The Future of Liberty In Post-Coronavirus America

In light of all this, we must understand, according to John Adams that “Liberty must at all hazards be supported.” It’s worth noting that what the Democrats advocate is virtual ‘house arrest’, or martial law ― transforming America into some manner of garrison state indefinitely on lockdown. Some demand President Trump to assume virtual dictatorial powers that only have precedence under a fore-mentioned Adams (Alien and Sedition Acts) and Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War. While the Trump administration intends to ‘roll out’ the economy in stages by early May, perhaps the greatest lesson in all this is none other than Attorney General Bill Barr’s call to relax what he termed ‘draconian’ social distancing restrictions in about three weeks. While acknowledging there are “Generally speaking… occasions where liberties have to be restricted during certain emergencies such as war [and] [i]n this case, a potentially devastating pandemic,” government has a duty “to be balanced; whatever steps you take have to be balanced against the civil liberties of the American people and it cannot be used as an excuse for broad deprivations of liberty.” Given the grave infringements by certain state disproportionate to the federal government, here, federalism must prevail; for “The only maxim of a free government,” according to Adams, “ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty” — including skepticism for the globalist class who on one hand, seek to help mankind endure the humanitarian crises they intentionally create.

The Monastery of the Mind and ‘The New Patriotism’

Conservative scholar Victor Davis Hanson introduced the metaphor of ‘the monastery of the mind’ in his column for National Review — a self-imposed exile by the average American from the brutality of postmodern politics ‘into mental mountaintops’. Here is where ‘dreams of the past and fantasies of the future’ can alone be conceived and imagined, unscathed…

Net Neutrality Turns Free Speech into a Public Utility

People in their ignorance believe that Net Neutrality authorizes government to prevent privately-owned Internet service providers and search engines from forming technocratic cartels who then engage in censorship. Few however understand the more dangerous truth, that under Barack Obama, all control over the Internet was, through Net Neutrality, handed over to the global regulatory body…

Without Barack Obama, There Would Be No President Trump

The night of November 4, 2008 will eternally stand the test of time as the one pledge kept by then President-Elect Barack Obama: Change. As America’s first black president’s open animus towards white people drove his agenda, he also was first to implement policies grounded intellectually in a “who’s who” among the feckless 1960’s Frankfurt School’s ideological strata. Through…

The Dangers of Free Trade Agreements Through the Eyes of Heidi Cruz

High school students were once taught the economic principle behind the French term laissez-faire, or “to let be”. Free market economics evolved from centuries of observing trends in the intercolonial trade within the British Empire and others known as mercantilism, where protectionist tariffs were placed on commodities from markets outside colonial domains to preserve imperial interests. Whether it was mercantilism…
