Progressive Boot Camp

Timothy Birdnow

A thought occurred to me the other day, which does actually happen to me now and then; the whole of modern culture, the political correctness, the way the left approaches the rest of us, is very much a kind of boot camp for communism. The purpose of military boot camp is to break down the individual, to wed him to the group, to get him to believe things and do things that are clearly irrational, and to get him to obey orders unquestioningly. In the military this… Continue

Pagedale Mo.; a Model Progressive City

Timothy Birdnow

What is a free society? This is no idle question, because your definition of a free society will determine how society will be structured - and ultimately what life will be like for the citizenry. The old Soviet Union saw freedom as a function of material benefits, meaning freedom meant "freedom from want", "freedom from fear", freedom from poverty" - something that made for an all-encompassing state and a python-esque society that supplied some of your basic needs… Continue

The Police and Progressive Law

Timothy Birdnow

Yesterday a local radio personality here in St. Louis (Dave Glover) asked the question "why do so many people in our audience hate the police". It's a fair question; there are many good and noble police officers and they are enforcing our laws. But many people are quite unhappy with the police, and there are good reasons for that.

Here are three:

1. A policeman in Louisiana forced his way into a man's home and arrested him, refusing to tell him… Continue

The Boston Bombings; Death by Multiculturalism

Timothy Birdnow

What's in a name? Names are chosen and not a natural characteristic, like hair color. Names bespeak the beliefs and thinking of the parents. Keep that in mind when considering the Bostom murderers.

Dzhokhar is the alternate name for the capital of Chechnya (also known as Grozny) and the Tsaernaev boy is therefore named after the Chechen capital. Tsar is the Russian word for Caesar, so his name, dealt with somewhat creatively, is Joker Caesar. Odd; Caesar…

Barbarians at the Gates of Sandy Hook

Popular culture has made murder, rape, mayhem, hatred, and violence "cool"

by Timothy Birdnow

The recent massacre at an elementary school in Connecticut (the ironically named Sandy Hook - it’s been a bad year for anything named Sandy) has, predictably, brought a chorus of calls for gun control and to double down on Progressive social reform schemes.

It appears no tragedy, no matter how horrendous, is to be allowed to “go to waste” as Rahm Emmanuel would say.…

Washington Times: 'Path is Clear' for America's Transition to Socialism

I don't know about you, but just reading the title to this article sent a chill up my spine and made my hair stand up on the back of my neck!

The article begins by saying:

President Obama has succeeded in transforming America. The constitutional republic is dead. A socialist empire has been born. This is the true…

Other Reflections on the Two Party "Situation" . . . . Part 1

First of all, we want to thank Ruth Fennell for her great blog post about her reflections on the Tea Party vs. the Republican Party, as well as everyone else for all the thoughtful comments that ensued.

Although Publius MMX is associated with a group called "Recovering Federalist," (recoveringfederalist.com) that has much broader political interests, completely consistent with the Tea Party generally, as part of that group this element of Publius MMX was personally involved in at… Continue

What happened to my generation?

"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it." This quote by Thomas Paine has deeply affected me and driven me through my life. When I was very young the favorite part of my day was when my father used to sit me on his knee and read from a collection of books called "Little Journeys to the Homes of Famous Men." If you are not…
