If you will not have God . . .
you should pay your respects
to Hitler or Stalin.
– T. S. Eliot
When you take your atheistic-nihilistic axe to the roots of a tradition 2500
years old, you should expect something to fill the void. And the odds of the
new thing being BETTER are zero.
. . . You thought you could live off Christian moral oxygen, but once you cast
off Christianity in your “grand liberation,” you cut off the air supply.
And now it’s running out.
Sorry you have to breath poison, but this is what you made room for.
So why . . . would you think that, after you told us all that God and rights
and morality were ALL B.S. that people wouldn’t just start imposing THEIR VALUES BY FORCE?
THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS. THAT’S WHAT ALWAYS HAPPENS.
— Eve Keneinan
Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government:
When this support is taken away, the constitution of a free
society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins.
U.S. Founding Father
In The Federalist, James Madison called the rage for equality ‘a wicked project.’ People differ and rewards differ—that’s the essence of both liberty and justice. No nation that rewards effort, talent, inventiveness and luck can even pretend to cherish equal outcomes. In an inventive and dynamic society, equal (even relatively equal) incomes can be achieved only by abandoning liberty for tyranny. –Michael Novak
So long as the Self is temporal in space and time, nothing preceding birth, nothing beyond the grave, it follows quite necessarily that the perpetuation of the best possible state of being is the only end worthy of pursuit in an otherwise brief and brutish existence. And this ultimate purpose consists, unequivocally, of a fourfold pursuit:
1. To prolong existence
2. To maximize pleasure;
3. To minimize pain; and finally
4. To ensure by any means necessary that nothing may compromise the pursuit.
It is only too easy to see why the pursuit of power is logically inexorable to this purpose. Power is, by definition, the means by which one’s interests are secured, which applies as much to the Self as it does to the State. And if Ultimate Power does not reside in the Kingdom of Heaven, it falls upon the Self to claim it on Earth, which is the very drive of self-deification . . . the first crime in Eden. In God’s absence, the only pursuit worthy of existence is power. In a word; God is power, or power is God…
The conclusion I would like to draw from this thesis [is this]: that without the Law of Heaven, the Law of Earth is but the Law of Power, and that consequently the Secular State will always be characterized by the oppression of its own people and war with every other people.
It would not be amiss to begin by pointing out that the logical ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼outworking of this has been played out time and again in history, culminating only recently in the two most militant and genocidal regimes ever known to the human race… substantiating that long-maintained theory of the theologians; that those who scoff the notion of Hell are usually the first to institute a Hell on Earth.
Utopia, The Secular Delusion
The West is on the verge of collapse created by its own hands. Between good and evil there is an irreconcilable contradiction. One cannot build one’s national life without regard to this distinction. We the oppressed people of Russia watch with anguish the tragic enfeeblement of Europe. We offer you the experience of our own suffering. We would like you to accept it, without paying the monstrous price of debt and slavery that we have paid.
(1918 – 2008)
