Z Man on Oligrachy and the Theory of Egalitarian Collectivism

The nation-state was the recognition that human identity groups were the basis of human organization. A stable country like Great Britain had a common language and history. Identity groups like Welsh and English were sublimated to the British identity. Even so, they had their own cultural spheres that were tolerated and respected by the whole.Continue reading “Z Man on Oligrachy and the Theory of Egalitarian Collectivism”

The Life Cycle of a Swamp Creature

From American Thinker: It doesn’t take Nostradamus or Carnac to figure out how the next two years will play out for Wyoming’s lone Congressional representative Liz Cheney. It simply takes a little observation of — and interaction with — the Swamp.  As an outside the beltway sometimes political operative and consultant, I’ve had the unhappinessContinue reading “The Life Cycle of a Swamp Creature”

Darkness at Noon

“Our Press and our schools cultivate Chauvinism, militarism, dogmatism, conformism and ignorance. The arbitrary power of the Government is unlimited, and unexampled in history; freedom of the Press, of opinion and of movement are as thoroughly exterminated as though the proclamation of the Rights of Man had never been. We have built up the mostContinue reading “Darkness at Noon”
