Forgotten Old Mistakes

Selwyn Duke

My latest.

There is a bit of philosophy at the piece's end.


"Yet the even deeper problem is that moderns view "the oldest things” as just that, old, and not eternal. Our rampant relativism breeds people who make everything relative to themselves and their time; this engenders a chronological chauvinism — attended by nebulous blather about undefined "progress” — that assumes "new” is better because the new is of the now. But even the latter is usually an errant assumption, as new ideas are often just forgotten old mistakes."

1 Excellent, Selwyn, as always. Today's young punks apparently believe that anything that guarantees success, such "white" ideas as education and a good work ethic, is to be ignored. Who needs to earn a living when instead, you can just start a riot, burn down the store, go in and steal anything you need.

The only problem with that theory is that eventually you run out of stores to loot, and the owners go elsewhere to re-start their businesses.

2 And yet every one of those rioters would be furious if someone were to loot their apartment. Funny how unwilling they are to share the wealth then.

3 (Snicker) Right, Tim. "WTF? Why, I just stole that TV last night, and now it's gone! There's no justice, none at all!"

4 What's the point of being a good looter when someone comes and steals from you!
