I ran across the following video here, “Outtayerdaminde” | See, there’s this thing called biology… (wordpress.com). It is a bit vulgar. Not really for children, but by the standards of this age it is hardly pornographic. Mostly, it just ridicules the “woke.”
The comments that follow “Outtayerdaminde” | See, there’s this thing called biology… (wordpress.com) expressed sadness more than laughter. There is a point where the absence of wisdom is far more horrifying than funny.
Consider Happy Pride Month! Celebrating the essential vice and utmost evil – Washington Times. Here Everett Piper quotes C. S. Lewis.
“There is one vice,” he said.,” [a sin] of which no man in the world is free … [That] essential vice, that utmost evil, is pride.
He went on.
“Unchastity, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere fleabites in comparison. It was through Pride that the Devil became the Devil: Pride leads to every other vice. It is the complete anti-God state of mind.”
Lewis argued that pride makes you feel you are “better” than everyone else. “It is the comparison that makes you proud: the pleasure of being above the rest.” A proud person is never satisfied. Pride makes us always want more. More influence. More control. More power. “If I am a proud man,” he said, “then as long as there is one man in the whole world more powerful, or richer or cleverer than I, he is my rival and my enemy.”Happy Pride Month!

Does pride make us partially insane? Does pride explain the irrational behavior of the woke? If so, then what is the cure? Wisdom? Cal Thomas would say yes. So, he writes Can wise Republicans capitalize on Democrats’ progressive overreach in 2024? – Washington Times, a hopeful column even if it is a bit silly. Is wokeness just a fading, political fad?
President Biden has said he wants to run for a second term. He would be 82 in 2024. Are voters ready to re-elect someone that old?
Who on the left has broad public support? Most of the nationally known progressives have loud voices, but virtually no legislative records. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez , New York Democrat, is the most familiar among this small group, but some believe she and the others are largely media creations with few accomplishments.
Pre-pandemic, a Republican president and Republicans in general were on a roll. In virtually every category that matters — from the economy to immigration, to foreign policy — Republicans were winning. Were it not for the virus and Donald Trump’s caustic personality, Republicans almost certainly would still be in power.Can wise Republicans capitalize on Democrats’ progressive overreach in 2024? – Washington Times
Was the problem in 2020 the virus and Donald Trump’s caustic personality? I think Cal Thomas knows better, but he ….., but who actually knows what is in another man’s mind?
Perhaps it is best to do what Cal Thomas seems to wish we would do, consult the Bible for wisdom. Let’s begin with a passage from the Book of Job.
