this blog develops the idea that a theory of man in history can be worked out around the theme that man's self expression in culture and society is motivated by the desire to find meaning in man's existence. i proceed by summarizing seminal works that provide insights into the dynamics of this process, with the view that the culmination of this exploration was reached with god's self revelation in jesus. i'll hopefully also explore the developments that followed this event.

It turns out that a cousin of my father helped work on the clinical trials of chloroquine in the later years of World War II. The drug itself was discovered in 1934 by Bayer, but was ignored for a decade. The US was looking for an effective anti-malarial for the troops in the South Pacific theater and conducted the clinical trials. Small world, I guess. And no wonder I'm so qualified to comment on this pandemic. :-)

Most churches are voluntarily cooperating and the state has no business putting it's jack-booted thugs on the citizens' necks.
