Christopher Hitchens: RIP

Christopher HitchensI knew Christopher Hitchens casually, envied his rhetorical fluency, abhorred his interventionist cheerleading, and was offended by his arrogantly dismissive manner toward those he deemed his inferiors in debate or discussion. Presumably as result of his profligate life style, Hitchens surprisingly graduated from Oxford with only third class honors. If some non-academic institution of appraisal were available to offset Hitchens’ undeniable gifts of the mind with his deficiencies of character and heart, the Oxford grade would seem deserved even if Hitchens had been a dutiful student.

Money Power World Rule

Tragedy and HopeThe late Georgetown University historian Carroll Quigley said in his book titled, "Tragedy and Hope:"

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences."

God said, ‘Let Newton Be’ and all was Light.”
-Alexander Pope 

Count on the Liberal Media to know when to stop. Exposes of the manifold hypocrisies of Newt(on) Gingrich always conclude with knees bent in acknowledgement of his “gigantic intellect.” (Like the republican yahoos they long for a thrilla in Manila: the great white hope exposing the uppity black professor from that bastion of friedmaniac economics, the U of C. ) In this corner (weight confidential), Newt(on) Gingrich, who has a Tulane Ph.D, and his (unpublishable) dissertation: Belgian Educational Policy in the Congo: 1945-1960. Newt taught history and geography at West Georgia College (now called The University of West Georgia) for 8 years. But he was denied tenure, having failed to meet the requirement of making some scholarly contribution. (He did however perfect the pose of the pompous pontificating professor, a Mr. Chips for the Right.) His subsequent publications have failed to correct that situation.
