Homicidal Humanitarianism & Free Enterprise Socialism & Adulterous Fidelity

My wife found out about the affair. She acts all hurt and confused and humiliated and everything. As if I did something wrong. As if I betrayed her. 

She doesn't get it. The other woman is a coeval (read: she's old as hell). Yeah, she's got a great rack. I admit it. Not much rust on that chassis! But she's put on the miles. So give me credit. At least I didn't pursue a much younger woman. I'm no cad. Cads are interested in one thing and one thing only. 

My fling was different. Lust had something to do with it, sure. I love a great rack. But there was so much more to it than that. 

I did it for the Greater Good. Yes, I know it sounds far-fetched, to say nothing of self-serving, but it's true. I did it for love. Greater love than this hath no man, that he lay down his marital vows--stomp on them, wipe his feet on them, thumb his nose at them--for his marriage. 

How does rocking the wild thing with a woman not your wife strengthen the marital bond? You may well ask. But in that case you only betray your Medieval prejudices. Think of all the emanations and penumbra attending the good life. Don't let yourself get too bogged down in dogma. 

Any student of (court) history will tell you. Sometimes you have to violate your principles to uphold your principles.

America's Greatest President didn't let principles get in the way of his greatness. Abraham Lincoln censored newspapers, confiscated handguns, imposed a draft, intercepted telegraph transmissions, imprisoned Northern dissidents, and sent troops into Maryland to bar the State Legislature from meeting to vote on a secession resolution. He waged war on Southern civilians, killing 50,000 of them, a good number of slaves. He even deported an anti-war congressman from Ohio. 

Lincoln violated the Constitution to save the Constitution. You got a problem with that?

What is taxation if not a violation of property in the service of property? What is quantitative easing if not a perpetration of monetary fraud in the service of sound money? What is war if not murder and mayhem in the service of humanity and civility? The anti-principle runs up and down society. 

Men are endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights. To undermine these rights, governments are imposed on men, deriving their unjust powers from their failure to secure the consent of the governed.  

There’s a surprising amount of wiggle room when it comes to politicians’ commitment to their marital vows and their oaths to uphold the Constitutions. Since we can’t have order without the State, and the State can’t have order without its prescribed disorder, can I do any different?  I have to commit adultery.

Sometimes the statesman has no choice but to violate his oath of office. The office demands strong leadership! We mustn't tie his hands! Not even by invoking the sacred parchment intended to tie his hands! Where would we be today if the chains of the Constitution had bound down the benevolent excesses perpetrated by such visionaries as Lincoln, Wilson, and FDR? 

Strong marriages are the sine qua non of strong families Family is fundamental unit of society. Civilizations unravel without stable families. 

No, no good can come from tying a visionary's hands. Same goes for not tying a visionary husband's hands to his marital vows. Sometimes a visionary husband has to violate his marital vows to uphold his marital vows.

How about Give 'Em Hell Harry Truman? He nuked tens of thousands of innocent civilians to death. He did it to save lives. 

Finally, there's that whippersnapper Paul Ryan. (

Ryan actually voted to approve TARP, and explained in an interview with the Daily Caller in February 2010 that "we were on the cusp of a deflationary spiral which would have created a Depression," and that "if we would have [sic] allowed that to happen, I think we would have had a big government agenda sweeping through this country so fast that we wouldn't have recovered from it. So in order to prevent a Depression and a complete evisceration of the free market system we have, I think it was necessary. It wasn't a fun vote."
