Cupid is a Casuist Whose Lurking Thought is Socialist.

Sensing opportunity to exploit human misery, clever people with insidious designs emerge to mold ‘the new man’ in the name of blind, selfish ‘love’ ― a love self-serving, often secular; or, in the case of an aspiring theocrat, the politicization and revision of religious doctrine beyond recognition — all characterizations of ‘the casuist’, shooting arrows like Cupid come Valentine’s Day.

The Russo-Turkish Rivalry: Prelude to a Third World War?

The Russo-Turkish rivalry is not new, nor is Syria’s ties to both Russia and Turkey and before that, the progenitor of both nations, the Roman Empire (both in Rome itself and later, Constantinople). It emerged in 1676 over Moscow’s thirst to establish a warm-water port on the Black Sea, in Crimea, as well as the region comprising of modern Ukraine west of the Dnieper River, and would follow with conflicts in 1688 and 1689. Though these early conflicts ended in defeat for the Russians, by the war of 1695–96, Tsar Peter the Great’s forces successfully captured the fortress of Azov. It was here the Russian Empire’s design for territorial expansion to provide additional buffer zones and sea lanes into the Mediterranean by way of the Bosporus Strait (dividing Constantinople and Europe from Anatolia) began and, by 1878, ended with the Ottoman Empire on the brink of total imperial collapse. The rivalry, even after the two empires’ collapsed following World War I, remains alive and well, and on the brink of war over the civil war in Syria, and a potential confrontation with NATO.

The World Since the Fall of Rome and Constantinople, Part Three: The Harlot and the Beast Colonize the Americas, 1453-1689

And what can be said of the fall of Spain in 1588? England’s victory over the Spanish Armada signaled two major changes: At the expense of Spain’s empire (which as a result of the Armada’s destruction, fell into a long decline) was born the British Empire, the largest the world has ever known, and immediately gave heart to Protestants across Europe. The storm that smashed the armada was seen by Philip’s enemies as a sign of the will of God. Many Spaniards blamed the admiral of the armada for its failure, but Philip, was not among them. But far more important was that, within 20 years, England’s first permanent settlement at Jamestown established the first settlement of what in 170 years would become the new United States of America. To further add salt into the gaping Spanish wound in 1591, the realm of Aragon rose against Philip’s rule. Philip’s military campaigns created severe financial problems and by 1596 Spain was bankrupt. All this misfortune for Spain prompted Philip to remark that “It is impiety, and almost blasphemy to presume to know the will of God. It comes from the sin of pride. Even kings, Brother Nicholas, must submit to being used by God’s will without knowing what it is. They must never seek to use it.” 

The Big Tent of Minorities Has Fallen Somewhere Under the Rainbow

According to Karl Marx, “Society is undergoing a silent revolution, which must be submitted to, and which takes no more notice of the human existences it breaks down than an earthquake regards the houses it subverts,” and therefore, “The classes and the races, too weak to master the new conditions of life, must give way…The chief mission of all the other races and peoples — large and small — is to perish in the revolutionary holocaust.” 

Now, it seems to be tasting the rainbow, and force-feeding the rest of us in the process.

Twenty-Five Points Every Conservative Should Understand

The scales of justice as they originate from the minds of men are all subjective in truth through their nuanced biases. The word of God is the lone impartial source for all that is, for life being imperfect, it therefore is wise to understand that custom reconciles us to all things, and God is the Creator. If that custom is based on the foundation described by Christ while standing on the rock during the Sermon on the Mount, it is the lone natural safety net one ever needs: through Christ alone can man do all things. But the true scales of justice lie in weight with the Lord who, through Jesus Christ, will vengeance be had against the lawless. Every secular humanist is an imperialist sharing a vile eurocentric vision for an international postmodern order, and yet cannot deviate entirely from his Judeo-Christian cultural imprinting. Thus a prosperous nation must also be a righteous nation, one balancing moral righteousness with the acquisition of legitimate wealth and prosperity. I thus offer Twenty-Five Points, primarily a synthesis of biblical and classically liberal themes in context, as constructive suggestions for securing America’s conservation of its cultural, racial, and ethnic identity on the basis of quality, not avarice.

