[VIDEO] Bill Whittle on guns, sons, missing dads, and Pajama Boy fads — plus commentary about narcissistic societies: "Bill Whittle is always good. A furious Bill Whittle is even better — and Bill Whittle is mighty angry as he looks at illiberal “liberals” who blame guns for the societal diseases they’ve created, diseases whose outbreaks take the form of angry, vindictive, fatherless boys who need desperately to make all men in the world finally pay attention to them. These are boys and young men, moreover, who are constantly being told that their innate manly virtues, things such as physicality, energy, and loyalty, are disgraceful flaws that lead to rape and murder, and that must therefore be eradicated so as to create the next generation of purer, more womanly man. (I, of course, believe those virtues must be channeled into becoming sheepdogs who protect society.)"

Whittle on Guns, Global Homicide Rates, and Gun Control | Truth Revolt: "Back in January, TruthRevolt posted this Firewall video by Bill Whittle on guns and homicide rates globally. In light of the current acrimonious debate about gun control after the recent shooting at an Oregon community college, now seems an appropriate time to repost Whittle's words of wisdom."

The Reign of Recycling - The New York Times: "He concludes that the social good would be optimized by subsidizing the recycling of some metals, and by imposing a $15 tax on each ton of trash that goes to the landfill. That tax would offset the environmental costs, chiefly the greenhouse impact, and allow each municipality to make a guilt-free choice based on local economics and its citizens’ wishes. The result, Dr. Kinnaman predicts, would be a lot less recycling than there is today.It isn't often I point out a RTWT in the NYeT but here it is. Of course it still assumes that saving 1/100th of a degree of temperature rise (which is likely wrong BTW but let's concede it for argument's sake) is worth trillions of dollars. Ugh.
Then why do so many public officials keep vowing to do more of it? Special-interest politics is one reason — pressure from green groups — but it’s also because recycling intuitively appeals to many voters: It makes people feel virtuous, especially affluent people who feel guilty about their enormous environmental footprint. It is less an ethical activity than a religious ritual, like the ones performed by Catholics to obtain indulgences for their sins."
