I'm very happy to have landed in the Gulch... Didn't think it would be necessary this early. I'm the author of Locke in America: The Moral Philosoophy of the Founding Era and Everything You Have: The Case Against Welfare. I have a PhD. in political science and was an assistant professor at Seton Hall University (NJ). No worries. I've followed Ayn Rand since the 1960's and attended Dr. Peikoff's courses in NYC in the 1970s. I know exactly where I am and that, in the current cultural climate, there's no other place to be.

    Good to have you Jerome. The world does seem to be getting progressively crazier each month. I hope is just the topping of a cycle due to a temporary rejection of reason.

      I fear our countrymen will remain complacent and keep takking the blessings of liberty (2000 years in the making) for granted. When their back are against the wall, they may well wake up I just hope it won't be too late.

        Me too.
        When things are good the crazies can afford to be crazy. Many have lots of spare time or are paid by government not to work. When things start to become bad, the majority of people start to back off, dig in and reevaluate things. Most of the remaining crazies then become lit up like Christmas trees. The blame game will ensue. Capitalism is always a target.

          I think the task is not to address or even think about the "crazies." It's the "forgotten men and women" who normally pay no attention to politics. But with their back againsst the wall, they may be ready to listen to reason - just maybe.
