The Loving Society versus Rocket Science

By |2021-04-14T16:43:02-05:00April 14th, 2021|Categories: Civil Society, Community, Joseph Pearce, Love, Senior Contributors|

Love, as the foundational principle of a loving society, is analogous to the arithmetic which forms the foundations of rocket science. Today, however, we live in a society that does not know the basic laws of love. Our society must once again learn to love, turning its back on pride, or it will destroy itself [...]

Baseball Goes For Woke

By |2021-04-27T20:52:19-05:00April 6th, 2021|Categories: Baseball, Civil Society, Stephen M. Klugewicz|

In a sadly predictable development, Major League Baseball continues to go the way of the Woke, demonstrating a contempt for its audience and the players' and owners' narcissistic need for self-validation through virtue-signaling. This past weekend I tried listening to an Orioles game for the first time since swearing off baseball last year because of [...]

Maoism in America? The Uses of the Capitol Hill Riot

By |2021-04-22T09:27:16-05:00March 10th, 2021|Categories: American Republic, Civil Society, Liberty|

Decades of the practice of Maoism in China have shown that when government opponents are branded as "insurrectionists," and when the powerless masses act only out of fear, civil society won’t survive. This is a trajectory with which we Chinese are all too familiar. From "deplorables" to "enemies of the people"—this is a trajectory with [...]

Biden’s America: One Nation or Us Versus Them?

By |2021-01-23T13:45:34-06:00January 22nd, 2021|Categories: American Republic, Civil Society, Joseph Biden, Pat Buchanan, Presidency|

Joe Biden's inaugural address was the most confusing, contradictory and incoherent ever delivered from the steps of the Capitol, reflective of the mind of its author and the state of the Union he now leads. "We have met the enemy and he is us," said Walt Kelly's cartoon character Pogo, half a century ago, about [...]

“Tomorrow Belongs to Me”: When Yesterday Is Cancelled

By |2021-01-12T01:00:11-06:00January 11th, 2021|Categories: Civil Society, Joseph Mussomeli, Politics, Senior Contributors|

The only time you can be really sure that both the Republicans and Democrats are wrong is when they all agree with each other. This is certainly true in the recent case of poor Representative Mary Miller, besieged and berated on all sides for saying something that very few of us would ever really dispute. [...]

Institutionalized Obedience: Americans & the Lockdowns

By |2021-01-12T10:56:12-06:00January 11th, 2021|Categories: American Republic, Civil Society, Liberty|

This year, against the backdrop of pandemic, the level of obedience manifested in many Americans stunned me: Why do Americans, the rugged individualists, obey edicts issued at the whim of “King” Newsom or “His Majesty” Cuomo, without a questioning of the legitimacy of those mandates? They remind me of my fellow Chinese who have been [...]

Whither America After the 2020 Election?

By |2020-12-11T11:14:38-06:00December 11th, 2020|Categories: Civil Society, Pat Buchanan, Politics|

Though secession is unlikely, a secession of the heart has already taken place in America. We are two nations, two peoples seemingly separated indefinitely. Can a nation so divided as ours, racially, ideologically, religiously, still do great things together, as did the America of days gone by, to the amazement of the world? When the [...]

Neighborhoods: A Forgotten School of Family & Social Flourishing

By |2020-12-02T15:48:40-06:00December 2nd, 2020|Categories: Civil Society, Civilization, Community, Family|

The neighbourhood can give one a greater sense of a geographic and social whole. It can serve as a bridge between the home and the larger society. The limited control we have over who our neighbours are reflects the normal conditions of a large society. How well do you know your neighbours? How much does [...]

Civil Disobedience, Homestyle

By |2021-03-02T16:58:21-06:00November 16th, 2020|Categories: Civil Society, Community, Patriotism|

The ideals upon which America was founded are now forgotten by many. Yet these same ideals are buried in these songs of patriotism and faith. By singing these songs, we instill the truths contained in their words in our hearts. We learn once again to have faith in God, to gather and build community within [...]

Can a Disintegrating America Come Together?

By |2020-11-13T15:22:49-06:00November 3rd, 2020|Categories: American Republic, Civil Society, Pat Buchanan, Politics|

Today, we are divided over ideology, morality, culture, race and history. We are divided over whether America is the great nation we were raised to revere and love or a nation born in great sins and crimes. On the last days of the 2020 campaign, President Donald Trump was holding four and five rallies a [...]
