For years, political commentators dreamed that the culture war over religious morality that began in the 1960s and ’70s would fade. It has. And the more secular, more ferociously national and racial culture war that has followed is worse.

The longest serving justice in our history was William O. Douglas, who spent nearly 37 years on the High Court. But if Douglas had spent that epoch in Congress, he wouldn’t place first, but 80th.

Lasers are the most powerful light source on earth. With their thin shafts of light and rainbow-pure colors, “Star Wars”-style laser beams are a dazzling cross between theatrical lighting and fireworks. Another technique, animated laser graphics, communicates exciting messages using a medium more eye-catching than conventional slides or video.

The unique features of lasers help put the “spectacle” in spectaculars, and the “special” in special events. This document will help event producers understand the benefits and requirements of laser displays.

The five features of a slave plantation are outlined by Kenneth M. Stampp in The Peculiar Institution: Slavery in the Ante-Bellum South.

Broken down and dilapidated and unsafe housing.
Broken families.
A high degree of violence required in order to hold the place together.
Everybody gets a basic provision, but nobody gets ahead.
Nihilism and despair. This is an intergenerational, ongoing, lasting way of life.

I bought some shoes from a drug dealer. I don't know what he laced them with, but I've been tripping all day.

This page presents a brief summary of the marvelous Science and Magic kits sold by the Gilbert Company. In case you think that some of these things look "hokey" remember that there was no television or video games at the time they were sold.

It has been pointed out that there is no primitive name in natural and formal languages for the O-corner of this square. We have all, some and no, but no primitive name for not all:
… striking … is the observation in [Horn 1989, p.259] that natural languages systematically refuse to lexicalize the O-quantifier, here identified with “not all”. There are no known cases of natural languages with determiners like “nall” ; meaning “not all”. Even in cases that look very promising (like Old English, which has an item nalles, derived from alles, “all” ; by adding the negative prefix
ne- the same that is used in words like never, naught, nor, neither), we end up empty-handed. Nalles does not actually mean “not all” or “not everything”, but “not at all” [Horn 1989, p.261]. Jespersen [1917] suggested that natural language quantifiers form a Triangle, rather than a Square. (Hoeksema 1999, p.2)

For the normative self-understanding of modernity, Christianity has functioned as more than just a precursor or catalyst. Universalistic egalitarianism, from which sprang the ideals of freedom and a collective life in solidarity, the autonomous conduct of life and emancipation, the individual morality of conscience, human rights and democracy, is the direct legacy of the Judaic ethic of justice and the Christian ethic of love. This legacy, substantially unchanged, has been the object of a continual critical reappropriation and reinterpretation. Up to this very day there is no alternative to it. And in light of the current challenges of a post-national constellation, we must draw sustenance now, as in the past, from this substance. Everything else is idle postmodern talk.

According to Habermas, lifeworlds become colonised by steering media when four things happen:[26]

1. Traditional forms of life are dismantled.

2. Social roles are sufficiently differentiated.

3. There are adequate rewards of leisure and money for the alienated labour.

4. Hopes and dreams become individuated by state canalization of welfare and culture.
