"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

Je Suis Charlie?

Today there are thousands in the streets, dancing and partying, in celebration and remembrance of those who died at the hands of Islamic terrorists a few days ago. Tomorrow? Perhaps a few hundred who will be working toward doing something to prevent the next atrocity.

We know what has to happen. All Muslims must rise up and stop the relative few who make up the radicals. I am serious in that but I do not think it will happen. They have no incentive to do so. So I propose that the world's leaders stand up and denounce Islamist ideology. Make Muslims ashamed to be Muslim. If we refuse to do this, there will be no end to this kind of terror. The average Muslim must be given a reason to turn on the radicals or it will not change. And that can only be done through shaming.

Je Suis Charlie ..
It seems sometimes that there are people who have no shame.
