Political Correctness

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…

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...

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 Evolution of the Cancel Pass

The current “Cancel Culture” is one terrible result of the Oppressor/Oppressed Critical Theory tsunami that is sweeping our nation today after decades of preparation, primarily in all levels of our nation’s education system. We were recently told by a friend who is a senior academic at a prestigious Ivy League university about a first year student who was being hounded and “cancelled” by fellow students, professors and administrators for something she wrote when she was fourteen. This woman...

History 2021

History 2021

I wrote the original version of the following story almost twenty years ago, as the second chapter in an anthology of short stories, Ten Lies and Ten Truths. I have rewritten parts of the story this week, to capture the new realities of History 2021 A Story Harrison Gillies sat alone in the teacher's lounge of a prestigious New England private high school grading English essays. Paintings donated by the Art Department, an oriental rug, and a couple of decades' accumulation of furniture lifted...

Irrational Belief Trumps Reason in an Unlikely Source

Irrational Belief Trumps Reason in an Unlikely Source

Bill Gates calls Steven Pinker’s new book, Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress, “My new favorite book of all time.” Pinker’s work is a 453 page, incredibly well researched tour de force on every aspect of life across the globe since The Enlightenment. And almost every page explores the incomparable progress we humans have made during the last 250 years to beat back death, extend life, multiply productivity, equalize rights, increase leisure, and add to...

Collision at Sea: Progressive Experiments and Human Nature

Collision at Sea: Progressive Experiments and Human Nature

I suspect that this post will make some readers angry. That's not my intent, but it's probably inevitable, because I want to ask some politically incorrect questions which no one seems to be willing to take on. This year in the Pacific Fleet there have been three collisions and a grounding of combatant ships, a terrible record previously unmatched by the U.S. Navy. A quick search online will bring up several articles about the details of each incident. The two recent, tragic collisions at sea...

Should I Model Jesus or Darwin?

Should I Model Jesus or Darwin?

As many of you know, I recently spent several days in London with a group of wonderful Believers who are originally from Nigeria, at an event for Joshua's Army.  We were joined by a pastor from Lagos, Nigeria, and by a pastor in the Nigerian community in London, both strong men of God.  Our weekend discussion was about how husbands and fathers can better model Christ with our wives and children. While there were many beautiful facets to the weekend together, the one I want to focus on for this...

Tolerance, Modesty, Chivalry

Tolerance, Modesty, Chivalry

In this season of graduation speeches, I thought it would be good to revisit three important words which we rarely hear in public use, and whose original meanings are therefore fast disappearing. I will start with tolerance, defined as a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward those whose opinions, beliefs, practices, racial or ethnic origins, etc., differ from one's own. Notice that tolerance requires me to give others the right to believe and to say what they want, though I am not...

Election Concerns 2016

Election Concerns 2016

This year's extraordinary election is less than two months away.  Like most Americans, I am not pleased with the choices we have before us.  With all of the negative generalities coming from both sides, I decided to try to put on paper specifically what concerns me. I really am not looking to start an argument or to defend any candidate--please consider this to be a personal interim report, subject to change as more information becomes available in the coming weeks. Concerns I have about...
