Be Still

Be Still

I don’t have an erudite solution to a pithy issue this month. I really don’t even want to look for one. Perhaps like you right now, I find myself pulled down by events and headlines. The world is unhinged, and the headlines are not good. Evil seems to be on the rise. And not just bad actions, like the terrible revelations of sexual abuse by trusted leaders in the Southern Baptist Convention. No, Evil associated with human beings choosing to kill other human beings. Putin’s unprovoked attack on...

A Challenge To Woke Progressives

This month’s post will probably be labeled by many as right up there with Don Quixote's "Impossible Dream", but I still have faith in people, and so I'm going to write it anyway. It's addressed to everyone, and particularly to Woke, secular progressives, who think the Judeo-Christian foundations of our nation’s laws and principles are not important today. They are. Please follow this argument: The terrible, destructive impact of Evil, always present but usually doubted by modern thinkers, has...

Ukraine and Russia

When our astronauts landed on the moon in July, 1969, I was a 22 year old graduate student at London School of Economics on a one month language study in Leningrad, USSR. While our student group was there, we saw all the deprivations of the Soviet command economy, and we also saw young people beaten up by the KGB simply for talking with our group. Twenty-five years later the commercial real estate industry launched in Russia, and I participated. Fast forward to the early 2000’s, when Russia...

You and I Will Die

Are you and I ready to die? Today? Do we ever even think about it, and about what death will mean? Probably not, at least until some condition or event suddenly inserts the reality of possible death into our everyday life. See, I even wrote “possible” death, as if it’s not inevitable. I should have written “possible imminent death.” Because, unlike in all previous human history, today it’s easy to “set death alongside retirement, pensions, and inheritances as matters that should concern us...

What Are Your Kamalafications?

There’s a new short-hand term sweeping through the nation’s elite HR Departments, universities, Boards of Education, media, boardrooms and even the military: Kamalafication. The term is the Progressive code-name for someone who should be chosen for an important position based primarily on skin color, gender(s), or Woke awareness. That person should be highly Kamalafied to fill the vacancy because she, he or they will first and foremost push the Progressive Agenda as it applies to that...

We’re Here From The Government, and…

As addressed in last month’s post, there are many good reasons to dislike Critical Race Theory (CRT), and to work quickly to end its poisoning impact on leadership in our nation’s corporate, education and military's highest circles. One of the least discussed reasons to end CRT is its teaching that Oppressors—Whites, Males, Heterosexuals, and Christians—will never change and will always oppress. CRT’s answer to this “fact” of unrelenting oppression is that governments must step in to solve the...

Racist Purgatory or Personal Redemption?

Critical Race Theory is a lie at war with Christian faith because of its belief in permanent cycles of conflict and oppression. There is no hope for anything better. According to CRT, every white person is always a racist and an oppressor, even if she or he admits the error and actually changes. CRT teaches that racism for whites is as unchangeable as skin color. And the American system is “systemically” racist because it was created for and continues to be run by white people. People of color...

Looking for Truthful Leaders

How does a nation prosper, or even survive, when its leaders are delusional, seeming to believe things that are clearly not true, and then basing policies and actions on these delusions? Merriam-Webster defines delusion as “a belief that is not true: a false idea.”  In other words, a lie. Believing in and acting as if lies are true will always lead to disaster. Truths are what we need. Simple truths, which, as Albert Barnes pointed out, make their own way without needing extra fanfare or fancy...

The Route Cause

I dislike that the Biden Administration is “pivoting” away from the disaster which was and is our Afghanistan withdrawl, killing our service members and Afghan children, and leaving behind tens of thousands who helped and counted on us. My preference would be that every press briefing be required to start with the latest on what we’re doing to help them. But clearly that’s not going to happen. So from the delusional mantra that the Afghan withdrawal was a great success, we’ll turn to the...

The Taliban is Biden Its Time

We are living through an unmitigated disaster in Afghanistan. We created it, and we should all be repulsed and ashamed. And by “we”, I mean all of us. The disaster is worth examining on at least three levels. At the lowest level, on the ground in Central Asia, can anyone imagine a more incompetent, ill-planned, stupid, deadly withdrawal than ordered and presided over by President Biden and his entire senior team, both civilian and military? Everything about it was backwards and defies common...
