Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "Conservative nationalism was already on the rise in the 1980's. This was 1988 when Nisbet delivered the Jefferson lecture. The four men who have served as presidents since Robert Nisbet delivered this lecture make Reagan seem like an isolationist. Remember his 1976 plea at the Republican National Convention to end the problems of nuclear war or his suggestion to the Soviet premier in 1986 in Iceland that Americans and Soviets simp….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Today there are fewer and fewer communal associations. You’re told not to be part of what anyone else is doing, go toot your own horn, march to your own drummer. You need to be an individual first. You’re not a member of anything. No, we’re all Facebooking, Twittering, and pursuing our individualism, our radical autonomy all as individual little atoms totally free from any attachment whatsoever to the rest of humanity, othe….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Leo Linbeck III has an article at The Imaginitive Conservative comparing two 19th Century Frenchmen's vision of America, Rousseau and Tocqueville, to our current political situation. It seems that America has been divided in two for a very long time, Tories and Whigs, North and South, Republicans and Democrats... always two differing views on how the country should move forward. So the fact that we're divided right now is nothing n….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. If there is meaning, the meaning is probably obvious. They’re evil men that desire to do evil things because they haven’t either been taught or they have rejected that evil is to be avoided and evil is to be minimized, that evil is going to cost you a place at God’s table in h….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 - Conservatism’s advance or conservatism’s defense and then advance should not be predicated upon its marriage to a political party. The political party ought to be courting us. We should not be courting the political party. That equation is backwards. We’re the leaders that if the party wants to use our brain trust, if they’re smart and want to organize and retool what it is they do, they need to come to us. We don’t need t….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - What he’s basically saying is we have collectively, and are continuing to do this right now as we speak, surrendered what once was a grand community here in these United States. If you go back and read De Tocqueville’s Democracy in America, this is what he was most amazed by. Everywhere he went, there was a community. There were people that congregated together, built homes together, businesses togeth….Continue
