A Bad Choice.

August 15, 2014

“Genie, you’re free.”

Matt Walsh: Robin Williams didn’t die from a disease, he died from his choice . It’s a tragic choice, truly, but it is a choice, and we have to remember that. Your suicide doesn’t happen to you; it doesn’t attack you like cancer or descend upon you like a tornado. It is a decision made by an individual. A bad decision. Always a bad decision.

knew how to keep these groups under control.

Instead of working with the old buzzard, we listened to the Europeans, and participated in an insane war to have him removed. By the time we decided that Qaddafi was the devil, he was cooperating with us in the battle against the Islamists, had given up his involvement in international terrorism, and abandoned his WMD program. He was like an old repentant Mafia chieftain who sought to make points with the FBI.

The Nuge on Obama:

Just last month, he called the president a “subhuman mongrel” in an interview with Guns.com.

“I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the acorn community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America.”

Yes…We Are Doomed

February 4, 2014

When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing; when you see that money is flowing to those who deal not in goods, but in favors; when you see that men get rich more easily by graft than by work, and your laws no longer protect you against them, but protect them against you … you may know that your society is doomed.

We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission.

MLK was Right About Jesus

January 20, 2014

“You’d better know Him, and know His name,”

and know how to call His name. You may not know philosophy.

You may not be able to say with Alfred North Whitehead that He’s the Principle of Concretion. You may not be able to say with Hegel and Spinoza that He is the Absolute Whole. You may not be able to say with Plato that He’s the Architectonic Good. You may not be able to say with Aristotle that He’s the Unmoved Mover. But sometimes you can get poetic about it if you know Him. You begin to know that our brothers and sisters in distant days were right. Because they did know Him as a rock in a weary land, as a shelter in the time of starving, as my water when I’m thirsty, and then my bread in a starving land.  – - Martin Luther King, Jr. – Why Jesus Called A Man A Fool

The Real Story and History Behind South Africa

December 7, 2013

Reagan Freed South Africa (Frank Friday)

7DEC

Reagan Freed South Africa – Frank Friday

Nelson Mandela is being rightly eulogized as a great force for peace and freedom. Though a deeply flawed man, his moral growth allowed him to voluntarily relinquish power, much the same as George Washington. This is an example being taken to heart on the African continent, which may now be fitfully entering a more hopeful era, in contrast to the 50-year bloody disaster of post-colonialism.

.

What won’t be talked about much is that this was only possible because the West won the Cold War and allowed disillusioned Marxists like Mandela in South Africa (or Gorbachev in the Soviet Union) to move on and become small “d” democrats. This was a startling reversal from the 1970s, when Soviet-backed forces were on the move everywhere in Africa, even fielding a Cuban mercenary army in Angola and elsewhere to conquer their own Communist empire.

In Rhodesia, the white government (which never instituted an apartheid system) was able to peacefully transition to a multiracial democracy in 1979, only to be sold out by Jimmy Carter and (to her everlasting shame) Margaret Thatcher, who insisted the terrorist Robert Mugabe be put in power before sanctions were lifted. Mugabe quickly consolidated a dictatorship which turned that once thriving country into a basket case.

Reagan, however, was made of sterner stuff and no sooner than being elected, was rallying anti-Communists of every color, including those in white South Africa. Reagan deplored apartheid, but he knew the white separatists of southern Africa had taken power because Britain would not defend their political rights and private property during decolonization.

Reagan fought mindless sanctions legislation on South Africa,instead putting forward a policy he called “constructive engagement” to end discrimination and bring about transition to full democracy by working with moderates in that country. This was opposed by the violent and pro-communist African National Congress, which promoted terror tactics and fought bitterly with their black rivals. Many ANC leaders, such as Oliver Tambo, Communist party leader Joe Slovo, and of course, Mandela’s wife Winnie, were merely thugs

Nelson Mandela had been imprisoned since 1962, not for political activity, but for his part in the ANC’s bombing campaign of government facilities. Although unwilling to publicly renounce violence, Mandela was the most thoughtful of the ANC leaders and had long negotiated in secret with the white government. With the end of the Soviet Union and Mandela’s distancing of many of his old colleagues (including his former wife), South African prime minister, F.W. de Klerk was able to work with Mandela on a sensible transition to multiracial democracy while ignoring the most militant ANC members.

In remembering Mandela this week, the left will no doubt attack Reagan on the side (the movie The Butler encapsulates this attitude). But any reasonable examination of Reagan’s policy on South Africa would conclude he was spot on. He understood the real elements at play on the continent, and made the needed time and space available for proponents of genuine democracy to triumph. Of course, he was bitterly denounced as a racist at the time. One of his most shameless accusers was the South African bishop Desmond Tutu. Had this blowhard’s advice been followed, South Africa would have been the same bloody awful, one-party state as exists in Mugabe’s Zimbabwe. Tutu is now, way too late, quite unhappy with Mr. Mugabe.

Fortunately for Tutu and his country, South Africa, for all its many problems, has had a better time of it. And like a lot of countries in the world, this is due in large measure to the courage and foresight of Ronald Reagan.

The Unending Worship of JFK

November 24, 2013

SOME OTHER FELLOWS

 

“The sum of a million facts is not the truth.”
-William Raymond Manchester

I guess I shouldn’t be as amazed as I am at the overwhelming JFK worship across the political spectrum and all ages today.  Seriously, everywhere you turned it was Kennedy love day.  Conservatives were popping out quotes by him about supply side economics and leftists were making bizarre, lunatic connections between Lee Harvey Oswald and right wingers in Dallas.You know who else died that day 50 years ago?  Two literary giants, one far more giant than the other.

