It is Election Day in Virginia. Both houses of the General Assembly are up for election. I suppose I will go vote at some point. Having lost all faith in Human Progress, I find the entreaties of politicians to be the language of hollow and icy seductions. They will say anything to attain political power or to hold on to that power.

The lie of progress is a sweet one. It works particularly well in America. Absent a faith in a transcendent, omnipotent and omniscient Being, who is The Source of Truth, Justice and Love, Human Progress is about all we have to look forward to. Given that secular agnostics run education, our ears are trained to listen for it. And whatever they say is progress is progress. Artificial contraception, abortion, infanticide, euthanasia are all signs of progress, not moral depravity. We don’t want to overpopulate The Planet, you know, Good Old Mother Earth. As you can tell, I’m not in the best of moods right now.

My head aches. I want to go back to sleep. I slept for a fairly long time, but I guess I need more sleep. I am still emotionally fragile. I guess I will be til I’m not any more.
