First Things First
by Bodwyn Wook
An English blogeur to-day was condemnatory of the public funding of election campaigns:
Even LPUSA has wobbled badly on this one, public funding of election campaigns is simply not right, and in fact it is wrong. The sole defense against the very real danger of “big money” campaigns is proper education of the young, in constitutional history and moral science.
This last awaits urgent development all over the Old Atlantic West.
Perhaps we can begin with the resuscitation of the idea of morality:
“I Will NOT do every God-damn thing that pops into my empty head just because I can and plus consensus omnium there is some God-damn fool(s) here standing around ready to join in!”
(Naturally, I for one, am in the perfect position of an unexceptionable hypocrisy on this one, having rolled around all my life in our delightful late-modern sewer, along with the rest & the best of the hogs. Especially these ones here in Old Mankato, MN, under its steaming & insectile, promiscuous, curse of having hanged the Indians in 1862….)
