Justice Thomas has been subject to the most racist and vile attacks since at least 1981 when he joined the Reagan Administration– all because he is a Black man who insists that he be allowed to have his own thoughts and ideas, he believes in individual rights, not group rights, an idea that is literally enshrined in our Declaration of Independence. But because he holds those views, the Left and in particular the bankrupt civil rights groups, attack him.

Military training, throughout history, has required discipline.  Socrates believed that self-control could become the very foundation of moral wisdom if only we could learn how to apply it to overcoming violent passions, such as anger and hatred.   Stoicism appeals to military men and women precisely because it was inspired by ancient military values.  It’s especially relevant today because of its potential to reach many individuals who do not otherwise seek therapy or read self-help literature.  It also holds out the promise of a more lasting, perhaps even lifelong, personal transformation.

The blasphemy law, whether Islamic or not, adopted by the majority of law markers display the respect for one's religious beliefs, within its moral, cultural, and religious-routes that abandon and restrict others, whether in a majority or minority, not to perform hatred, humiliation, insult, and disregard, and hurting the feelings, abusing its belief and its school of thought. As a fact, the blasphemy law executes a warning as traffic lights, to be careful for those who deliberately and knowingly behave to invite danger which indeed, mirrors an initial of self-suicide. It is also protective and educational, whereas opposing that means the license of freedom to abuse, insult, humiliate, and create hatred, whenever one wants and desires for its motives in the name of freedom of press and speech. In this context and concept, if one criticizes the will of the majority is a ridiculous view of point, which demonstrates and demands the minorities' authority on the law of majority that holds safeguard-prospects. As I realize that this law determines the peace, harmony, unity, and respect in multicultural societies; however, one should not practice that in the wrong and unjust way; it will be personal conduct to violate the law, which is not the definition of that law; it is a crime.

No one’s jigsaw puzzle will be completed without obtaining the right pieces from many others. We all are thus connected and interdependent, despite our skin colors, races and religions.
