Degrading Our Heroes

by Perry D Foster
  I recently came across a book that both shocked and angered me. It was entitled “Churchill and Empire: A Portrait of an Imperialist” by Lawrence James. I almost dropped it right there in the bookstore. First, it was obvious what James was trying to do and, second, I hadn’t realized just how bad things had gotten. These days there seems to be a never ending parade of liberal progressives and radical leftists insulting our history and degrading our heroes. It’s become  commonplace. But this was too much. Winston Churchill. Hero or Evil Imperialist? The attempted suggestion was obvious. Churchill […]

Why I will Never Be Postnational

by Perry D Foster
I cherish my identity. To put it more accurately, I cherish my identity as a man, a husband, a son, and a Canadian. There are other things that I am proud of, and have no intention of apologizing for. My pride in these things, and my desire to protect them, are normal. Both my identity, and the freedom to express my pride in at, are part of my heritage. They are nothing to be ashamed of. Our Governments are Against National Pride. But that is not what we are being told. Along with millions of other people of the West, […]

The Great War

by Perry D Foster
Only one war in human history has ever been called “The Great War.” The terrible struggle of 1914 to 1918 decimated Europe and swept away the old order. It ushered in an era of new and terrible weaponry, mass casualties and an appalling disregard for human life. When it was over nothing would ever be the same. Any notions of chivalric idealism had vanished in the death, mud and blood of Passchendaele and the  Somme. When an armistice was signed the world heaved a sigh of relief and tried to put the pieces back together again. Another Great War Now […]

Government or Regime?

by Perry D Foster
There is a terrible point in the affairs of a nation when government, obligated to safeguard the rights of its citizens, crushes those rights and becomes a regime. It’s difficult to know exactly when this begins, but there is always a moment when it becomes obvious to all that the nation they once loved has metastasized into something else. Small Events, Innocuous Decrees. It might begin with small events and seemingly innocuous decrees. Perhaps the hypothetical nation we are speaking of, a place where free speech was once cherished and defended, now forbids its citizens to criticize a certain belief […]

The Institutions I Love

by admin
The traditions of the Western world are based on time honoured institutions. There is an old joke that goes something like this: A man says “Marriage is a great institution.” His friend says “Yeah, but I never liked being in an institution.” I never felt that way. In fact, after being married for 28 years, I can honestly say that they have been the best years of my life. Not My “Partner.” My wife. When I describe my marriage to others I don’t exaggerate its qualities. I don’t need to. My wife is a good person and we have a […]
