Reading the New York Times is just reading the NYT. It does not make you elite.

 I'd rather have the opportunity to succeed as me, than have the opportunity to make sure that people who look like me succeed, where I or my children don't get to.

Today's new left seems to be all about living through the lives of others.  

Working for a billionaire elite makes them feel they are like that elite. Having people who look like them, dress like them, have intercourse with people of their type, or with the same dislikes of the body they have as them, makes them feel represented among the elite. 

The problem with what sociology terms sympathetic magic, is that it does not work. Reading the New York Times is just reading the NYT. It does not make you elite. 

It is a rather smart trick to play though. Foster divisive identity. Convince people they are so alike others who look or sound like them or live where they do or have sex like them, that it does not matter whether they themselves are successful in the society they are propping up for the super rich ... who benefit most by a system requiring close contacts with the state; often they run in the same circles as the political elite, or are pleased to have and lobby for regulations they can comply with while new competitors are kept out by the complexity and expense. 

A youth which complains endlessly about a system they themselves vote for every few years, because they feel more part of the elite by doing so, is the opposite of elite and cause their own poverty, tragically, for a hope that does not benefit them personally.

Apologise for your temptation

Temptation. Pray, thank God you have not fallen yet since last time. Apologise for your curent temptation. Ask him for the grace to continue on. 

If it persists, ask, is this thought habit or new. Habit happens in thought, actions merely follow. You also know where habitual thoughts go. If habit, disengage, it is not 'thought', but repetition, thoughtlessness. 

If it remains strong, know our minds are analogue, not digital. Ask what the thought symbolises to you, what its meaning is below what you think. It is a symbol of something else, other desires or concerns. Address those symbols, but engage meekly, and pray to God, thanking him and asking for grace. 

If it persists, distract yourself, focus on something else. Remember that you cannot fight future battles, only your present one. Often we push ourselves into temptation by living in a thousand futures that may never happen. Turn to prayer, even pray out loud. 

Life oscillates between strength and weakness, awareness, and sleep, easy and difficult. Both difficulty and ease will come and go. Staying firm despite both is the virtue of fortitude. Don't try to argue with your devils, you would not be aware that your temptation were wrong if you did not know those arguments will only work, because you have oscillated into a stage of weakness, and not against your sound and logical mind.

If you fall, immediately apologise to God for disappointing him, and ask his strength to again pursue good. Don't wait for confession to repent, confess later, but repent that moment.

Have faith in God, and start the fight to serve him again that very moment. Despair is a weapon the devil loves to use against us. Hope, real hope, is a power from God. Pray. Thank God for his grace, and for giving you repentance, yet again, and ask that you continue to walk in it. God does not judge you by who you were yesterday, he cares about who you are today.

Fight those battles you can fight, any one you see you are able to. Take your opportunities. Those which may not be there tomorrow. 

Fight in the present, and be always aware of where life's currents drag you to. You build today what tomorrow can behold, you strengthen your defences tomorrow, through present actions. You build virtue tomorrow, by forming habits of good virtue today, whenever you have the opportunity to. 

Present resolve is strong, future resolve is only as strong as the present resolve of each day you face. God gives us our daily bread, like he gave heavenly bread to the Israelites in the desert, enough for our present needs, but nothing secures against the future, which winds about out of sight and predictability. We get each day, now, we only get tomorrow tomorrow.

South Africa in a recession, and unlikely to properly recover soon.

'SA grew but 0,2% for the whole of 2019! We are in a recession and now unlikely to get out of it soon due to power shortages and coronavirus. This is a harsh harsh environment for business and particularly SMMEs.' economist Mike Schussler writes, adding,

'President Ramaphosa now has quite easily the worst economic growth record of SA leaders. It was not of his making perhaps but to get out of a rut you cannot play with the uncertainty of EWC, No clear economic policy other than spin. Unions lead important economic departments' and that,

'6 out of 9 quarter on quarter GDP declines is honestly not a record that helps confidence, It more often than not leads to leadership change (E.g. Brazil). The curse Zuma left SA with is not going away without decisive action to help business grow, profit in order to create work.'

Covid-19 Wuhan Coronavirus will not be contained. Here is how-to save your life.

Take a moment to read this. It is something that may save your life.

The editor of top scientific and academic discussion publication Quillette, Claire Lehmann, says:

We've confirmed human-to-human transmission of #COVIDー19 in Sydney & we know asymptomatic people transmit the virus. The time to start self-distancing is now. Advice this morning from Health Minister Greg Hunt to 'wash hands' & 'look out for each other is inadequate.' Thread.

The virus is not containable. It harms can only be mitigated. The people in our community most likely to be harmed are the already sick, frail, & elderly.

Our hospitals do not have "surge capacity." Therefore it's our responsibility to try to slow the spread of the virus.

How do we slow the spread? Through self-distancing. A preprint paper on medRvix states that the most effective strategies used in Wuhan were:

a) shutdown of public transport;
b) closure of entertainment venues; &
c) banning of public gatherings

https://t.co/APUhLJSX2b

This is done to flatten the curve. To get ahead of the virus. If everyone gets sick all at once, our healthcare system ***cannot deal with it.***

Instead of waiting for government advice, I've started practising self-distancing measures myself.

