The View From 1776
Pope Jane: Counterpoint to a Theme
A reader identified only as Kitchen has submitted a different perspective on Jane Jacobs and her relation to both liberals and conservatives.
- I suggest that principles, Conservative and/or Liberal, should not be chosen by reference to persons; opinion or behavior.
Valid principle ought to be perceived and recognized in human nature, nature, and the Creator's scriptural viewpoint.
Too many 'feelies' erect and construct an idealogue based on persons, appetite, desire, mood, bias, prejudice, and pleasure. Such wind-blown 'criteria' will inevitably produce disjoint and destruction.
Add: Most human opinion is merely that: opinion.
It is commonly called humanism. Thus, such an exercise of Rights is merely an exercise.
"Man cannot make or invent or contrive principles. He can only discover them and he ought to look through the discovery to the Author."
