Best of the Infidel, 2018

The bloody twins have divided our civilization between themselves.

It's foolish to dismiss a great thinker or fighter because of one or two trivial errors.

The enemy of my enemy is, in this case, my ally.

Fake morality means coddling criminals.

What would aliens want from us?

I assess trolls and how to handle them.

Are men necessary? (a semi-unserious thought exercise)

With Trump in charge, here's the worst that could happen.

I put forth a modest proposal for Trump's wall.

Trumpism is not the look of the future.

Review of Enlightenment Now by Steven Pinker.

Trump is hastening the end of US global leadership.

Some ruminations on rituals.

A lot of Trumpanzees are beyond redemption.

My view on the question of free will.

Don't overreact to setbacks.

My view on Islam and Muslims.

Some US fundamentalists are a fifth column for a foreign regime.

A dissertation on writing foreign words.

No liberal should support censorship or "hate speech" laws.

Science and religion are mortal enemies and always have been.

Like it or not, celebrities and mass culture are important.

Under these laws, telling the truth is a criminal offense.

Trump or no Trump, we're winning the culture wars.

In the long run, corporate ownership is lethal to internet culture.

If humans gave up meat, what would happen to the existing population of farm animals?

Your troll post was excellent. Immediate deletion of any and all comments is how I deal with them too. No discussion, no debate, just delete.

Shaw: Thanks! Hopefully this year will bring the last post I ever need to write about Trump -- one about his impeachment.

Debra: Glad to hear it. I've seen what happens where trolls are indulged. The comment threads end up looking like a dog park where there are no pooper-scoopers.

A Happy and Prosperous New Year to ya Infidel753!

I actually am more inclined to want tRump to survive through 2020 so we can relish his sorry was getting crushed at the polls. Besides, it is very unlikely the gutless Republican controlled Senate would convict tRump even if the House impeaches.

Rational: And likewise to you!

But as for Trump -- sorry, but I want him out of office as soon as possible. I remain haunted by what could happen as long as he remains in power. The lives of those millions are more important than American domestic political considerations.
