Here’s the trouble with trying to cover all the crazy **** that’s happening, these days–you just can’t keep up. After I wrote this little essay and submitted it to Newswithviews, any number of equally daft or even crazier stories came along.
*Sigh* I just want to get back outside, back to work on my book. I’m hurtling toward a climax, but I don’t know what that climax is! Going on past experience, the Lord will show me when I’m not expecting it.
Among the distinguishing characteristics of this benighted age we live in is the extinction of our sense of shame. You know–that thing that makes it possible for us to live like human beings. That thing that holds us back from committing certain excesses of bad behavior.
I can’t stress this strongly enough: we can’t just do anything we feel like doing to our culture and expect to get away with it.
Kill the culture, and it will kill you back.
Sometimes talking to people about public education is like talking to tree stumps. Our culture is melting down around us, largely due to the malign influence of public schooling, it’s turning into a garbage-heap right before our eyes–and still they send their kids to public school.
But what can we do, but to tell the truth?
You are letting kooks and perverts “educate” your children.
It will not turn out well.
Since I wrote this, a reader, “John Jr.,” has alerted me to some further information about WordPress deciding to ban Fellowship of the Minds. This argues that WordPress succumbed to heavy pressure from the fake news giant, The New York Times. I haven’t had time to check that.
Leftids don’t believe in free speech. The only freedoms they believe in are bogus “rights” invented just the other day: the “right” to enjoy any kind of fornication that your heart desires, the right to sponge off normal people, and the right to silence anyone who isn’t you.
Today’s the day! Well, supposed to be, anyway–all the newspapers in the land, in “a coordinated editorial attack” on the president elected by the American people. We rejected their candidate, so they hate us.
It seems to be the nature of these left-wing grandstand plays to fizzle out pathetically. We’ll see.
There are churches and “Bible scholars” out there who’ll say and do anything to win the approval of a Godless world.
It wouldn’t be so bad, if they had only their own souls to worry about; but how many people are they leading into error?
Well, it’ll make an interesting defense on Judgment Day. “But Lord! I was only doing what was trending!”
I thank Newswithviews for letting me talk about my own books from time to time. Advertising is hard to come by.
I hope I haven’t put the rest of you off by doing this. If any of you out there enjoys a close personal friendship with Rush Limbaugh, and can get him to talk about Bell Mountain to his 20 million listeners, I’d appreciate it.
You really do wonder why these leftids don’t just light out for Venezuela, Somalia, or some other Third World paradise, rather than try to create one here.
But they can’t do it unless they can get the rest of us to want to wreck our country.
P.S.–This morning I have to get my car inspected, and who knows how long that’ll take? Another one of those “sit there and vegetate” exercises.
