Liberation Theology and Marxism

May 5, 2015

We do not hear all that much about liberation theology nowadays. But it certainly was a major issue in the 70s and 80s, and I wrote extensively about it at the time. Although primarily a phenomena of Latin America, and

Occupiers and Refried Marxism

Oct 18, 2011

Sometimes stuff is better when rehashed or reused. I just had some refried beans for lunch, and it is a great component to a Mexican meal. But other things do not get better, no matter how often they are refried

Faith and Freedom vs Communist Cuba

Nov 29, 2016

With the death of Fidel Castro we still have Western fools extolling this Communist hellhole as some sort of worker’s paradise and an island paragon of human rights. It is nothing of the sort and has never been, ever since

Atheism, Government and Killing

Feb 8, 2014

It is often claimed by atheists, misotheists and Christophobes that religion is the world’s biggest killer. There are two major problems with this. First, by lumping all religions together, we get a very distorted picture of religious killing. The truth
