Nietzsche quote

Yesterday I came across a quotable quote from Nietzsche: ‘The strength of a person’s spirit would then be measured by how much “truth” he could tolerate, or more precisely, to what extent he needs to have it diluted, disguised, sweetened, muted, falsified’.

Failure of nerve

In ‘America’s Cultural Collapse’, a YouTube audio, Gregory Hood recently joined Lipton Matthews to chronicle the demise of America.
