Great thoughts from Mr. Belvedere Here is a sample, but please go read it all
As a man who struggles every moment of every, single day to be Virtuous and worthy of Respect, I seek to base all of my Contempt for the actions of others on the answer to the question: Is the action in question an act of Moral Treason.
To be guilty of an act of Moral Treason one must consciously betray ones obligations to God and to his fellowmen.
I have Contempt for any man who is willing to make himself Servile to any Despot, would-be or actual, in order to be allowed to simply continue to exist. I have Contempt for any man who willingly chains himself in Enslavement for the sake of survival, forsaking his Duty to his Posterity [which is every American, be he or she of his own blood or not, that shall come after him].