Game Over: The World is Finished. Democracy Cannot Help Us Now.

In echoing Christ’s Sermon on the Mount during a June 16, 1858 address in Springfield, Illinois, Abraham Lincoln declared that the United States of America, as a house divided, cannot stand. In that heated Zeitgeist of antebellum America, the 49-year old future president did not believe America could endure as ‘permanently half slave and half…

Why Stalin Crushed Hitler in the Great Patriotic War

On September 1, 1939, Adolf Hitler ordered the invasion of Poland in an egregious breach of the Munich Agreement from one year earlier. At the time, Western Europe’s two great imperial powers (Britain and France) still maintained hope that an answer from Berlin as to the motive behind the invasion might aid in deescalating tensions…

“Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out” to International Free Trade Proletarianism

Fast-forward to the 21st Century, nearly 30 years after the fall of the Soviet Union and international communism, and America finds herself facing an existential threat from both within and throughout. She is more godless today than any time in her history: her people, corrupt, mouthing ’empty, boastful words’, whose elected leaders, “by appealing to the lustful desires of the flesh,” seeking their 30 pieces of silver as “they entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error” granted through the false doctrine of worldly freedom, “while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for ‘people are slaves to whatever has mastered them.’” Over time, America tolerated too much, expected too little, and in the name of ‘civil rights’ and declarations of the rights of man and the citizen, turned away from its Judeo-Christian by becoming first lukewarm and lastly, divided between God’s sheep and wolves seeking to devour them. As science gradually erodes the role of the church in American culture, what can be said of godless scientists has never rang truer: “A dog returns to its vomit,” while “A sow that is washed returns to her wallowing in the mud.” (2 Peter 2:22)

Identifying ‘The 68’ers’: Hollywood, the Counterculture, Cloward and Piven and Free Trade Proletarianism

Markus Willinger, a grad student of history and political science from Schärding, Austria at the University of Stuttgart, published a manifesto in 2013 entitled Generation Identity: A Declaration of War Against the ’68ers. The term ‘68ers’ refers to the postmodern philosopher Jacques Derrida’s belief that the year 1968 was the phase of transitioning the counterculture movement into…

The Orthodox Church and Holy Russia Since the Bolshevik Revolution

Whether Kirill paints Orthodox Russia as a bastion of true faith besieged by the false values and secular immorality of an increasing godless, pagan West, his words are deeply appreciated by both the church and state as evidenced by the West’s embrace of homosexuality through transgenderism and same-sex marriage. Now well into the third millennium, it is ‘Holy Russia’ that again must confront an increasingly Godless, decadent West as it had with Napoleon. And now it is Putin, not Kirill, warning that “Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values. Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan.” Thus it is irrelevant to haggle over whether Putin and his oligarch inner-circle literally believe in the religious rhetoric since they act as if they do. What must be examined is whether the solidly Orthodox foundation undergirding this new Russian nationalism also ensures that powerful right-wing ideologues like Alexander Dugin will happily rally around Putin and his not-so-ex-KGB clique. In digressing, the survival and indeed, flourishing of Christianity against all odds in the USSR is acknowledged by most of the international community, including many Soviet citizens. But killing people in the name of equality is not the same as attempting to kill God; one cannot kill an idea or basic moral principles taught by Eastern Orthodox Christianity having dominated the Slavs for over 1,000 years. Whether or not Western Europe, as formerly dominated by the Catholic Church, continues to secularize under a left-wing liberal agenda weaponizing political correctness to perpetuate a climate of terror to usher in a Utopian world ‘equality’, one matter is certain: God outlasted the atheist Soviet Union and the occultist Nazi Germany.
