This website offers arguments on a wide spectrum of contemporary issues, social, cultural, economic, legal & ethnic. These support traditional American Conservative views of government, society, history, law, politics, markets & nations--all opinions based upon truth & logic: To this purpose, a Conservative Intelligence Center, an online version of the Conservative Debate Handbook & information on a contemporary American novel, Return Of The Gods (title from a Rudyard Kipling theme in "Gods Of The Copybook Headings.")
The ideological confrontation, we address, pits the individual (responsible for his own material and spiritual well-being, comfortable with sex roles, able to identify with family, race, heritage & nation, while following a path illuminated by the light his Maker gave him) against an array of Collectivist movements. These movements may involve different personalities & use different terminology--often sounding idealistic;--yet are often led by compulsive neurotics or amoral demagogues, determined to reduce mankind to an undifferentiated species: A human ant hill, managed by social engineers at war with history & reason; men & women, who prattle idiotic shibboleths extolling "Social Justice," "Equality," Democracy" & "New World Orders!"
If you do not look to the Federal Government of the United States as a personal problem solver, this site is for you.
If you do not see men & women as competing interest groups, or see all men as inherently equal--or need to pretend that the apparent differences are unimportant;--if you do not feel threatened if some one questions such assumptions; this site is for you.
If, rather, you celebrate human differences, the uniqueness of every man & every woman, of every race & every culture; if you believe in the importance of instinctive sex roles & heritage;
If you believe in the glory of God's Creation, and that each of us is morally & economically responsible & accountable;
If you believe in private rights & private arms, in private sex & traditional values, you will enjoy going forward! Here you will find hundreds of arguments, on scores of subjects, for which the Left has no answer.
This site is about direction not progress--direction in Government, direction in the dynamics of Society. Progress without reference to direction is meaningless. A rat, riding a piece of crating along the curb to a storm sewer, makes rapid progress in a downpour, very little in a drizzle. Indeed, he may have to get off and run on his own power, if the rain stops. He will definitely have to get off the crating if he would change direction.
Mankind, in one form or another, has frequently changed direction. And however denied, it is a given that all that Man has done for good or ill in the past, he can & probably will do again in the future.
The American Revolution had very clear direction. The Fathers set their faces against dependence upon Government, dependence upon a collective, in favor of individual responsibility. Progress, in the American context, was always in the direction of reducing the intrusiveness of Government. And in those first few decades, we became more--not less--individualistic; setting the individual free to solve his own problems; making both State & Federal Union dependent for their very survival on an armed & productive citizenry; with a foreign policy based upon mutual respect, goodwill & non-interference in the unique & internal affairs of other nations.
192 years ago, having achieved the original goals and reached, perhaps, a sort of political & spiritual plateau, characterized by the near unanimous reelection of President Monroe--the principles of the Revolution no longer effectively challenged--we began to lose momentum. Since then, subtly, haltingly at first, latterly (since World War I accelerating into the 1930s) as though caught in a great ebb tide, we have lost all sense of that original direction. We have, as it were, been swept back out to sea, where all the principles that made America work have been called into question; where progress has been redefined in terms of a destruction--one by one--of the very principles that made America unique, that gave her strength & freedom; while our whole social infra-structure is being deconstructed.
This web site is dedicated as a beacon in the night of this induced folly: A light to help those about to drown in a sea of Collectivist madness to find direction: The American direction back to shore.
A constant thread runs through almost all of the comments being made by those who advocate what has been described as a "liberal" position in Internet discussion. It is an implied denial of the significance of individuality; the inherent differences between each of us. Thus the failure of any group or individual always requires someone else to blame. Thus any comment which presupposes a basic difference between people invites an hysterical name calling. Those who defend a traditional culture, which always recognized human differences, are denounced as "bigots, hatemongers" or "xenophobes."
It is this compulsive need to pretend an equality that has never existed any where, which leads to "politically correct" assaults upon our culture, humor, literature & language; to fervid demands for ever more intrusive programs to force us ever deeper into the mold of pretense & delusion; to a public education, which teaches no one; and to the lunacy, called Feminism, which suggests endless conflict between those whose innate differences, in the past, were always a basis for celebration.
