Why Capitalism Is NOT a Substitute For republicanism

Contains Exclusive: Transcript Topics: , , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - On today's show I mention this wonderful post of a speech Dr. Russel Kirk gave in 1988. After reading this piece I was moved to take the task of promoting this work because it says everything about modern conservatism (which is a misnomer now see here) and why it is doomed to fail with reverting to "small is beautiful conservation." Thanks to Winston Elliot III and The Imaginative Conservative blog for the post.….Continue

Happy Birthday John C. Calhoun!

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Video Topics: , , , , , ,

Russell Kirk writes about this in h….Continue

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - We used to have men of arts and letters and that’s what they were known for. Today we have demagogues that yell and scream and holler and hurl names and insist we look at the world through that sort of a jaded lens, that there is only right and wrong in the human realm, that there doesn’t seem to be a right and wrong that’s attached to a godly realm, that natural law somehow just came here and does not answer to supernatural law -….Continue

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - In regards to the Newtown, Connecticut shooting, people trying to attach meaning to these things, we talked about yesterday, sometimes there is no meaning.

Contains Exclusive: Transcript Topics: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - There’s another great story at The Imaginative Conservative website about Wilhelm Roepke, the great Austrian economist and the kind of economics we ought to be talking about.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - When you talk about humane economy, this is where you maybe consider that there are human and humane effects to all this economic gobbledygook that we’re all besieged and heaped upon us every day, like you just heard.  Roepke had recounted a story where he had met the great Ludwig von Mises.  This is all in the theme here of not everything is economic.  Not everything has a dollar symbol attached to it.  We’ve got to purge this i….Continue

[The powerful Executive branch]...converts representation into vassalage to the leaders of parties, disciplined, not by the comparatively honourable infliction of the lash, but by the base and wicked sophism, that it is honourable to stick to a party, and treacherous to adhere to conscience. The disciples of this infamous doctrine are forged into tools for ambition and tyranny by praises and rewards, whilst honesty is discouraged by base epithets, as a foil to the varnish with which the decoys are painted, designed to deceive and enslave the multitude
