“Do not ask how fast it is going. Ask rather what direction it is going. There are only two directions—the New Jerusalem or the Abyss.”
The Sinkhole of Secularism
The Backdrop of Understanding is Always the Eye of Faith: "Faith is so quick a grace that it presents things past, things above and things to come—all in a moment, so quick, is this eagle-eye ...
Remember, Reactionaries are Reacting
“So let me say it again. The alt-right is the bastard child of obsequious political correctness on race. That is where this is coming from. That is the root. That is where the energy is coming from . . . if you don’t want weeds in your garden, then stop fertilizing and watering them.”

Chronic Late Adapters

“Racism as defined by the world . . actually, there is the problem. The world is unable to define racism. How could they?
