All wisdom begins in wonder, and this delight kindles a desire for truth that leads us on a quest for the really real -- the source of being itself. Hence, the philosophical impulse, albeit often manifested in atheistic and irreverent stumblings in the dark of human ignorance, begins and ultimately ends in theology -- communicating and communing with our origin and goal. We men are rational animals who seek to know. We are agents of truth who want correct answers to questions that we must ask. From the noblest objects of contemplation to the seemingly insignificant everyday trivialities of life, we attempt to unravel perplexing knots. Limited, blind, and distracted, we nevertheless struggle for wisdom. This is our lot, and it is also our glory.

Affirmative Consent Contract

Katherine Timpf has an article in the National Review about universities’ latest attempt to deal with the sexual revolution: “Students Told to Take Photos with a ‘Consent Contract’ Before They Have Sex.” My friend Andrew commented:

If only someone had thought of this before…. If only it had occurred to someone that you shouldn’t have sex with someone before entering into a publicly verifiable contractual relationship with that person. Maybe the next step for these progressives will be to suggest that these contracts must be witnessed at some sort of public ceremony, so that you have witnesses to prove the consent. And then maybe for health reasons, these contracts should be exclusive and permanent. Oh how far we’ve come! California will lead us all the way around the circle, and the serpent will devour its own tail!

Our society looks so hopeless.
