Why would an American president bow down to world leaders?   Why is it easy for politicians to stoke hatred for rich, fat-cat CEOs? And why do so many nations around the world hate America, the world’s lone superpower?  read more

Right or Wrong? 

It depends on which side has less or more power.  To those who practice Underdogma, those who have less power can do no wrong - even when they do wrong - and those who have more power can do no right - even when they do right.

Each month, Michael will pick a hot news topic and show you how "right" and "wrong" are determined by which side has less or more powerTo submit a topic, click here.

How do you feel about the rights and wrongs of the vegan animal rights social movement, PETA etc.? - Karen

There is an entire chapter in Underdogma that deals specifically with so-called “anti-human” animal rights crusaders and environmentalists (Chapter 11: Two Legs? Too Bad!: Are Overdog Humans a “Cancer” of the Earth?)

I examine the statements of PETA’s founder who said: “Humans have grown like a cancer. We’re the biggest blight on the face of the earth,” and others who actually call for “the extinction of the species Homo Sapiens would be beneficial to the Earth’s Community of Life” and show you how Underdogma has led some people to make Homo Sapiens the first species on planet earth to override its biological instinct to survive and call for its own extinction (or reduction in numbers) so that other, less powerful life forms might thrive.

You will also discover in this chapter that an eco-Underdogmatist l is now the top science advisor to the President of the United States.  Read for yourself what he had to say about “compulsory sterilization” of human beings, in Chapter 11 of Underdogma.

February 2011
During the media tour for Underdogma, I was interviewed on a Kentucky radio station.  A wonderful older lady called in with a great “Right or Wrong” question.  She said that she grew up in the segregated South and, as an African American, she always felt like she was the underdog-even prided herself on it.  She asked if that was wrong. 

I answered her with a question: “Are you a good person?”  “Yes,” she said, “I go to church, treat people well, and I pride myself on being a good person.” 

And you could tell in her voice that she was a wonderful, wonderful lady.  “Exactly,” I told her.  “That’s what makes you a good person.  Not that you’re an underdog.  You’re good because you are a good person, because you do good things, because you treat people well.  Underdogma throws all that out and says ‘just because someone is less powerful, an underdog, that’s what makes them good.’  It casts aside notions of good and bad, right and wrong, and determines right and wrong based solely on whichever side has less or more power.”  

And that’s what’s so dangerous about the belief system called Underdogma: it undermines our notions of right and wrong.
