Culture War
Many from both the right and the left bemoan the state of the American culture today. Whether it is the lack of positive images in TV, movies, music, politicians, sports figures, police in schools and more, freedom and morality are discussed as being in conflict with each other. Benjamin Franklin once wrote on the subject: "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need for masters." This should ring true to you today as we debate not only our eroding culture, but the role of government in our lives. Are culture and the need for more government control more connected than we realize?

Be thankful! Freedom is a blessing, it is not bestowed on us by government.

from The Gray Area:

On Thanksgiving Day 2019, when we should all be giving thanks for the many blessing of our lives, we are forced to hear many voices who try to inform us that we have no right to be thankful. That our thanksgiving is based on our oppression of others, and not on a humble and righteous respect for the blessings of our lives.

Watch this short video by Dr. Larry P. Arnn, President of Hillsdale College. It should put the those arrogant voices of revisionist history to rest and instill in all of us the purposeful nature of a true respect for those things that we hold so dear.

Happy Thanksgiving!
