Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from experience than from research and more from science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. The Floatplane book is out there. I am currently working on Hippocrates a History of Medicine and Globalism. Enjoy!

Western Virtues and Truth

 How soon we forget. For the Western world truth is the highest order of good. The Greeks listed honor, courage and loyalty as equals. The Christian ethos adds love and forgiveness. They all hinge on truth. Propaganda, censorship, political correctness, fact checking, existentialism and exclusion deny, distort or contradict the truth. These are sad times for our culture. I hope we can regain a sense of the Western virtues, of truth and of ourselves.
