The description of the day is as follows:
International Label Day is celebrated November 21st. This holiday celebrates the beauty of the words we choose to let shape us, the subcultures that we are proud to be part of, and the surprising meaning of the labels we all choose for ourselves!
Upon reflection, there is only one label about which I care passionately.
This may seem odd to people who read my blog and my work, but my life’s philosophy is based on one simple principle: Reality Exists.
That is to say that the world does not drop dead when I close my eyes. The universe has an objective existence which is independent of my perception, and statements made within and concerning this universe perforce have the quality of veracity–they are either true or false, and the truth or falsehood is not determined by the speaker.
A is, and always will be, A. Behind all of the rhetorical games and manifold -ism’s to which mortal flesh is heir is a universe of simple facts that existed before the human race and will continue to exist after us.
“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”
