The Liberty Sphere advises us as follows:
A close friend who is politically astute, a Tea Party activist and Christian conservative, stated Wednesday in a private conversation that America as we know it is already lost, gone, destroyed.
And not a single shot was fired. This was done entirely through the electoral process, the courts, and a clear majority of the electorate that does not share the philosophy, the mindset, or the world-view of the Founders, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, or our nation’s rich religious heritage.An all-important threshold was crossed, quite imperceptibly and thus totally without notice, that brought the nation into what the Founders referred to as “the tyranny of the majority.”I seem to remember the difference between a Republic and a Democracy was defined exactly by this. That a democracy elicited ‘tyranny of the majority’, and a Republic protected the rights of all.When I was growing up, the phrase was, “Majority rules – Minority rights!”However the education of the youth has devolved as described above. In our Civics classes of yore, we were taught to revere, honor and respect The Constitution. Now, the meme seems to be something akin to ‘whatever the United States is or has done is WRONG and BAD. This country needs to progress beyond the old, outdated document forged by rich White guys to a New World Order. ‘Leveling the playing field’ by fiat or diktat is more efficient and certainly more FAIR!Somewhere within Jeff Cooper’s Commentaries, he makes a statement to the effect that the cry of THAT’S NOT FAIR is the epithet of pre-schoolers who learn as they get older that the World is just that. Not fair. And they demand their due. Just like the OWS
criminals terroristsprotestors did – whom I suspect are those same children, older, but not yet mature.And now, many of those children have done as Van Jones suggested. They’ve left the collegiate quadrangle protest groups for government service. Just as Saul Alinsky wrote in Rules for Radicals. A cancer inside the mechanism of the Nation. To make it ‘better’.But, it’s not.h/t Jeff Cooper
