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

What Lives Matter?
I watched a little bit of the Democratic debate on CNN last night... it was a Hillary "lovefest"... at least that part of it I saw (I recorded it to watch later today because I am a masochist).
Just as I was shutting down the TV, a question was posed via Twitter (or maybe some other social media). An interesting question, "Do black lives matter or do all lives matter?"
To me, of course, it's the wrong question, it should have been "Do black lives matter more than any others?" Because that is the real meaning of the Tweeter's question.
We seldom hear about Hispanics getting shot by police, or Asians, or anyone else.
