Individual human existence is brief, death final and irrevocable.

Failed, catastrophic ideologies, however, are consistently resurrected using deceptive semantics and inflated appraisals. “Progressive” doctrine is presented to the public as a revolt against marauding capitalism when it is the very opposite.

With the election of President Trump, the former apostles of political correctness have exposed a profound hypocrisy. Accept their fevered absolutes or be robbed of your voice, vocal extinction, suffer the living death alloted a burial plot in the speechless graveyard. The only freedom offered by imposed fascist tenets is the freedom of a slave to clank his chains, free agency coupled with a severe penalty.

There is no semblance of democracy in The Star’s editorial pages or of its presentation of arbitrary events.
