Guess what? It’s time to Share Your World! Want to play along? See Melanie for the rules, badges, and questions. And now, here are this week’s questions…
In your opinion, does patriotism require the belief that one’s country is the greatest on earth? That great philosopher and incredible bluesman Muddy Waters once opined “You cain’t be the best, you can only be a good’un.” I think it requires that you believe your country is a good’un. Which I do.
Why is patriotism considered by some to be the highest of virtues? What is so important about love of country? Shouldn’t we be more concerned about humankind, or the planet as a whole, rather than a single country? It boils down to one thing: home. And, you know what? I’m going to leave it there, mostly because I’ve been fighting with this question all afternoon, but also because I think you know what I mean. (Ain’t I a stinker?)
What is the relationship between decisions and consequences? Decisions are conclusions or judgments reached after considerations or deliberations. Consequences is half a city in New Mexico.
Melanie, you knew I’d say that, didn’t you?
What is social justice? A myth.
What’s one body part you wouldn’t mind losing? My right leg: it’s the one left lame by my stroke and the one that has lymphedema in it. I’d replace it with a wooden leg.
See you in the funny papers!
