Beautiful Babies and Abortion

By | November 29, 2022

[November 29, 2022]  Babies are beautiful.  I don’t think many would disagree with that statement.  And there is nothing more satisfying in one’s life than to bring a newborn into the world.  Surprisingly, there is the practice of abortion that runs counter to our connection with babies.

What is Beauty?

By | November 28, 2022

[November 28, 2022]  There is nothing more valuable than beauty.  We all know this to be true, but most of us cannot explain it, nor can we fully understand why that is the case.  To articulate an explanation of beauty stretches our minds.  What is beauty, and why is it so valuable?  Why is beauty confusing?  Moreover, why… Read More »

Are you a sovereign individual?  Or not?  If you… Read More »

Danish War Movie: April 9th

By | November 21, 2022

[November 21, 2022]  On April 9th, 1940, the German military machine invaded Denmark.  I enjoy watching movies about war for many reasons but subtitled films of any kind are not on my watch list.  A Danish war movie, April 9th (2015), is a war film that depicts the invasion.  It follows a Danish bicycle Infantry unit sent as… Read More »
