The Neighborhood’s Predominant Family Structure

From an October 2018 article:

A child’s access to—or failure to achieve—the American dream is closely related to his or her neighborhood’s predominant family structure, more so than parental race, income, or education level, according to a study published last month.

The One Supreme Asset of the National Life

President Theodore Roosevelt:

“When all is said, it is the mother, and the mother only, who is a better citizen than the soldier who fights for his country. The successful mother, the mother who does her part in rearing and training aright the boys and girls who are to be the men and women of the next generation, is of greater use to the community, and occupies, if she only would realize it, a more honorable as well as a more important position than any man in it. The mother is the one supreme asset of the national life; she is more important by far than the successful statesman, or businessman, or artist, or scientist.”


Logic is Gone

Jon Rappaport:

A hundred fifty years ago, at least some Americans recognized that all serious discourse depended on the use of the faculty called Reason.

Formal debate, science, and law all flowed from that source…

When Manners are Universally Corrupt

“Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt.”

~Samuel Adams


Public Liberty Will Not Long Survive

“Revelation assures us that ‘Righteousness exalteth a nation.’ Communities are dealt with in this world by the wise and just Ruler of the Universe. He rewards or punishes them according to their general character… Public liberty will not long survive the total extinction of morals. ‘The Roman Empire,’ says the historian, ‘must have sunk, though the Goths had not invaded it. Why? Because the Roman virtue was sunk.’ Could I be assured that America would remain virtuous, I would venture to defy the utmost efforts of enemies to subjugate her.”

~Samuel Adams to John Scollay of Boston, April 30, 1776


Communist Propaganda is Meant to Humiliate

“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”

Theodore Dalrymple


B Logically Follows From A

Selwyn Duke:

The connection to transgenderism should be obvious.  The feminists spread notion A, “that the sexes are the same except for the superficial physical differences.”  Then transgender activists came along and merely espoused B, a corollary: if you change the superficial physical differences, you can be the opposite sex.

You can draw a straight line from one to the next — B absolutely, logically follows from A.
