those Godless Leftists, and Other Thoughts

GodlessHeathenby Brad Nelson
One reason Leftism and atheism often go together is because in the Leftist worldview, people are valued by what they have, not by what they intrinsically are. In the Leftist world view, it is not primary, or perhaps even considered, that people have value as a human being apart from what they own or do, or even what beliefs they hold. More » • (763 views)

Book Review: Team of Rivals

TeamOfRivalsby Brad Nelson
I fairly recently finished Doris Goodwin’s biography of Lincoln, Team of Rivals. I was initially inspired to read this book because of the many bizarre comments by the Paultards (aka “Libertarians”) and others regarding Lincoln which tended to be unhinged and exaggerated. More » • (974 views)

Movie Review: A Shock to the System

ShockToSystemby Brad Nelson
I found this last night while browsing at random the streamable movies on Netflix. I thought, “What? A Michael Caine movie on Netflix that I haven’t seen? And with the Countess of Grantham in it (Elizabeth McGovern)? I’m there!” More » • (676 views)
