Reparations

国产偷拍视频America is the only country in the world that is exploring the idea of compensation to a portion of its people for  behavior in history by another portion. The innocent people make up around twelve percent and are all African-American; the guilty percentage was minuscule at the time and has disappeared. These are called “reparations”…

The Age of Ideology

国产偷拍视频The Twentieth Century has been declared the “Age of Ideology,” apparently to distinguish it from prior centuries, especially the nineteenth, when rationality, raison d’ etat, balance of power, “white man’s burden,” geopolitics, evolution, industry, hierarchy, monarchy, stability, “cabinet diplomacy,” “national interest,” etc. were governing factors of common life. By contrast, the last century was governed…

Crossroads America

国产偷拍视频While there may be a number of metaphors to define our times in history, one certainly might be “an age of doubt.” For even the casual observer of modern opinion, through the media, politics, entertainment, and even sport, the notion of doubt, uncertainty, and even refusal is both universal and comprehensive in the primary culture.…

Towards a Catholic Nationalism

From the beginning of Donald J. Trump’s quixotic presidential campaign, political and media elites have attempted to browbeat the “dangerous” new nationalist movement like an unruly child. First, it was National Review’s “Conservatives against Trump” symposium, which excommunicated its Trump-voting readers for their infidelity to the dogmata of movement conservatism. Read more

The Eighteen-Year Wound

国产偷拍视频Today marks the eighteenth anniversary of the 9/11/01 attacks, probably the most significant event to “hit” this country in the new century. Most citizens old enough will compare it to Pearl Harbor, and those who don’t, should. President Franklin D. Roosevelt called that day, December 7, 1941, as one that “will live in infamy,” and…

The American Campus: Thought Police

In 1949, the British novelist George Orwell wrote 1984, a mythical vision of totalitarianism based upon the Soviet Union and employing the continuous use of “thought police.” It has turned into reality. The recent American college campus has been overcome by a sociological “attack” that threatens to reverse the traditional character of a “school,” from…

A House Divided

国产偷拍视频Lincoln and the Civil War In 1858, Abraham Lincoln declared for posterity that “a house divided against itself cannot stand.” This reflection, now iconic, is actually both innocent and wrong. Innocent since anything truly divided will collapse, be it a “house” or a nation. Wrong since the American “house” had slavery from the beginning, while…

Liberty vs. Equality

One hates to quarrel with, perhaps, the greatest political document in history, but it is not “self-evident” that “all men are created equal.” Indeed, precisely the opposite is true. Why, then, did the Founders (i.e. Jefferson) put that clause in? At face value, it is ridiculous. No doubt, Jefferson was referring to a much higher…

The Idea of White Privilege

国产偷拍视频In a recent political debate, one participant discussed how to make “our communities stronger.” But after two hundred-plus years of American communities, why are they now in need of “strength”? Her answer: acknowledge “white privilege.” What is she talking about? Privilege By the dictionary, “privilege” is “special rights or immunities.” That, however, begs the question:…

Greenland

Trump wants to buy Greenland: What else is new?

Speculation that President Trump has expressed interest in purchasing Greenland from Denmark has inspired gossip in the media as to how “serious” he is. In history, countries either expand by conquest or by purchase, the former being the most common. Should Trump announce that the U.S. will occupy and seize the island, speculation would undoubtedly…
