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 […]

Shifting the Goalposts

by Perry D Foster
As any athlete will tell you there’s no point in playing a game if the goalposts shift and the rules keep changing. Somehow this fundamental fact of life has escaped the world of politics. In that world, the goalposts are continuously moving and the only object of the game is to win at all costs. Advantage Left  In the eternal battle between Left and Right, one side seems better at this game than the other. It isn’t because they have a better argument, or are more intelligent, it’s because they are craftier. No doubt about it, the Left have the […]

It’s Not 1968 Anymore

by Perry D Foster
For some reason I will never understand, people love the 1960s. There’s something about the decade that they worship. Millions of people still embrace its values, defend its leftist ethics, and ape its revolutionary culture five decades after it has passed. Why? 1960s: A Decade Gone Mad  Part of the reason may lie in responsibility. People hate it, responsibility that is, and the 1960s gave them the opportunity to be irresponsible for the rest of their lives. Let’s look at that. The 1960s gave us a legacy that, although fondly remembered by some, doesn’t have much to recommend itself. People […]
