The View From 1776

There Ought To Be A Law?

Liberalism’s preference for liberty as unrestrained hedonism is a down-hill run toward social disorder that paradoxically necessitates far more legal restraints upon personal conduct than the colonists needed to regulate the society that produced the founding principles of the United States.

  1. Many problems in human experience are the result of
    false and inaccurate definitions of humankind premised
    in man-made religions and humanistic philosophies.

    Human knowledge is a fraction of the whole universe.
    The balance is a vast void of human ignorance. Human
    reason cannot fully function in such a void; thus, the
    intellect can rise no higher than the criteria by which it
    perceives and measures values.

    Humanism makes man his own standard of measure.
    However, as with all measuring systems, a standard
    must be greater than the value measured. Based on
    preponderant ignorance and an egocentric carnal
    nature, humanism demotes reason to the simpleton
    task of excuse-making in behalf of the rule of appe-
    tites, desires, feelings, emotions, and glands.

    Because man, hobbled in an ego-centric predicament,
    cannot invent criteria greater than himself, the humanist
    lacks a predictive capability. Without instinct or trans-
    cendent criteria, humanism cannot evaluate options with
    foresight and vision for progression and survival. Lack-
    ing foresight, man is blind to potential consequence and
    is unwittingly committed to mediocrity, collectivism,
    averages, and regression - and worse.

    Humanism is an unworthy worship.

    "Got Criteria?" See Psalm 119:1-176

  2. Very compelling.

    This great commentary by Tom and this great article by Mr. Caldwell strongly highlights the tendency toward the state's micromanaging of the behavior and individuals' lives for them and reminds me of something that Senator Rick Santorum said recently.

    "[T]he liberal culture [of the left] -- the idea that [...] people should be able to do whatever they want to do, has an impact on people and how they behave." He was pointing out on Rush Limbaugh that "you actually look at the consequences of their ideology, and you see how it impacts people's lives and how it impacts families..."
