BASICS: WHAT IS BEAUTIFUL IS BEAUTIFUL AND WHAT IS UGLY IS UGLY | nationalsalvation.net

It is natural for children to be highly aware of genetic endowments (they notice differences immediately), only to be tossed into a public school culture that is on a relentless full court attempt to pacify the issue.

The system is as obsessed with the issue of genetic endowments as the child naturally is. It is just that Political Correctness expresses this obsession inversely. Were it not so, there would be no need for so much Political Correctness on the issue.

There is a fraud in esthetics that goes like this: "Nothing hath beauty that does not have some strangeness of proportion".

Of course, the opposite is true: The very essence of beauty is precisely in the lack of strangeness of proportion.

Beauty cannot be defrauded.

That is also why there is more to Orwell's maxim, "Freedom is being able to say two plus two equals four" than its literal meaning.

What is beautiful is beautiful and what is ugly is ugly.

No amount of deceit and lying can change that fact.
