About Wisdom

About Wisdom

    By Sigrid Weidenweber The definition of wisdom is the ability to discern between falsehood and outright lies, and the truth. Yes, there are truths and one must know them. The longer I look at the world, my own surroundings, consisting of our part of the globe, the more distressed I become. I remember […]

A Student of History is not Surprised by the Riots

    By Sigrid Weidenweber If you go back to the days of Rome, you will note that the empire was weakened to the point of collapse by power-mad Caesars, corrupt senators, and government officials, using unruly mobs to gain the power they could not attain otherwise. However, we do not have to go back […]

COVID – The Chinese Virus | Common Sense Gets Overpowered by Bad Science

COVID – The Chinese Virus | Common Sense Gets Overpowered by Bad Science

    By Sigrid Weidenweber In times like ours I delight in debate with my grandsons—fifteen and seventeen years old. Until recently we mostly saw the world in terms of common understanding. Lately our debates have become acrimonious, not only because of the corona virus, but because of the statistics the boys use to cement […]

A Lockdown Insanity Without End

A Lockdown Insanity Without End

    By Sigrid Weidenweber The headline for my article was not minted in my mind. It came from the mouth of a German Professor of virology and, translated reads thus: Corona Wahn ohne Ende.

Many Are the Ways in Which the Corona Virus Extorts Wealth Or, How Enforced Solitude Invites Materialism

Then there is the economy—it is ticking along anemically, loosing billions every week because of the shut-down. Add to that the huge amounts lost […]

The Corona Virus Stimulus Package—a Power-grab for Washington

The Corona Virus Stimulus Package—a Power-grab for Washington

    By Sigrid Weidenweber Whenever I hear Washington announce financial relief, stimulus and aid to help us, the governed, I cringe. It is a visceral response, for I have learned that every time this occurs, the result is more debt to be dealt with in the future. Milton Freedman’s famous dictate that government is […]

Musings About China’s Corona Virus

    By Sigrid Weidenweber As my entire social life is concentrated in a small circle of healthy people, all shut off, I have ample time to peruse the many problems associated with viruses.
