I have waited till the new blog was up to say THANK YOU!
So many people have donated I am left feeling a little lost for words. This new blog format is itself a donation from Marcus Cox.
All of you who come here and read the blog support it. All of you who mention the ideas and arguments put forth here, support it. All of you who write comments support it. All of you, in one way or another, make this blog what it is. I thank every one of you.
You are the people who make me feel that all is not lost, the selfish and the greedy are not unopposed and are demonstrably wrong when they claim that their morally stunted and rotten way of behaving is ‘just human nature’. It’s not. It is simply one of the less admirable ways in which human nature can be molded.
The selfish and the greedy will always be among us much like athletes foot and halitosis. But we have no need to celebrate let alone emulate them. We don’t need to pay attention to their shrewish, bitter complaints either. Instead we should look to each other and take heart, as I do every day, from the intelligent, open, generous minded people who show themselves here.
