Words to live by...

"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.

All I could think of for today was political in nature. But I wonder when some news outlet will begin to refer to terror groups as "death cults" since that is what they really seem to be... nothing else seems to fit the mindset of their purpose. And, certainly, the ones attracted to them seem bent on their own deaths and the deaths of others. All a death cult offers is a reason...

And I thought about the picture of the three men in that Brussels airport and how some speculate the third man (on the right) was thought to be part of the group and, possibly, the one who left a suicide belt at the airport. I considered that he might have been there to ensure the other two followed the plan and, when they did, dumped his belt.
