“Sir Roger Scruton, a formally trained political philosopher, talks about his life and the events he’s witnessed that led him to conservatism. He first embraced conservatism after witnessing the leftist student protests in France in May 1968. During the ensuing riots in Paris, more than three hundred people were injured. Scruton walked away from this event with a change in worldview and a strong leaning toward conservatism. Visits to communist- controlled Poland and Czechoslovakia in 1979 cemented his preference for conservatism and his distaste for the fraud of communism and socialism, initiating a desire to do something about it. From thereon he dedicated himself to helping organize underground seminars for the young people oppressed behind the iron curtain.

In Ameritopia, author Mark Levin points out that Leftist-Progressive ideology strives to create a utopian society. But utopia, Levin asserts, is incompatible with the ideals of individual liberty as formulated by the American Constitution.
The schism between the goal of achieving a so-called perfect society where everyone receives an equal share of wealth, and a society where success is based on free enterprise and individual initiative is delineated in the most fundamental roots of Judaism: The story of the Garden of Eden.
The astute blogger Bookworm Room has just published an important essay by our mutual friend Wolf Howling about so-called climate change, a leftist religion that seeks to enforce its dogma on a global scale. The climate-change movement brooks no dissent; its green inquisition will not hesitate to destroy the reputations and livelihoods of any who might dare to question its fanatic doctrines.
Make no mistake about it: When the Soviet Union collapsed, the true believers of Marxism-Leninism migrated to the various eco-movements that seek to consolidate power and redistribute wealth on a global scale.
We are entering a true crisis. Left unchecked, the eco-fascists will succeed — with the enthusiastic collaboration of the Democrat party — in installing a tyrannical authority that will render the United States Congress and the Constitution mute.
It’s not often we report good news.
Last week, Seraphic Secret reported on the totalitarian mayor of Houston’s immoral and blatantly unconstitutional attack on the First Amendment.
Naturally, radical leftists scurried to her defense with the fiction that this was really about illegal signatures on a petition. But when you read the NRO article below, you understand that Mayor Parker’s subpoenas were a Soviet style move to undermine freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and due process.
Postmodern Democrats believe fervently in freedom of religion, but only when it comes to Islam.
These same red-hot defenders of the Constitution speak up for freedom of speech, but only when a Republican is in the White House and dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
When Democrats are in power, dissent and criticism magically morph into hate speech.
