The computers were down at work, so I enjoyed a few hours of improving my mind. One thing I did was finish Greg Gutfeld’s Not Cool. The first 90-some pages were strongly relevant. Then, the book went into the doldrums for about 60 pages. Then, things returned to being highly-valuable until a couple chapters toward the end. The most edifying concept, today anyway, was his disdain for media scripters’ and artists’ obsession with root causes of evil. Ayn Rand put it succinctly: Evil is irrational. There is therefore no understanding it. Name it, protect the innocents, and move on. Once again, I feel better for seeing somebody expose that which is cool as unthinking mistaking of right for wrong and vice versa.
