The liberal’s professed faith in reason is little more than a mask for vanity and ego-worship. Without the solid foundation of Truth — without recognition of God, Natural Law, and the objective morality that comes with it — the process of reason becomes a mere exercise in the justification of personal whims, wants, and desires.
“But it is impossible to find the answer to the eternal question: who is to be blamed, who led us to our death? To explain the actions of the Kiev cheka only by the fact that two thirds were Jews, is certainly incorrect.” – Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Editor’s Note: The following is a rough excerpt from the introduction of a forthcoming book on Traditionalist Conservatism on which the author is working currently.
When encountered by a typical moderne, the traditionalist conservative causes confusion, for he does not square neatly with popular, post-industrial conceptions of Left and Right. The reason our typical moderne cannot fit the traditionalist conservative into a neat, contemporary ideological box is simple: At his core, the traditionalist conservative rejects all ideologies, for ideologies are simply secular religions which replace Christianity with faith in a political ideal or principle, and the traditionalist conservative in the West, being a Christian, or at the very least accepting the Christian soul of Western civilization, has no need to do so.
It is becoming increasingly apparent that significant swathes of the American public, especially the young, are proponents of socialism and communism. Or at least what they believe socialism and communism to be, anyway.
Of course, anyone remotely familiar with history and human nature knows that equality can exist only at the expense of liberty — or worse. Or, as Rush put it, “the trees are all kept equal by hatchet, axe, and saw”.
Unfortunately, due in large part to the Left’s ironclad grip on academia, the modern Western public has been kept largely blind to the full horrors of the Bolshevik menace. This is particularly troubling for this writer, whose family suffered greatly at the hands of the USSR.
