Fight for Freedom

It is easier to fight for freedom than to preserve it, and the children of World War II vets passed judgment on their fathers during the 1960s and 1970s. 

Somehow I feel my generation is responsible for the children of the lost decades who rejected most of the values and liberties we fought for and many died to preserve. Blood-bought freedoms are seldom cherished by those who have not suffered or fought to preserve them.

Upside Down Politics

Getting back to the southern border, it perfectly symbolizes the bifurcation of our society. We’re told there’s a health emergency. We’re told we can’t open our businesses or attend weddings or funerals. Yet at the same time, every day, thousands of people pour across the southern border, test positive for COVID, and are then driven to a nice hotel and put up there at taxpayers’ expense.

We Need a Moral Society

We want a society in which we are free to make choices, to make mistakes, to be generous and compassionate. That is what we mean by a moral society - not a society in which the State is responsible for everything, and no one is responsible for the State.

Abortion: Advancing Women’s Rights?!?

Humanity sees abortion as an advancement of women’s rights, but in actuality, it ultimately leads to the devaluation of both women and human life by eliminating the true philosophical foundation of where our equality comes from Scripture, specifically, the Trinity. While men, women, and children may not be positionally equal they are by nature equal.  Just as the Father occupies a greater position than the Son, and the Father and Son occupy a greater position than the Holy Spirit, they possess the same nature and are co-equal, co-eternal and co-powerful by nature. Humanity’s attempt at creating an egalitarian society ­– as now defined by progressives ­– will only lead to tyranny. Again, if our rights and laws are not determined by God they will be arbitrarily determined by man.

Sexual Perversion in Grade School?!?

School districts in America are talking about revising their curricula to cover transgender issues from grade school on. Now, I went to an English boys’ school, and we were expected to pick up sexuality on our own time. In those days people would have looked puzzled if you had said, “We’re going to have to cancel geography or Latin, because we need to put gay studies in there.” These days, instead of going off behind the bike shed during recess to learn about sex, kids need to sneak behind the bike shed to do a little bit of closeted geography or closeted Latin. It’s completely backwards. And yet what do we hear from most conservative politicians? That it would be nice to offer people a tax cut!

Critical Race Theorists Are Like Nazis

The Nazis decreed theories and creative works off limits because they believed that ideas could not be separated from the race of their creators. Critical race activists agree that theories and works carry the race of their creators in their intellectual DNA. The Nazis banned some works over ‘Jewishness’ while critical race theory activists seek to ban them over their ‘whiteness’.

Critical Race Theory is Racist and Lacks Reason

Critical race theory’s defenders insist that it’s an academic movement, that its proponents are experts, and that it just wants to discuss its ideas, but it operates like a theocracy, silencing and suppressing opponents, critics, and even insufficiently radical supporters. Its entire rationale is built on denying that anyone can legitimately disagree with it or that debate is even possible. A movement that dismisses reason and objectivity as forms of oppressive whiteness has no interest in dialogue, only in terrorizing its way to power as racial nationalists seek to do.

Government Needs Honor

When there is a lack of honor in government, the morals of the whole people are poisoned.

What Socialism Does

Socialism rewards laziness, stifles competition, and restricts individual liberties. Under socialism, the corruption remains largely unchecked because it is more difficult to discover and uproot; it is next to impossible to prosecute. The bureaucrats who dictate where the money goes are the ones who make the laws and reward themselves. No wonder even the poor under capitalism fare much better than most of the poor in socialist countries.