 “One believes things because one has been conditioned to believe them.”
-Aldous Huxley

The first was Aldous Huxley, who gave us Brave New World.  Between Huxley and Orwell’s 1984, readers had a pretty comprehensive view of how tyranny could come upon free peoples.  And between the two, Huxley’s frightening view of a possible future is the more plausible of the two.
In fact, its hard to avoid the feeling that Brave New World isn’t a behind-the-scenes view of our lives today.  A people seduced out of liberty by comfort, ease, and order.  The use of chemicals, social engineering, and manipulation through education and entertainment to create a passive, obedient society run by all-powerful statists.  1984 has a single, all-powerful leader, a figure that everyone is commanded to love and obey.  But Brave New World has no face at all to its tyranny, only the population giving up everything to gain comfort, ease, and safety.

I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
-C. S. Lewis

The second figure, and by far a titan greater than Huxley, was C.S. Lewis.  Both men died the very same day JFK was shot.  C.S. Lewis was one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, indeed one of its greatest thinkers.  His writings continue to enchant, amaze, and enthrall readers to this day through the Narnia movies.
Lewis started out a non-Christian, and he was converted by J.R.R. Tolkien, his close friend and colleague.  He, Tolkien, and Dorothy Sayers were part of a writer’s club called the Inklings, where they talked over writing books such as The Hobbit and That Hideous Strength.  Some of the century’s greatest fiction came from that little club in England.
Lewis was one of the best Christian apologists that has ever lived, with a knack of reaching people behind their defenses and making sense out of things they thought were idiotic.  His book Mere Christianity is a compelling piece of argument for Christianity that remains popular and potent today.
Lewis warned the world about what was happening to culture through education in his piece The Abolition of Man and he taught of subjects such as grief, pain, love, joy, and reason with brilliant and easy to access precision.
The loss of C.S. Lewis left the world far, far poorer than that of a politician.  And yet here we are, 50 years later, celebrating a tepid president who couldn’t keep his pants on and almost hurled the war in to WW3 trying to show how tough he was on foreign policy.  JFK got us into Vietnam, folks never seem to recall that.  He was likely to lose the 1964 election when he was shot.
But its him people remember and fixate on, not C.S. Lewis, or even Aldous Huxley.  What a world.

Four Score and Seven Years ago Our Fathers…

November 19, 2013
The Address: Seven Score and Nine Years Ago

LINCOLNSHATS.jpg The top hat worn by Abraham Lincoln to Ford’s Theatre on April 14th, 1865- approximately one week after Lee surrendered to Grant in Appomattox Courthouse thus ending the war.

For Lincoln: Born This Day in 1809 –  “His Truth is Marching On”

To be born an American, or to become an American, you need only know and understand four things that we have written down. Our founding document, The Declaration of Independence. Our agreement with ourselves and our government that specifies and protects the self-evident truths and freedoms of the Declaration, The Constitution. Our national motto:  “In God we trust.” And our credo, “The Gettysburg Address.”

A credo is a short and straightforward statement of beliefs or principles. A credo has no fixed length but lies somewhere between a motto and a manifesto. The most widely known traditional credo would be “The Apostles Creed.”

Although it is not often thought of as such, Lincoln’s brief oration at Gettysburg at noon on that long ago November day is, in all its elements, our national credo. Although shaped as prose fit to be cut, as it has been, into stone, The Gettysburg Address is also a lyrical poem as polished as a crystal prism. Through it, all that we had been up until that day midway through our most terrible conflict passed and was transformed into the multifaceted nation we have become today. And it is still not finished with us, nor we with it.

The Address shows us first how we came into existence as “the last best hope of Earth.” It echoes the opening refrain of the Declaration’s notes of liberty and equality. It reminds us of our original goals of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness;” goals to which our founding fathers pledged their “lives, fortunes, and sacred honor.” It implies that all generations of Americans must, if the nation is to endure, pledge the same.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

The poem then brings the credo into the present. Not just the present moment of November 19, 1863, but all the present moments that came after right up to this very day in November in 2010. Then the argument between Americans had become so pitched that civil war between the contending factions had torn the nation asunder. We have come close to similar passes since then several times, but have — remembering “the better angels of our nature” — always turned aside and found a way to move forward together as a great nation of a greater people. Now may be another such moment; another such turning. Lincoln could not know our moment, but in his credo he indicates his belief that the test of his moment will be passed and that the nation will long endure. He also knows the cost of that test for those who “gave their lives that that nation might live.”

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

From that moment in that long ago November, Lincoln’s credo casts a cold eye on the ultimate costs of liberty whenever men determine that liberty, for themselves and their posterity, is worth whatever sacrifice is asked of them. Out of that vision he tells us what the duty of all future generations of Americans must be.

In the closing of the Address, Lincoln is at once a President, a poet, a seer, and an American. As such, he closes the credo to which all future Americans must cleave. The credo requires us to be constantly renewing the work of liberty. The credo tells us that we — if we are to bear true faith and allegiance to all those who have built, stone by stone, poem by poem, word by word, and life by life, the city on the hill that is America — must always be dedicated to the unfinished work that is always before us. The credo requires that we “highly resolve” to leave our nation in a greater state of liberty than we found it. And to leave our Union entire and intact as “the last best hope of Earth.”

The most successful revolution in history was not the Russian Revolution or the Chinese Revolution. It was the American Revolution. It began more than two centuries ago and it continues to this day. It is not over yet. This is its credo.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
