Slaxl: This guy is really going for it today isn't he?
rewind2846: FTA: "The hostility toward insider trading is based not on any legal consideration but on a vicious perversion of morality: egalitarianism-the same twisted, envy-ridden idea of morality our President is now promulgating in speeches around the nation."You mean that everyone involved in any business deal should have all the information available for that deal at the same time - a level playing field, if you will? Like how capitalism is supposed to work?What is up with these Randian assholes today?
Gosling: I just went to his blog.He's hidden his blog posts behind a paywall. He wants $14 a month, or $145 a year, for the pleasure of reading his nonsense.
joeshill: Words evolve. Get used to it. Or get used to being regarded as a douche. Pick one.
Aristocles: You're getting rather hysterical over this, no?
HighOnCraic: "SAC Capital's founder, Steven A. Cohen, is being tried as a witch..."
Gosling: Why am I reading through this guy's archive? Get a load of this one."Bush lied, people died!"-they yell it out. But that is a moral denunciation. Despite their multiculturalism and relativism, in practice the Left does not treat morality as up for grabs, as subjectively "in the eye of the beholder." They assert moral absolutes, while still mouthing their official doctrine: "There are no absolutes."If relativist Leftists accepted and lived by their notion that morality is a myth, they could not advocate any political position. If morality is a myth, then there's really no such thing as "social justice"-or any other kind of justice, no such thing as an obligation to the needy or to anyone else. If morality is just a "social construct," then the concept of "obligation" as such is mythical-on a par with the concept of "ghost." How can the relativist-Left then have any political position at all? Only by sneaking in the kind of absolutist moral judgments that their theory scorns.

HighOnCraic: "SAC Capital's founder, Steven A. Cohen, is being tried as a witch..."Well, does he weigh more than a duck?
