        « Poor Lord Saatchi | Main | I believe... »


        James Fletcher Baxter

        "...the creative process is a choicemaking process."

        The missing element in every human 'solution' is an
        accurate definition of the creature. The way we define
        'human' determines our view of self, others, relationships,
        institutions, life, and future. Important? Only the Creator
        who made us in His own image is qualified to define us
        accurately. Choose wisely...there are results.

        Human is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by nature
        and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of Criteria.
        Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and definitive characteristic
        is, and of Right ought to be, the natural foundation of his
        environments, institutions, and respectful relations to his
        fellow-man. Thus, he is oriented to a Freedom whose roots
        are in the Order of the universe.

        The arts and the sciences of man, as with his habits,
        customs, and traditions, are the creative harvest of
        his perceptive and selective powers. Creativity, the
        creative process, is a choice-making process. His
        articles, constructs, and commodities, however marvelous
        to behold, deserve neither awe nor idolatry, for man, not
        his contrivance, is earth's own highest expression of the
        creative process.

        Man is earth's Choicemaker. The sublime and significant
        act of choosing is, itself, the Archimedean fulcrum upon
        which man levers and redirects the forces of cause and
        effect to an elected level of quality and diversity.
        Further, it orients him toward a natural environmental
        opportunity, freedom, and bestows earth's title, The
        Choicemaker, on his singular and plural brow. selah

        I would go so far as to say that the charge of hypocrisy is often used as a deliberate and cynical ploy to intimidate those who belive there is such a thing as morality in private life, and that the private impinges on the public. Which of us, after all, is perfect? Which of us has never done anything that he was ashamed of--unless, of course, he has no shame? Which of us wants to see all our failings hung out to dry on public view?

        Put bluntly, the libertines have become rather attached to a lifestyle of soft drugs, casual sex and all the rest of the utlimately self-destructive fallout of the 1960s, and are therefore keen to shut up anyone who looks like spoiling their fun. And they have found that accusing such people of 'hypocrisy' is a very effective way of doing so.

        Conservatives need to recognise this moral intimidation for what is it, and fight back at every turn.
