DONALD J. TRUMP – Our 45th President

THE TRUMP REVOLUTION

“The times they are a-changin’.”  For the first time since Andrew Jackson, our President is a populist, not a politician.  Donald Trump will prove to be a better President than Jackson, if only for the fact that he speaks and listens—daily—directly with the electorate.  All of them.  Think about it: Ever since the earliest days of his candidacy, Trump has been the headline of virtually every political and other news article.  Every day,  In every media.  Even the mass media who apparently hate him.

Donald Trump is in your face no matter the channel practically 24/7.  If you don’t know who he is and what he stands for, you haven’t been paying attention.  He clearly is not a politician—ask any politician.  If he lies, it’s usually hyperbole and it soon becomes clear what he means, and he

WHAT IS CONSERVATISM? Conclusion

January 18, 2017

THE WAY IT IS, and WHY –

The Case for Conservatism

Our complex culture has inexorably been redefining humanity in its own image, leaving the individual at the mercy of groups, technology and ever-accelerating “social progress.” The tail has come to wag the dog; what we’ve built is running us.

What’s happened was that we have, over the course of time, effectively subverted the natural process in the name of the way we think (or are led to believe) that things are.  The rapid growth of knowledge and technology has persuaded us to delegate the responsibility for progress to groups.  We’ve effectively signed over our own creativity, imagination and ingenuity to others, giving them permission to tell us what to think and accepting what they tell us as the way it is.   Instead of sharing the load according to our ability to handle it, we have

WHAT IS CONSERVATISM?

ETHICAL ISSUES:  CONSERVATISM

Conservatism is not a political issue, nor is what follows a political treatise; it’s more basic than that.  The foundation for conservatism is history and original intent—a return to the basics, ethics being the most basic.  Anyone can do it.

Any society needs a system of rules within which its members can operate to the general benefit. These rules are founded in its values and articulated in its privileges.  The rules of all successful societies including our own begin in ethics and are adapted to the society’s needs and wishes.

Our own rules trace their origin to a paramount need for freedom.  Our laws are founded in a Declaration of Independence from our mother country and empowered by a Constitution written by individuals with a strong moral and ethical base “in order to form a more perfect union.”

THE LIE of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

PC: A Progressive Pathology

9c2353addbb6d43329e3ec28db3294d6_9781627874267PC didn’t just happen…IT’S GOING ACCORDING TO PLAN.

Political Correctness (PC) seemed to be merely an annoyance to those of us comfortable with the truth; we assumed that honesty would eventually prevail over its obvious fiction.  Well, we were wrong.  We failed to appreciate the virulence and potential impact of the Progressive movement—only 15% of the population. The ‘right’ to not be offended has become their trump card.  PC has become the new norm, and we hardly notice it.

THE ORIGINS OF PC

PC may have been an issue in China 2500-years ago.  Confucius observed that the first thing to do to restore a state to health was to call things by their right names rather than use understatement to distort the truth…

…but the foundations of modern Political Correctness are found in Critical Theory, an early-1900s product of Germany’s Institute for Social Research (The Frankfurt School).   Based on Marxist conjecture and underlying thesis that “all history is about which groups have power over which other groups,” its goal was to combine social theory, philosophy, economics and cultural criticism to delegitimize reason in favor of emotion and eliminate the distinction between the individual and the group.  It was a deliberate attempt to promote and spread Communism, nothing less.

THE REALITY of CLIMATE CHANGE

December 17, 2016

THE TRUTH ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE

global_warming_by_teabing1CLIMATE CHANGE IS A FACT. Temperatures are increasing and will continue to increase slowly in the immediate future.  Temperature rise will be minimal (perhaps 1 degree by 2020), accompanied by a slight rise in sea levels (nowhere near destructive) because of melting  (largely) arctic ice.  Floating ice already displaces 90-percent of its volume under water, so the increase in water volume due to melting will be limited to about 10-percent of the melted ice volume.  Antarctic ice is land-based, and its volume is increasing.

Currently Earth is in a (geologically well-documented) interglacial period, coming off a glacial period of the recent geologic past (10-12,000 years ago).  There have been, in fact, several prior glacial periods (and interglacial periods necessarily between); some have influenced mankind, and there’s no evidence that this pattern will not continue in the future.  Earth’s temperatures can be expected to vary in such a dynamic system, and they do. In other words, global warming is currently taking place as is its nature.

ETHICS and RELIGION

Is religion ethical?

Ethics in Religion?

What follows uses as an example the Catholic Church, for no other reason than its author, once a practicing Catholic, is most familiar with it. The same probably could be said of other wealthy denominations—the Anglican Church, for instance…

We hear of churches losing membership and the difficulty of attracting men to the priesthood. We also hear about the poverty, hunger and squalor lived by millions in the Third World and yes, other places as well.

On the other hand, we know about the glory of “Rome” and the vast riches on display at the Vatican, and can only guess at the sumptuous lives of the papacy and its minions who have few to answer to except themselves. The resources of the hierarchy are virtually limitless, and still growing.

But the subject of this short essay is not the diminishing of one of the richest institutions on
