Thank you, Dr. Hurd. Your essay on racism is right on the money. The most interesting point by far is that liberals/socialists/collectivists of any kind believe that blacks cannot thrive in a state of liberty. Does that mean they thrived during slavery and its offspring Jim Crow ? The bottom line is these marxists are just completely nucking futz. Liberty pre-supposes happiness; a state of liberty is an absolute requirement for flourishing and fulfillment in this life.
