From a classic book written in the 1800's, regarding Socialism -

“Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain.”
― Frédéric Bastiat, The Law

I thought of you when I read this quote from "Deadlock" by James Scott Bell -

"‘The Bible contains the most profound philosophy, the most perfect morality, and the most refined policy, that was ever conceived on earth.’”"

Very cool!
Who wants to go to space?

Jeff Bezos' (Amazon) Blue Origins made history today as they beat Elon Musk's SpaceX in the reusable rocket race.

Blue Origins just launched its New Shepard space vehicle (video, below) consisting of a BE-3 rocket and crew capsule to a suborbital height of around 100.5 kilometers (62 miles).
The capsule then separated and touched down beneath a parachute, but more importantly, the BE-3 rocket also started its own descent.
After the rockets fired at nearly 5,000 feet, it made a a controlled vertical landing at a gentle 4.4 mph.

"Thomas Jefferson said the cornerstone of democracy rests on the foundation of an educated electorate. These days, an uneducated electorate is crumbling the underpinnings of the American experiment. Evangelicals are contributing to this.

Our experiment in self-government requires a literate electorate. “Whenever the people are well-informed,” Jefferson noted, “they can be trusted with their own government.” When they’re illiterate, the experiment disintegrates.

Political illiteracy is especially pernicious these days..."

This will be fun to see it happen. When do we begin Uber service to the moon?

At the very root, it’s not that “hurt people hurt people”—it’s that sinful people hurt people. It’s not because of something we do or don’t do correctly; it’s because of who we are. It’s not “deeply racists systems” or any other kind of system that’s to blame; it’s the inherently wicked human heart. Without looking to Christ to cleanse and redeem us, pride, selfishness, and jealousy breed in our hearts until “it gives birth to sin; and sin when it is full-grown, gives birth to death”—our own or someone else’s (James 1:15).

Im not a big gun supporter but I do believe they are a necessary evil against government tyranny. This has a funny point though and I laughed.

Now there's a concept worth buying
Introducing the Temperfect Phase-Change Mug: Engineer designs mug to keep coffee temperature just right. "At room temperature, Material X is a solid. But when you pour hot coffee into the mug, the heat dissipates through the stainless steel inner wall of the mug and is absorbed by Material X, which becomes a liquid. This pulls the temperature of the coffee down to 140 degrees F. As the coffee cools, Material X releases its heat back through the lining of the mug – keeping the coffee hot."
