Catching Up With Today’s Most Important Pieces by The Elephant's Child

The burning question of the day, seems to be about “social Justice”, which I think is pure bunk. There is no such thing. But here is an authority: Frederich Hayek the great economist to settle the question.

 

This is an old video, so I guess he didn’t settle the question at all, but there are still people out there demanding Social Justice, so there you are.

From amgreatness:Another Media-fueled Collusion Narrative Falls Apart

Here’s Andy McCartney on The Lessons of the Mueller Probe Andy has been an invaluable guide to the entire Mueller thing.

David Harsanyi called out presidential candidate Joe Biden on his absurd statement “For eight years, there wasn’t one single hint of a scandal or a lie”, so he reminded Biden of a few of them. (Quite a few.)

I have long suggested that what we really need are courses in basic human nature. So much of the frustration and anger out there would be relieved if people just understood that Life is hard, bad stuff happens, your feelings will be hurt, people you love will die, things will not be fair, and nobody cares that they are not fair. You will be insulted. You may be fired from a job. Perhaps unjustly. Life is not  fair. It’s up to how you deal with things. Celebrate the stuff that goes well, the special moments of deep happiness, But don’t go expecting justice, social or any other kind. Life is hard, and courage is the answer.



Victor Davis Hanson and the Search for Meaning by The Elephant's Child

This one is long,  49 minutes, but I cannot imagine, at the moment, any way it could be better spent. It is brilliant. Please do not miss this.

This has been a national nightmare, with everyone going a bit off the rails, and a lot of catastrophic crashes, and we’re a long way from recovery. Victor Davis Hanson does a very good job of clarifying and walking us through the whole thing. Expectations shattered, overreaction, searching for understanding or meaning, shedding certainty, shedding conviction. Strange and difficult times, and as I said — Dr. Hanson is brilliant.
