The View From 1776

Morality and Political Order

There is a vast gulf between each person making up the rules to govern his own conduct and the broad-based, traditional moral ethos that must be present in any society, if it is to be politically unified, stable, and enduring.  The first is a prescription for anarchy, the other, what history shows to be the most essential quality of civilization itself.

  1. What is left unstated by the humanistic liberal socialist is that while they are belatedly choosing their own idea of morality and political ideology they have already established a personal lifestyle of self-indulgent priority negating any potency and ultimate positive influence in the world/universe of cause-effect.

    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 appetites, desires, feelings, emotions, and glands.

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

    Humanism is an unworthy worship and is only "kidding himself." Selah
