When Authors Are Authoritative

25-01-2010 23:48

It is not mere coincidence the word authority takes command from the word author, or a group of authors acting as a united force.

This authoritarian reality is true irrespective of whether people put their faith in law, religion, articulated ideology, or any other form of persuasive power. Yet there is little doubt that the most effective form of authority, if believed, is that which speaks fore an endgame result of lasting spiritual finality—namely those clerics, that is how their personalities, claim to speak for an ultimate power of religion, and the ego-will of God, Yahweh or Allah.

24-01-2010 17:57

Local people believe that loopy nazi John Coyne may have shot out his own pub windows in a bizarre attempt to smear anti fascist activists. Drunken Coyne has been at the centre of a political row and complaints from neighbours regarding his behaviour in the pub and his decision to let neo nazis hold meetings there.
