Is the Future Hungarian?

by Perry D Foster
Around the world, populist nationalist movements are rising. It shouldn’t surprise anyone. For decades now the popular image of a global world order taking care of us because we can’t take care of ourselves has been promoted everywhere. It grew out of many sources, all of them liberal or left leaning. Even the original Star Trek T.V. series promoted this idea. Sometime in the future there would be an Earth Authority, part of a United Federation of Planets in which everyone obeyed a central galactic authority. Don’t get me wrong. I loved the series, but I’ve come to deeply dislike […]

Why the “Far Right” Might Not Be

by Perry D Foster
  Every political movement has its extremist element. The Right had the Nazis. The Left had Marxist Leninism. Every part of the political spectrum can be distorted and used for evil purposes. But this doesn’t mean every political ideology is wrong. It does mean, however, that they can be manipulated by others for political gain. That’s what’s happening in Canada and the U.S. today. The Rise of the “Alt Right.” Who profited ?  During the later stages of the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign the public suddenly began to hear about the “Alt Right.”Actually, this term had been used for some […]

The Most Important Issue in this Election

by Perry D Foster
   All the political parties in the upcoming election are talking about the economy, the environment, tax cuts, foreign policy and so on. But one issue we don’t hear enough about is the erosion of our rights and freedoms. If we lose them, then it won’t matter whether we have elections at all. Our democracy will have disappeared.  Recent Events are Disturbing  If you’ve been following the national news, you probably remember some of the incidents I’m about to describe. The federal government told us we had to agree with their views on abortion, gay marriage, and euthanasia if we […]

Are You a Dissident?

by Perry D Foster
Average citizens don’t think of themselves as dissidents. They’re too busy for that. Most of the time they’re hard at work raising families, making ends meet and serving others. This is probably most true of conservatives and social conservatives. Why? Because they are usually the ones who join service organizations, attend church, help with community projects and back humanitarian causes. They are family oriented and hardworking, and it is no exaggeration to say that they are the bedrock of Western society. That’s the way we’ve always thought of them. Are Social Conservatives  Dissidents? But that might be changing. Social conservatives […]

What 1940 Can Teach Us

by Perry D Foster
On June 4th, 1940, prime minister Winston Churchill gave the most stirring speech in the history of the English speaking world. In it he called upon his fellow countrymen to fight for their nation. He told them to fight on the beaches, in the landing fields and in the streets, and never to surrender. He reminded them that if the British Empire were to last a thousand years, men would remember them, and that this moment in their long and glorious history would be remembered as their “finest hour.” A False Sense of Security  But the reality of the situation […]

Can You Recognize the Good?

by Perry D Foster
 Western Civilization is at a critical point. Why do I say that? It’s not because we are going through unprecedented political turmoil, although we are. And it’s not because we are experiencing a massive struggle between globalists and nationalists although, again, we are. It’s not even because of the cultural civil war between conservatives and liberals. It’s more because we now show signs of being unable to distinguish good from evil. Mainlining Evil Practices  What do I mean by that? I mean that our era is exhibiting a truly disturbing and terrifying quality. We are mainlining evil. That may sound […]
