Being an individual is often more powerful than joining a crowd
True conservatism, seeks to conserve the good, the true, and the beautiful as an inheritance to the succeeding generations. Conservatism has allowed the West the prosper in the excellence of morality, law, liberty, art, literature, science, philosophy, theology, and politics.
A recent magazine article suggests we should forgive ourselves for what was said while we were “in the dark” about the Chinese Origin Viral Infectious Disease. Okay, go ahead. But there was no reason for anyone to be in the dark about the bug.
News reports told us crazy things. The World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control warned us government was on the wrong track. The first thing that they said was it had a 90% mortality. Then Fauci said we didn’t need masks, and there was no need to get all shook up.
The terms Build Back Better and The Great Reset, sound wonderful. But to question the inference, they also say, “everything you know, everything your parents taught you, that you found good, and you enjoyed in this society, is broken.”
By extension, that means you too. Does that sound logical to you? If we need a reset, or need to build back – doesn’t that say either “build from a different foundation” or “clear the screen and start over?” If you are part of the country, you need to forget all you know and start over, build back, reset, get with the program.
Both Democratic candidates for the President and Vice President her spouting claims of hypocrisy while simultaneously playing hide-the-weenie with even those left-leaning media folk always for them. Mainstream media cannot get a straight answer out of them any more than Trump could in the debate.
The choice of candidates that will shoot straight with America began to weed themselves out. Trump is so many claims about him that even if he was caught with the secretary in a DNA-laden blue dress, you could not separate that out from the many claims that are transparently false. Meanwhile, Harris is hiding a lot of skeletons in her closet and Biden seems to be hiding in a closet taking a nap.
We need our police because we know nothing about safety in America is going to change as a result of the recent social unrest. We are not foolish enough to think all this horror in American cities will have a positive outcome.
We have seen riots before, they do not really work well. Mr. Obama says these riots are not like those of the ’60s and ’70s. I was there in uniform then, and while what the protests are different, the lives that are being disadvantaged if not destroyed are exactly the same.
A modern police agency must have certain things, a court to which arrested persons are referred to guarantee rights, like Miranda, bond, legal representation, and judgment. Usually, there is some sort of jail or holding cell, and then the offender is transferred to a county-level system.
A police department cannot operate without a supportive court system and the will of the city/county elected officials to monitor them. They are, by one definition, the last resort for a community. When a family or some citizens cannot control themselves, the city uses the police. Most importantly, the police are there because the city’s streets, roads, and other delights cannot keep 100% of the people happy.
Human beings must be socialized inside of a family structure. Almost every culture on the planet would agree wholly or in large part to that statement. That is the training for being able to live with others. Animals are instinctual, they have DNA sequences that control what they will become – usually some kind of killer. Even a hungry baby chick can hunt a bug down and kill it, and eat it. To the bug, the chick is a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
The book upon which this blog series is based, Looking Backward, Forward is about government control and pugnacious congressional behavior in the 21st Century. That relates to the Adult Arrested Adolescent or TriA that has become a crisis for the future of the USA.
The TriA is a behavioral disorder that describes how some people in the United States and other countries think. And they think poorly if at all because they have been taught to think with feelings or emotions. That is first-tier thinking, where first impressions, happy thoughts, and colorful images delight the senses. It is not a deeper second-tier analysis that helps us evaluate the worth of ideas, people, and their schemes.
Your potential of having a life full of accomplishment is your ability to be comfortable with uncertainty.

Why do we ignore the risks while blithely swimming in an ocean full of man-eating creatures? Those who are close to the seashore almost completely ignore that risk unless sightings are posted. There is some uncertainty in that – but not a lot — attacks are one in 11 million. But people do get attacked and killed.
There is a big divide over politics today. I have my opinion, you have yours. But those not as familiar with the commonality of political rancor over the ages – it can all be summed up well with what we learned from Dr. Seuss.
Everything stinks till it’s finished.
That true of politics. But the great thing about how
our world has worked out for over 200 years is that when the people get their
wish, not those of one extreme are the other, it smells relatively well in the
