Adulterous Fidelity & Homicidal Humanitarianism

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. She's put the miles on, but you won't find much rust on that chassis! She's a battleaxe nonetheless. It's not as if I strayed to 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. But there was so much more to it than that. 

I did it for the Greater Good. I did it for love. It's true. 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. You may also thereby betray your half-baked morality tunnel. Homo sapiens has evolved. The species has emerged from the Dark Ages. Dogma now takes a backseat. The human drama is made of a richer fabric today.  

Any student of (court) history will tell you. Sometimes you have to violate your principles to advance your principles. That's the only way to advance your principles.  

What is taxation if not a violation of property to advance the institution of property? What is quantitative easing if not a perpetration of monetary fraud to advance a sound currency? What is war if not murder and mayhem to advance humanity and civility? 

The anti-principle runs up and down society. Take America's Greatest President. Abraham Lincoln censored newspapers, confiscated handguns, shelled New York to quell anti-draft riots, intercepted the mail, imprisoned dissidents, deported an U.S. Congressman from Ohio after he delivered an anti-war speech on the House floor, and sicced the U.S. Army on the Maryland State Legislature to bar it from voting on a secession resolution. 

Lincoln waged war on Southern civilians. He killed about 50,000 of them, a good portion of them slaves.  

Then came Give 'Em Hell Harry Truman? Did he ever. He nuked tens of thousands of innocent civilians to death. He did it to save lives. 

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

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."
