By |2016-10-13T16:00:56-06:00February 7th, 2014|Categories: Culture, Government, Language|Tags: |

Is Coke’s multilingual Superbowl commercial another milestone in the progressive march toward multiculturalism? With the exception of playing music together from the written page, perhaps nothing permits perfect harmony among men as much as being able to speak the other’s language. That is not to say that we cannot achieve harmony with others absent [...]

The first talk by Russell Kirk biographer, James Person, tells of horror, terror and the frightful kidnapping of Russell Kirk’s wife.

President Obama buttered up the American taxeaters with his syrupy State of the Union address on Fat Tuesday night by tabling a massive stack of new spending proposals that are selling like hotcakes with folks who will never have to pick up the tab. If enacted, these proposals will pancake employers, batter investors, and [...]

President Obama’s Inaugural Address: Decoded and Heckled

By |2013-12-19T10:47:50-06:00January 22nd, 2013|Categories: Barack Obama, Politics|Tags: |

Albert Jay Nock made famous the device called the Oxometer which is “a device to be installed wherever there is conversation or oratory going on, and the idea is that it automatically separates the bull from the solid substance of the discourse, leaving the latter as a residuum.” If Nock were alive today to [...]

It has now been several weeks since we imaginative conservatives woke up to the nightmare that President Obama had been reelected. It is time we wake from our delusional daydream for a future conservative order. It’s time we realize it’s morning in America again and that we have been blind to the glaring truth [...]

A Chestertonian Thanksgiving

There haven’t been many writers who exuded gratitude more than G.K. Chesterton. One could assemble a lovely article simply by stitching together his best insights about being humble, grateful, gracious and adventurous, so that’s just what I’ve done. Perhaps folks who are fretting their family get-togethers because of tenuous, tender tensions with their relatives [...]

By |2014-01-15T14:04:07-06:00October 26th, 2012|Categories: Capitalism, Civilization, Conservatism, Edmund Burke|Tags: |

‘Mob’ is an interesting word because of its dual meaning.  It means not only ‘organized crime’, that is, a small group of men working corporately and criminally in their own self-interest, but it also means a large group of rancorous, disgruntled people rioting for special interests they share in common.  This irony is particularly [...]