These include:
- driving instead of catching public transport
- cancelling non-essential travel
- organising workbooks & activities for homeschooling
- conducting all my work remotely
- cancelling in-person meetings

I've also stocked up on medical supplies to treat loved ones at home. Zinc lozenges, magnesium & potassium supplements, rehydration powders, thermometers are all essential. If you have relatives w/ respiratory problems, make sure you have a plan for oxygen therapy at home.

This is not about "panicking" this is about getting ahead of the virus. We can beat this thing, but we have to adapt, and fast.

Our mindset needs to be focused on being proactive, not reactive. Not for ourselves, but for the most vulnerable in the community.

Do you have to hate your 'father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters' to be a Christian? What the verse means ...

I recently quoted Jesus in the gospel, where he says: 'If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters--yes, even their own life--such a person cannot be my disciple.' (Luke 14 v 26).

I explained that he did not mean that we should hate our parents and everyone important (after all, the 4th commandment is honour thy father and thy mother), but that what Jesus meant by that was that to follow the Christian way of life is to choose to be moral should the heavens fall, i.e. even if it comes at great cost in this world to the Christian and to all the people they love. It was a difficult verse of the bible I was explaining. I was not meaning people should hate their families, but that Jesus meant that morality should be pursued even at the ultimate cost of one's own life, and of everything that matters in life.

A suggested prayer ritual against the evil in today's world

Pray: Angel of God x7 for each of the virtues. Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, O my Jesus: x10 for obedience to each of 10 commandments. Pray to St Michael, Memorare, Anima Christi. And then ask for all the prayers to apply to your spouse, kids, siblings, parents & to theirs too.

Add a request for such blessings of virtue, goodness, to also be granted to the people of the nations, nationalities and peoples your blood comes from, and is connected to, and to your community and to the nation in which which you live. Say it daily or as near that as you can.

Give it your best shot, rather than fearing loss.

by Marc Evan Aupiais

Among the worst things many lawyers learn while still interns is that all that matters is winning, or achieving certain objectives within a very limited time period. It sets them up for both massive stress and for overriding their client's wishes, if they cannot escape this dangerous sort of thinking.

An intern is told to write three summonses in a single day. They obey, but the summonses are substandard, and every time they do so, remain substandard, because they have been taught to work for an object instead of to work as best they can. Give an intern instead one summons to write over three days, and the next he will write in two, and the next in a few hours, and he soon surpasses the intern who consistently writes three in a day, not the least in an ability to write without serious error. Speed is something which should not be there out of the hat, it should come with experience and rightly earned confidence.

I don't tell myself I will get this, this and this done today. If I do, I know I am in danger of doing shoddy work in all. Instead, I tell myself, I am setting aside this much time today, for this, this much time for this other thing, and this much time for that. The result is that I do better work, and achieve my goal. As a sole practitioner, I also find that I am far better motivated to get my work done timeously, by setting aside time for it, than by setting set specific goals. Goals can be useful and deadlines do need to be met, but if the focus is on the goal, work quality is likely to suffer.

What governs an attorney, whether in the office or at court, should be procedural, not substantive. At court, I will do all I am able to do to protect my client's rights, both in offence and defence. But, should I instead decide that I shall win, I add enough stress to my job to hinder myself somewhat, which is why I don't focus on that. Such an approach, of win at all costs, also makes us fearful of attempting some matter well within our wheelhouse but which may be difficult, or which may see us lose.

Good sportsmanship, we are told, is always giving your all on the field, while respecting the rules and your opponents. Be down a few points and if your only goal is to win, then you have lost the morale for it. But, if your goal is to simply always give your best, you might well come back from your early losses and still have victory.

A lawyer wanting to win may make all the strategic decisions for their client, and be surprised when sued for negligence by a disappointed patron.

A lawyer whose concern is procedure, not substance i.e. one which focuses on doing their job the best they are able, rather than on winning, however, has the added advantage of being a creature of instruction. The decision to take a risk for a client can send a man to the madhouse from stress. However, informing your client of all the risks of various decisions but letting them decide not only lengthens a lawyer's life due to a reduction in stress but also gives their client ownership of the decision.

Having a win-lose mindset instantly puts the lawyer's ego into a matter. With each case he feels he is fighting for his own life and reputation. But, his client might not have told him everything.

Having instead a procedural mindset, of: whatever I am to do today, I will give it my best shot, regardless of whether I succeed or not, however, makes a legal career bearable and puts the client back in the driver's seat. The lawyer is operating without ego, because his pride is not tied in to victory, but into giving the best possible service to his client, in the circumstances.

The Holy Rosary (Full Text)

In the name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.

Amen.


I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth;

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified,

died,

and was buried.

He descended into Hell;
The third day he rose again from the dead;
He ascended into Heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God,
the Father Almighty;
From thence He shall come
to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Holy Catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.
Amen.

Hallowed be thy name;

Having said the five decades of the Rosary, the Hail Holy Queen is said.


Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
Our Life, Our Sweetness, and Our Hope.

To thee do we cry,
poor banished children of Eve.

To thee do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.

Turn then, Most Gracious Advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us,
and after this, our exile,
show us the blessed fruit of thy womb,
Jesus.

Oh clement, oh loving, oh sweet Virgin Mary,
Pray for us oh Holy Mother of God,
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Amen.


In the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Amen.
