Essential Articles from Salvo on Communism and the State

25gardner State Purposes Utopian Creep & the Struggle for Human Rights & Freedom by Terrell Clemmons

. . . Consider that this Ameritopia’s Leviathan-sized federal government has become the nation’s largest creditor, debtor, lender, contractor, grantor, insurer, health-care provider, regulator, and pension guarantor, to name only a few of the many extra-constitutional roles Uncle Sam has assumed. Worse, an alarming segment of the population has foregone self-reliance and individual industry in favor of dependence on the rest. In such an environment, those traits which represent the best in the nature of man—initiative, drive, and selflessness—inevitably languish and falter, while, as Shin Dong-hyuk warns, those which represent the worst—indolence, envy, and predation—thrive. . . .

Statism’s Deadbeat Dad Jean-Jacques Rousseau by Terrell Clemmons

. . . mochilas kanken baratas The expressions of Rousseau’s ideas took different forms in the different nations to which they spread, but one thing they had in common was the elevation of the state to the role of supreme liberator of the people and ultimate authority and caretaker over them. Whereas the original American understanding of liberty valued and recognized inherent human rights that the state may not transgress, Rousseau’s view of liberty was the diametrical opposite. As Nancy Pearcey explains in How Now Shall We Live?, to Rousseau, “freedom meant liberation from the forms and institutions of society—family, church, class, and local community.” And the state would and should be the liberator. “Each citizen would then be completely independent of all his fellow men,” she quotes Rousseau, “and absolutely dependent on the state.” . . .

Solitary Refinement How One Man Found Freedom Inside a Communist Prison An interview with Fr. Roman Braga by James M. nike sklep Kushiner

. . . nike air max nettbutikk I suffered eleven years in Communist prisons. air max pas cher They put me in prison because I was a teacher; I was teaching religion and the Romanian language in high school. Nike Air Max 2016 Heren Zwart When the Communist government came into power, they immediately said everyone in the schools would have to interpret everything in the Marxist, materialistic way. But I didn’t want to lie to my students. It was not only me; many thousands of other Christians and intellectuals in Romania did the same. We wanted to educate young people to be themselves the way that God created them, to know who they were. Personality is something given by God. Each one is unique. God never creates standard types, like bars of soap coming down the conveyer belt in the factory. It may seem that I exaggerate, because I came out of Communism, where the individuals were just numbers, like bricks in a building, all the same, and they don’t have any other function. . . .

Truth vs. New Balance 1500 m?skie State It Takes Courage to Confront False Ideologies by H. Lynn Gardner

. asics gel lyte 5 mujer negras . . Among the false ideologies of the West are secularism, feminism, and sexual libertinism.

Che Guevara The Making of a Marxist Martyr by Terrell Clemmons

. . . Although Che had left Cuba under a cloud two years earlier, Castro responded to the news of Che’s death by declaring a three-day period of national mourning. “If you wish to express what we want our children to be,” he told a crowd in Havana’s Revolution Square, “we must say from our hearts as ardent revolutionaries, ‘We want them to be like Che!'” From then on, Cuban schoolchildren began their day saying, “Pioneers of Communism, we will be like Che!” It makes perfect sense that Castro would want everyone to be like Che, for Che served Castro to his dying breath. It also makes sense that Cuban schoolchildren would be forced to pay tribute to this would-be role model. They have no choice. What doesn’t make sense is why anyone in the free world would follow suit. . . .

On “Deeply Held Beliefs”

bruce-springsteen-north-carolina__oPtFrom The Daily Caller:

A petition on Change.org has garnered nearly 500 signatures in support of Bruce Springsteen’s decision to cancel an April 10 concert in Greensboro, NC. “Bruce Springsteen has a right to his deeply held beliefs. He has a right to control his business and refuse to do business with those he disagrees with.”

It appears that the boss can get away with denying his services to those with whom he disagrees based on his “deeply held beliefs” that men and women NEED to be able to share a toilet. Not so much for those who are on the other side such debates. Do you remember Memories?

. . . Maglie Phoenix Suns People of conscience would do well to reflect on the attempted takedown of Memories Pizza.

  • Crystal clearly told the reporter that Memories would never deny service to a gay couple who came in to eat. But in response to a pointed question, she did say, “If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no.” As if people routinely call upon pizza joints to provide their wedding reception dinner. It was clearly a setup—a sting interview cavalierly crafted to get multiple page views; good-faith reporting be damned.

  • It isn’t, and it really can’t be. But their objection to judgments like Pace’s reflects the assumption, held by many, that only their opponents are trying to “impose their morality” on society. In fact, it is in the nature of their own advocacy to do so. .
