It Takes a (Certain Kind of) Village

One of the advantages socialists have these days is the poverty of our political culture, especially as it pertains to our (lack of) understanding of the rights they are in the process of stripping from us. Those nobly seeking to escape the servitude into which we are rapidly slipping, drawing from a conceptual toolbox withinContinue reading “It Takes a (Certain Kind of) Village”

Rescuing our Rights

As previously noted, theories of “systemic racism” currently in fashion constitute the latest leftist ruse to rob citizens of our most cherished rights. Once we concede that anyone can be treated as guilty, or awarded the equivalent of damages, and all without a trial, then the rule of law is abolished, and we have theContinue reading “Rescuing our Rights”

Without a Shepherd

Shortly after escaping from slavery, Frederick Douglass found himself in New Bedford, Massachusetts.

Though the sudden and systematic suspension of our natural and constitutional rights that has been perpetrated in the past yearContinue reading “An Overabundance of Caution”

When Cephas was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. Galatians 2:11 “The Great Reset” is the brainchild of Klaus Schwab, “a German economist and founder of the [World Economic Forum], an annual gathering of high-level business and political leaders that since 1971 has usually met inContinue reading “Withstanding Cephas, Standing With Peter”

Big Business’s Daily Exercise in Tyranny

In his Notes on the State of Virginia, Thomas Jefferson expounds the evils of slavery. In addition to the grave injustices slavery inflicts on its victims, he notes the corrupting influence this institution has on the so-called masters: The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, theContinue reading “Big Business’s Daily Exercise in Tyranny”
