Since Xmas is coming charities are starting to fundraise like crazy. I've decided that in order to support some of my favorite charities, I will institute a mandatory deduction from employees paychecks. Not a lot, maybe like $10 a week, and put that money into a fund used to donate to qualifying charities. What do you think?
It was morality that burned the books of the ancient sages, and morality that halted the free inquiry of the Golden Age and substituted for it the credulous imbecility of the Age of Faith. It was a fixed moral code and a fixed theology which robbed the human race of a thousand years by wasting them upon alchemy, heretic-burning, witchcraft and sacerdotalism.-H.L. Mencken
