from crux № 14 — honor

I don't always agree with Malkin, but I do respect her. Not only does she have one of the best noses for news around, but she behaves honorably and with respect. Even to those she tries to take down.

Funny thing about the honor culture, it takes generations to "die." My mom was born in Louisiana, her youngest brother was (barely) born in Arizona. My cousins and I may not agree on much, but you would find our code pretty much the same as my (plural) uncles.

Good thing too.

I wasn't responding to the post, I was responding to the comment.

There is not much I can say about the post, the woman is disturbed.

I suppose I could say that I think these cases get more attention than they deserve. And yes, if we're going to nail male sex offenders to the wall, female sex offenders who commit the same crime should get the same penalty.

But my point stands. It's asinine to hold a group responsible for the crimes of an individual.

"Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself. The friction tends to arise when the two are not the same."
"Guard your honor. Let your reputation fall where it may. And outlive the bastards."

— Lois McMaster Bujold, A Civil Campaign

Pardon, I am called NeoWayland.

I'm not a conservative Christian, I'm a libertarian pagan. One of the reasons I hang out at RSM's place is because sometimes they go after people who can't speak for themselves.

That and I really can't stand RSM's cousin, even if he is a Senator from my state.

I thought you handled yourself very well yesterday.

You're right, I don't know you.

But sometimes I do the reluctant advocate thing. You looked like you could use a hand when RSM did the second post this morning. I didn't know you were still reading that site.

They are good people, mostly. They just have certain blind spots.

I started keeping my crux files because I noticed I kept getting into the same discussions in comment threads on other people’s web sites. After a while it just made sense for me to organize my thoughts by topic. These are snippets. It’s not in any particular order, it’s just discussions I have again and again.
