Human Scale – Big Government Equals Big Power Equals Big Tyranny

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Another thing no the same subject, why do we always think of things in terms of large, ginormous scales? I have a friend that asked me two weeks ago, almost to the day: Mike, why don’t we think in terms of American secession and American independence and American republicanism, why do we think of it in terms of cities, in terms of towns or counties? There are some pretty prosperous and very well-regarded and respected, very small republics out there, like San Marino, like Luxembourg. I believe Monaco is its own little self-governing fiefdom.

Death Of Storm Chasers Reminds Us That Man Cannot Control Everything

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The sense of shock and bewilderment that scientific experts were unable to with certainty predict the path of the fury of nature is indicative, I think, of many of the things that you and I, that’s you, audience, I, host, discuss on a daily basis and some of the things that trouble us as far as our detachment from the spiritual and our lack of humility in the face of nature and the face of what awesome powers are out there that mankind will never be able to with certainty control.

Law & Order – Too Many Laws, Not Enough Order

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – When James Madison was writing Federalist Paper No. 62, I think, something like that, when he was writing that particular Federalist Paper and he was pining away from a check on the excesses of the state legislatures -- he wanted a veto on the acts of the states -- the reason he gave was that you had to have some kind of a board of revision that could look at laws that were injurious to liberty and could repeal them. If law became too complex and if there were too many laws that were passed, then nobody could possibly obey them because they could not possibly know what they all are.

Loss Of Community Means More Power For The State

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – It’s really what is at the heart of and the core of what Orwell was warning about in 1984. This is what Orwell was also trying to drive the point across when he wrote Animal Farm. This is what Bradbury was getting at in Fahrenheit 451 and others. It’s what Philip K. Dick is getting at in many of his sci-fi novels and sci-fi short stories about the future, looking at it to where man is not man any longer. Man is a functionary of the State.

We All Need To Just Slow Down And That Includes CNN And The Rest Of Mainstream Media

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Why are we in such a hurry? I find myself being in a hurry all the time. I come to a red light and I don’t want to sit at a red light. It’s telling me to stop. Every social fiber of my being, every fiber of my being that has been socialized, that can hear, can see, can read, everything in every part of my daily life tells me to go, go, go, faster, faster, don’t stop. You must go faster. It’s like Jeff Goldblum in the back of the Jeep in Jurassic Park being chased by the T-Rex. Check out today’s audio and transcript for the rest…

The State That Booed The Golden Rule Again Chooses Mark Sanford

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – While it is always ill-advised and inadvisable to cheat on your wife, violate your oath, lie, do other forms of cheating, steal, whatever the case may be, we cannot deny that there is available to us mercy. Without mercy, the human condition would cease to exist as any manner or form of an organized society, because once you’ve sinned, you’re kicked out.

Drones Kill Souls But That’s Okay?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – You people seem to believe that the kind of dreadful human atrocities that happened in the Soviet Union, that we believe happened in Cuba, that happened in red China, happened under the Khmer Rouge, happened under any of the totalitarian communist regimes out there, that they can only happen because those people were communists or they happened under the Third Reich from 1936 to 1945. They can only happen over there; they can never happen over here. Why not? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Americans Are Trained To Always Go, Never Stop

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – We’re not a free people anymore. When we’re told to stop, we stop. Think about this. No, I’m not trying to get into the philosophical weeds. Who told you that you have to stop at a red light and that you must go on green? You may think that’s ridiculous. Think about it. Who told you that? We’ve normalized the stop and go. We’ve normalized it to the point where we have accepted that our society and existence must be mobile. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

We’re All Slaves To Government And Politics

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Politics is practiced by and among men. It is what we use to perfect the human condition. It is the tool that we believe, here in the 21st century, that we have at our disposal that can correct all the bad programming that God put into us. We can fix all of that bad programming. We can get all the things aligned that ought to be aligned if we just practice prudent politics. Check out today's transcript for the rest...
