Chaos Abounds

Every section of our life has fallen to unprincipled chaos as the soul of our nation is hollowed. When the noise is stripped away there is a very simple binary position of each fundamental issue, based either on Western Enlightenment thought of individualism, freedom, and reason (the foundations of the formation of our great country) or a statist, collectivist, controlling central government. The following topics should be viewed absent of political party or affiliation and in honest context of what America represents.

Foreign Policy
Pro-American Interests of America first
Anti-American Political globalism

Economy
Pro-American Capitalism
Anti-American Socialism

Politics
Pro-American Individualism and freedom
Anti-American Collectivism and totalitarianism


Street Violence
Pro-American Rule of law
Anti-American Rule of men

Racial Hegemony
Pro-American Individual accountability and motivation
Anti-American Group tribal identity and entitlement

Justice Department
Pro-American Bill of Rights with a blind judiciary
Anti-American Living constitution and a two-tiered system

Education
Pro-American Teaching one to think, scientific method
Anti-American Indoctrination, social justice

Words and Meanings
Pro-American Clarity in language with systematic concepts and concretes
Anti-American Linguistic manipulation with flexible subjective definitions

History
Pro-American Context and perspective to understand the past
Anti-American Revisionism consonant with a narrative

Family
Pro-American Core parental values
Anti-American Allegiance to the State

Spirit of the Nation
Pro-American Tolerance and independence
Anti-American Intolerance and tyranny

Psychological Sense
Pro-American Confidence and self-esteem
Anti-American Anxiety and despondency

Gender Identity
Pro-American Biological reality
Anti-American Emotional feelings

Border Policy
Pro-American Rational systematic immigration
Anti-American Unregulated open borders

Speech
Pro-American Freedom of speech per the 1st Amendment
Anti-American Censorship and political correctness

Cancel Culture
Pro-American Freedom to express ideas
Anti-American Forced repression of opposing views

Government and Corporations
Pro-American Separation of State and the economy
Anti-American Fascism and crony capitalism with State influence

Government and Medicine
Pro-American Individual choice regarding one’s body
Anti-American Mandates and lockdowns

Media
Pro-American Distinct difference of verifiable news and opinion
Anti-American No accountability for what’s reported as facts

Religious Freedoms
Pro-American Freedom of belief without coercion
Anti-American Any religion that promotes violence or theocracy

Police
Pro-American Protection of citizen’s individual rights
Anti-American Centrally controlled police state

Military
Pro-American Defense from foreign attack and transparency
Anti-American Military Industrial Complex and secrecy

This is not about democrat/republican, liberal/conservative, left/right, but what has and should constitute the DNA of our country as intellectually formed by the Founding Fathers. Western thought is characterized with the concepts of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, together with the necessary corollary of private property. “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” are the embodiment of rational patriotism whose freedom has fostered innovation, productiveness, and flourishing, unmatched in the annals of history.

    Thanks. different issues will affect different people at different times. Their beliefs needs to be challenged for them to take a clear moral position and we can only change one mind at a time.

      Beliefs are the most difficult to change. Couched in emotional comfort. Morris Massey created a video lecture on values development in 1976; What You Are Is Where You Were When. He asserts 95% or more of a given personality is developed through 3 stages of seven years (arbitrary). After that it requires a Significant Emotional Event to (SEE) and perhaps understand that which was more or less evident. Hmmm...objective reality of an experience.

      When encountered with staunch belief, contrary to objective reality, I've been expressing to the other party; you need not believe what I offer, yet it is something you cannot avoid, so bear with me and think about "this" for a while. The real burden is upon me to bring awareness/involvement and then an evaluation process that is reflective of where the others "are" at present, compared to my experience. The entire dynamic is one of relationships and choices. That's LIFE.....literally the simplest expression.

    I listened to the beginning of a Molyneoux interview yesterday titled, "Christianity or Communism". Now...don't tune out yet. The title grabbed my attention as did the start of the interview. I'm NOT arguing for Christianity here. But, I've learned to listen to everybody - whether I like it or not. And, I'm a better man for it. There is this dichotomy that seems so obvious it's upsetting. Perhaps it's because of what I call the "all or nothing fallacy". "I don't want my child to take all 36 vaccines by the time they are two years old..." "OH YOU'RE AN ANTI-VAXXER!!!" (That's the first example I saw 15 years ago.) Anyway...great post Tavolino

      Thanks, and the philosophical fundamentals of Christianity and Communism are ironically identical. I'm with you that we need to assimilate all information and that's my struggle with the vaccine. To Jab or Not to Jab, that is the question, especially at my age.

    Those people who have a jackass as their mascot have the same ideas. How stupid can you get? Socialism/Communism has never worked in this world. What makes them think they can make it work now? Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
