For nearly fifteen years, I have been writing this blog. For decades before that, I was active on all sorts of websites and in person, trying to convince and debate Natural Rights: Locke’s theories on rights in general, and RKBA specifically. Even the old Packing.org There are some times in that you just get tired. You feel like the people you debate are true believers, and it doesn’t matter what you say, they aren’t prone to logic.
Seeing the cheating on elections, the violent protests, the other violent behaviors makes you think that talking is pointless. You see that a violent conflict is coming and wonder if those who are rushing us to a seemingly inevitable civil war will come to their senses.
It makes one tired. Couple that with my incredibly busy workweek, and there are times when it is hard to string words together. Don’t worry, I am not shutting down the blog, but there are times when it is hard to find words to say that haven’t already been said.
