COLLECTIVISM: Collectivism is the subjugation of the individual to a group – whether to a race, class or state does not matter. Man must be chained to collective action and collective thought for the sake of what is called ‘the common good’. Statism has always been the political corollary of collectivism.

ALTRUISM: The foundation of collectivism and statism. The basic principle of altruism is that man has no right to exist for his own sake, that service to others is the only justification of his existence, and that self-sacrifice is his highest moral duty, virtue and value.

Gallup’s PCP (politically correct police) recently created a fervor of outrage by taking umbrage to a tiny Buddhist symbol of peace (as well as other benign historical uses), a sawaustika, placed among other symbols on the Spaniard coat of arms El Morro Theater logo. It looks like a propeller or whirligig to me but apparently some associate it with the German symbol of National Socialism, the swastika, although backwards. The city reacted quickly, amending the perceived micro-aggression by removing the entire coat of arms, leaving only the lettering.

There has been a long tradition of iconoclastic forceful elimination of symbols of oppression, both political and religious, from 8th...

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Now that we are in the New Moon, Leo, you have to work on letting go of balls and chains that hold you back from being productive. Such as that daily $10 per day designer energy drink habit. It gets you so hopped up that you think that you can do trick dance moves that otherwise would be reserved for someone in tiptop shape. Avoid injuries, out with the old and in with the new.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

If there is a God Zeus, he’s likely a happy deity, blessing us with rainstorms, thunder and lightening. Virgo, consider any recent setbacks as storms that you can endure and that will pass, leaving your knowledge pasture all the more greener. Consider chaos your...
