By @the_howling_void)

As if it required a defense.

Make no mistake, the zealotry of โ€œpolitical correctnessโ€ is a war on โ€œfactual correctness.โ€
When truths offend self-esteem, there is a sizable caucus that sets about the task of abolishing #Truth with a capitol T.

Nothing is better than anything else if all truths are relative
Thinkers as diverse as hippyish psychonaut #TerenceMcKenna, contrarian political journalist #ChristopherHitchens, and Friedrich #Nietzsche all identified relativism as the great threat to the human endeavor

Today is the 79th #birthday of #German economist and writer Roland Baader(1940-2012), a proponent of the #AustrianSchool of #economics, an indefatigable defender of #liberalism and prophet of the dangers of creeping #socialism. In a sense, a secular Martin #Luther.
Under hashtags of the form #MDHP-๐‘› I will publish my translation of the following #obituary for Baader:

..The title of the above newspaper article has no DIRECT relation to Baader's work, rather is an #allusion to a subtitle of a book by Friedrich #Nietzsche (1844-1900), written when Nietzsche was at the verge of mentally collapsing. (Nietzsche was incapacitated from1889 onwards).
