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?

Abolition and the American Founding

The Wall Street Journal article below is a very balanced piece on our current condition, slavery, and the American Founding. It shows the cultural divide that exist ed then and now. Some, like Brian Stelter on CNN, want us to believe there is no cultural divide, no historic divide, no divide on the righteousness of our founding. But, there is, in reality, a huge cultural divide and it has existed for decades, building in power to this moment.

This divide and cultural disagreement was not created by Donald Trump. His election was the first statement of wait leftists, you are going too far. That shocked the left. Up to that point they had run opposition free and set the debate language, in a misleading and in some cases inaccurate manner, for the rest of the country to accept & submit.

This article by Jason Willick, presents an accurate, detailed and balanced view of our condition, what's at stake and why the left is winning.

Today’s leftists denounce the Declaration and Constitution as pro-slavery. It’s not a new argument, political scientist C. Bradley Thompson says.
