Steyn on Pope John Paul

      The inimitatble Mark Steyn does it again, putting his finger on the problem the Main Stream Media have in understanding a man like Pope John Paul -- he thinks certain things are true, even if we don't like them.  They think reality is negotiable, that it can be whatever we want it to be.

      It's worth noting that the MSM are partly right.  Who will be the next Pope?  That's being negotiated right now, by the College of Cardinals.  There's a large section of reality (Sir Karl Popper called it "World 2,") where reality is consensual.  All of law and politics is "World 2."

      But there's also the other parts of reality. "World 1," the physical universe, and "World 3," logic and mathematics, are not negotiable.  They are what they are, regardless of our hopes, fears, and dreams.  There are areas of interaction -- our decision to build a bridge is part of World 2, but it alters World 1.  There are also constaints -- the carrying capacity of the bridge is determined in World 1.

      The Pope understood that.  The MSM, the liberals, and the Democrats mostly don't.  And that is why the left can't understand the Pope, or "values voters."

THE HOUSE OF SAUD MUST BE DESTROYED -- AND WILL BE!
