Steynianism 120

“It is evident, though, that the rights recognized and expounded in the Declaration apply to everyone by virtue of the common origin of the person, who remains the high-point of God’s creative design for the world and for history. They are based on the natural law inscribed on human hearts and present in different cultures and civilizations… Experience shows that legality often prevails over justice when the insistence upon rights makes them appear as the exclusive result of legislative enactments or normative decisions taken by the various agencies of those in power. When presented purely in terms of legality, rights risk becoming weak propositions divorced from the ethical and rational dimension which is their foundation and their goal.”

~ Joseph Ratzinger, Benedict XVI ~

Warman Wednesday, by Mark Steyn

“So, in order to support the Freedom Five as they resist Mr Warman’s attempt to shut them down, we’re holding a special fundraiser until midnight Eastern Time tonight. For the whole of Warman Wednesday, 50 per cent of the purchase price of America Alone – that’s to say, our entire profit – will be donated to the legal defense fund for Ezra and Co. That’s 50 per cent of the purchase price of America Alone not just in the new paperback edition, but also of the hardback, the CD, the audio cassette and the MP3 version. Better yet, we’ll also pass on to our Internet comrades 50 per cent of the purchase price of the America Alone Anniversary Special: you’ll get America Alone plus The Face Of The Tiger and the Viva Steyn! T-shirt at one low price, and Ezra, Kate, Kathy and Free Dominion will get half the proceeds.”
