Crazy World

We live in a wild and crazy world. The Middle East is always one spark away from all out war, Russia and Ukraine, chaos in Africa, protest in France, N. Korea, and of course China.

Interesting that all the NATO leaders may publicly say they are not fond of President Trump, they sure do like to have their picture taken with him. Trump is always the most popular leader at all these events. Could it be they recognize a real leader when they see one?

What we need in this world is more Donald J. Trump and less of the soy boy leaders in Europe. If war broke out or disaster hits, it won’t be France, or Germany or Canada that responds. It will be the good guys in white hats from the United States of America. Pay up, sit down and shut up soy boy.

Freedom and Protest

Protest in Iran, protest in Hong Kong, protest in France, all in the name of freedom and less governmental control. Protest in America by left wing democratic socialist for less freedom and more governmental control.

American press is silent, fixated on a bag full of lies trying to overthrow a duly elected President. Wake up America!

Bill Barr: Religious Liberty Warrior

Last week, US Attorney General William Barr gave an extraordinary speech about religious liberty at Notre Dame Law School. I have not been able to locate a transcript, and only found time to watch it this morning. Here’s a video of the entire thing. The speech itself begins at about the four-minute mark.

The AG begins by talking about the capacity for self-government, meaning not the form of administration of a liberal democracy, but the ability of individuals to master their own passions, and subject them to reason. Can we handle freedom? That, says Barr, is a question that preoccupied the Founders.

No society can exist without the capacity to restrain vice, he goes on to say. If you depend only on the government to do this, you get tyranny. (This, by the way, is what’s happening in China; many Chinese actually support the tyrannical Social Credit System, because communism destroyed civil society and social trust.) But, says Barr, licentiousness is another form of tyranny. People enslaved by their own appetites make community life impossible. (This, I would say, is what we are more endangered by in America today … and it will ultimately call forth tyranny, Chinese-style.)

Barr offers this quotation from Edmund Burke:

“Men are qualified for civil liberty, in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites; in proportion as their love of justice is above their rapacity; in proportion as their soundness and sobriety of understanding is above their vanity and presumption; in proportion as they are more disposed to listen to the counsels of the wise and good, in preference to the flattery of knaves.”

Why is religion a public good? Because, says Barr, it “trains people to want what is good.” It helps to frame a society’s moral culture, and instills moral discipline. No secular creed has emerged that can do what religion does, he says. And by casting religion out, we are dismantling the foundation of our public morality.

“What we call ‘values’ today are nothing more than mere sentimentality, drawing on the vapor trails of Christianity,” says the AG.

Barr took the gloves off, saying that religion is not jumping to its death; it’s being pushed.

“This is not decay,” he said. “This is organized destruction.” He named secularists in academia, media, and elsewhere as figures who are not neutral at all, but have rather inculcated a kind of religiosity in their own project of destroying religion. They conduct their own inquisitions and excommunications for heresy.

Well worth the time to read and ponder.
