|Welcome to the Social Issues Page|
|This is the place where the
formative truths and facts find application to social issues. Once a month,
we'll select from among your e-mailings to determine that week's featured
issue. We'll topically do so based upon its current "hot-button" relevance
to our human affairs and the degree to which you intelligently articulate
Next and within our space limitations, we'll publish it here.
Finally, our founder or, increasingly, others who've also become familiar with the formative truths and facts, will apply that knowledge in addressing the issue and the publicized positions of others on it, those of the selected source first and foremost.
In this way, the most abstract and, for the most of us, difficult to understand, humanly common truths and facts more easily can be known from their applications. In this way as well, we truly can think together, our doing so itself to be the formative precondition to our ever getting together geopolitically somewhere, sometime. Only then, next can we form our kind's first "morally exemplary social contract" as a rational fact.
A final note: Please indicate whether or not you'd like us to publicize your email address onsite if your contribution should be featured. If you don't, we'll presume you don't want us to, that presumption itself morally to apply from your own primary private rights of privacy as a formative fact itself.

|The New U.S. War on Terrorism.....|
|For those who understand the formative source through its formative logic, this war isnt new and the terrorism cuts in both directions. The essence of all this is more of the same within a dynamic of what goes around, comes around. This applies even to the particulars we cant foreknow but can predict in essence. Ive focused upon this mostly as it applies to U.S. President Bush as the leader of one side because the outrage allegedly perpetrated by Osama bin Laden and others in the AlQaida is so egregiously outrageous it requires less commentat least through a Western and civilized perspective.|
Moral Applications in point-by-point formation....
The acts of oftenunquestioning subordinates are immoral if they trespass the preeminent rights of others whove not first enacted a similar trespass
A Summation. President Bush essentially has offered nothing new within the war on terrorists he leads. He has taken some three weeks to form his socalled moral coalition to include the backing of NATO and the U.N. within an uneasy alliance. Hes done so much like his father, a former U.S. president also within a morally relative practice of realpolitik. Within this practice, former President Clinton, among others, also led terrorist attacks in response to others upon two U.S. embassies in Africa. In fact we have to go all the way back to U.S. President Carters attempt to free U.S. hostages in Iran to find a moral custodial response to anothers initiated immoral act. That it didnt succeed otherwise only means that its immediate results were no more successful than his successors were. Thatunlike his successorshe didnt kill innocents through his orders and ultimately achieved his moral purpose is to his credit.
A Prognosis. It wouldnt be surprising to see the present President Bush also fail in bringing bin Laden and others to trial or his military not to kill them in selfdefense or by immoral design. Regardless, we can be sure in essence that others will replace them anywaythat one mans terrorist still will be their freedom fighter. We can be sure that moral alliances again will shift to serve the immoral rule of men who either enact or submit to their own converging selfinterests. So, around and around well continue to go unless politically we truly institute the freedom the new Bush at least professes to be loved by those hes recruited into his socalled moral coalition. That the Saudi and Kuwaiti rulers included, among others, arent evenconceptually democratic and even have ordered or abetted trespasses against U..S. citizens rights without a moral response from the U.S. but goes to the moral point itself.
