Against All Dogmas

History is awash with cases of cruelty and absurdity in the service of a dogma or orthodoxy—the mutual slaughter of Catholics and Protestants during the Thirty Years War, the denial of heliocentrism by the Church hierarchy, the Holocaust, the imposition of historical materialism onto Soviet science, the killing fields of Pol Pot—the list is endless. Behind every great indecency and base idiocy is a dogma waiting to be exposed by truly liberated minds.  Contra omnia dogmatia—against all dogmas—and against all dogmatists!
