Advice

Look both ways before crossing the street. Be sure you understand what the machine is intended to do, and how, before you turn it on. Good cologne does not cancel out wearing dirty underwear. Penny-wise is sometimes pound-foolish.

Contact

To contact the web-master for the Liberal Arts Mafia pages about terms of use, or about any other issue, email electrophoresis@technologist.com. Please be aware that we only rarely check our email at this account, due to the volume of SPAM.

Judgement

There is nothing which will excuse you from using your judgement, from having to think for yourself. If you fail to think for yourself, preferring instead to let others do your thinking for you, then you have already made a choice.

Links

This site is link intensive, containing many links to sources outside of the liberalartsmafia.com domain. Once you link to another site, you are subject to the policies of that site.

It should be understood that links expire. Certain links on the liberalartsmafia.com domain may not work.

Order

Order is not the opposite of chaos. Rather Order is a system of rigid societal control which allows those with power to hoarde resources and stiffle dissent. The enforcement of order is the underlying basis of capitalist consent, whereby the transaction of goods is called “ordering”.

Paradoxes

Deal with it.

Personal Information

This is discussed at depth in our privacy policy.

Philosophy

Question, ponder, reflect. A strength worth having is a strength worth using. Humanism has been the light of progress for more than 500 years, catapaulting Western Civilization from the dark ages to the present. Yet now the ideals that made Enlightenment possible are under attack by those who would use fear as a mechanism of societal control. Humanism is the ideal of living the “good life”. The good life is the life that is worth living. Question, ponder, reflect.

Plagiarism

Neither the presence of plagiarism of legalistic material from other, commercial “terms of use” web pages nor the presence of completely irrelevant material should be taken to affect either the enforceability of or any decision to either enforce or not enforce the Terms of Use present on this web page.

Propaganda

You are encouraged to copy, distribute, and spread those images presented on this site under the designation of “Propaganda”. In other words, copy, use, burn, manipulate, share, squander, love, and spread to your hearts content.
