Meandering Fe

Were the Fe Rune to have a motion, it would be meandering and dissipating. I mean this in the sense of breaking off into smaller bits and wandering apart aimlessly. Fe needs to be controlled, corralled and directed. On its own, it will meander and scatter. This is not the scattering of Hagal, which is […]


Do Evil to be Good? Not really…..

Johnny Cash wrote a song about an inmate whose crime was to kill a person just to see someone die. Cash explained that he wanted to portray the person as doing the most evil thing possible. The sad fact is that there are thrill-killers who are little different than the man in the song. Serial […]


Lose to Win

People will strive very hard when there is a good, solid reward for their efforts. What happens if there is no reward, or worse, if winning feels lousy? I have mentioned this one adventure before.

A Specialized World Requires Specialized Solutions

Human civilization is an evolving thing. Our present society has changed and improved over the centuries. Ironically, it did this in spite of religion. The Christian churches opposed many of the things we accept today. Empirical science and secular governments were condemned by the churches, for example. The idea of a government in which the […]


Starting Right

Most of the world reckons January 1st as New Year’s Day. This would be the secular New Year, as opposed to the various religious and cultural reckonings of New Year’s Day. The Gregorian calendar is the international calendar and the official calendar of most nations. It has been so for Western nations for centuries. The […]
