Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Tom Woods and Kevin Gutzman are probably two of the smartest men that I have certainly ever met. Tom was a late bloomer. Tom started out as what he calls a neocon and what I call a decepticon. It’s not until you immerse yourself in the actual study of history -- I don’t just mean the epical history we love to romanticize about. I mean an actual viewing of the nitty gritty, the good, the bad, and ….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I have told you on about a billion and a half occasions, all you can really do is control yourself and what is in your community, or attempt to control what’s in your community, and more specifically in your own local sphere. That means your family, close family, immediate friends and relatives. You can’t possibly hope to effect and cause worldwide change because you desire it and because you think that Jefferson and Henry and ….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – My interest is always piqued with people’s fascination with Henry. Their fascination with him just comes from one speech, the “Give me liberty or give me death” speech. The “Give me liberty or give me death” speech is a great speech, but there’s no transcript of this. No one ever wrote this thing down. He spoke, in what we would call today, extemporaneously. He didn’t have any notes. He didn’t have a script. He….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Jefferson said that republicanism is defined as: a government that is controlled by the people upon which it directly acts. In other words, if you live in a little hamlet anywhere in the United States, you have a town council or city council or alderman, whatever the case may be. Whoever is your direct lawgiver, that is who ought to exercise the most legislative power over your affairs. Why is this concept so hard to understand and wh….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - This is a review of a book written by a guy named Roger Scruton. I’m only going to read a paragraph or so of this because I thought it was insightful given the current discussion about the state of conservatism and whether or not the Grand Old Party is worthy of your time, attention and money any longer. Check out today's transcript for the rest...….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - The part of this that is crying out for the most attention is the cultural, attitudinal, and the lack of virtue part of it. Until you can restore some semblance of an agreed-upon civic virtue and begin having people practice it -- gentlemen, you have to do this. There’s no one going to do it for you. It is your job and responsibility to do this, no matter how silly or antiquated you may think it is. Change your manners, change your….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Consider what it is that the internet does. It desensitizes people to human concerns. You would not yell at your fellow man, in person, in the manner and would not call him or her the names. You would not insult their heritage, their parents, their children, their neighbors. Ninety-nine percent of what is done online that continually desensitizes and coarsens our discourse, cheapens it and makes it more unintelligent than it already ….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - To me, ladies and gentlemen, if we can start acting more like virtuous gentlemen and conduct ourselves and our own affairs in a Christian gentleman-like manner and be civic in our deliberations like our foreparents were and the great men of antiquity were, then we go a long way towards repairing damage that has been done to our civilization, a lot farther than we ever will, I believe, by pursuing political ends. Check out the rest in tod….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - You go to a sporting event, any public event, and unless it’s maybe a Neiman Marcus in-store parade, you will see the absence of the American male, the absence of the assertive and domineering American father. You’ll see it everywhere. This is, I think, and I would wager that many people once they’ve unplugged the matrix cable out of the back of their head and they actually witness this, will see thi….Continue
