Hegel was a jackass.

Consider: any time there is a conflict between Good and Evil and the two reach a “compromise” (a synthesis of the two), Evil wins.

In any argument, when one side is right, marshalls all its facts, makes a sound argument… and compromises with the side that is wrong, marshalls NO facts (unless lies count as facts) and makes spurious arguments grounded only in its own fantsies and feelings, and yet the side that’s right compromises for expediency’s sake (or just to back off and “make peace”) then wrong has won again.

So it is in public policy, in childrearing, in education—darned near every aspect of life: there are truths and lies, rights and wrongs, and when what is true and right compromises with what is lies, wrongs, then the liars win.

Even if it’s only a drop of feces in a glass of milk, the milk’s still unfit to drink.

Hegel was a jackass.

And those who surrender principles, who will feast with the Devil himself if he’d just be civil… become Republican’t Congresscritters. (Yeh, guess what population makes up the Demoncrappic Congresscritters. The inquiry is its own answer. *sigh*)

“American conservatism is merely the shadow that follows Radicalism as it moves forward to perdition. It remains behind it, but never retards it, and always advances near its leader. This pretended salt hath utterly lost its savor: wherewith shall it be salted? Its impotency is not hard to explain. It is worthless because it is the conservatism of expediency only, and not of sturdy principle. It tends to risk nothing serious for the sake of truth.”– R. L. Dabney
