Confederate Major General Patrick Cleburne, KIA November 30, 1864, Franklin, TN, Irish born
Confederate Major General Patrick Cleburne, KIA November 30, 1864, Franklin, TN, Irish born "Stonewall of the West."

Will removing Confederate flags, monuments, and names promote social peace or racial healing? How long would a peace based on suppression of a people’s cherished heritage last?  How long would a peace built upon suppressing the memory, valor, and virtue of the revered forebears of a great number of the Southern people last?  What could possibly be a surer cause of immense strife, bitterness, and economic and political turmoil?  Does anyone outside of a madhouse believe that peace and prosperity can be achieved by discarding the heritage of a numerous people to gain the political favor of another?  It is more likely to shatter all hope of peace.  Can a society set itself against tolerance and mutual respect and have peace? No fair-minded person can accept such corrupt reasoning.

Statue of Nathan Bedford Forrest, Famed Confederate Cavalry leader, Removed from Memphis park in 2017.

In 2017, Memphis politicians managed to remove the statue of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest from a prominent city park. In the near future, they even plan to move the graves of Bedford Forrest and his wife, Mary Ann. Will removing the memory of Forrest promote social peace or justice in Memphis or in Tennessee? They many not recognize it yet, but they are moving in the wrong direction for truth, social peace, and justice.

WHAT DOES PEACEFULLY ASSEMBLING MEAN?

Apparently there are those among our U.S. population who have misconceptions about what our venerable and ceaselessly  attacked U.S. Constitution says about the proper method of “protesting”, or “peacefully assembling” in order to deliver a focused message from a large number of citizens to our elected government representatives.  Considering the degree of IGNORANCE exhibited by most of the American people today regarding what our increasingly ignored 1787 Constitution mandates, plus what our 1791 “Bill of Rights” specifies strongly in Amendment No. 1, it is not surprising that the enemies of our liberties have such an easy time convincing large segments of the populace that “violent protesting”, “looting” and “attacking and/or murdering” those with whom one disagrees politically are as “American as apple pie”.  If that’s what you believe, YOU ARE WRONG—VERY, VERY WRONG!

I am sure that you have been watching the mass marching terrorism invading cities across America with their violent and destructive forces, and wondering, like me, why our local leadership refuses to exercise power to quell them. The quickness with which these mobs arose following the visible murder of one man is evidence they were planned in advance and only waiting for some event to occur that would give them some justification. You probably also wonder, as I do, why local forces are quick to take away our rights to assemble and move about because of some virus we know little about, but refuse to take action against the thieves and rioters who are destroying our properties and our livelihoods; many are even wanting to defund the police forces necessary to maintain everyday protection for their citizens. Are we still living in America or have we become some third-world tribal conglomerate? The powers that be are doing everything in their power to divide and conquer; to put our nation into so much conflict they can totally negate our Constitution and remake the nation into one totally under their control.

Understanding this Is Crucial to the Future of America – Part 2

(Last time, we published Part 1 of John DI Lemme’s article “Capitalism Vs. Socialism”, in which he presented his 3 reasons why socialism is destructive to true human liberty.  Part 2 will detail the advantages of capitalism <free enterprise> over the always destructive to freedom, leftist schemes of socialism.)

REASON #1 OF WHY CAPITALISM CREATES TRUE WEALTH—CAPITALISM ADDS VALUE TO PEOPLE’S LIVES.

Capitalism creates an environment for a person to cling to their unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as stated in our Declaration of Independence.  As business owners and entrepreneurs, we are motivated by our ability to not just survive but truly thrive in a capitalist society.  We value ourselves and our businesses, because we realize our potential to succeed and believe it’s possible.

One of my favorite subjects to write about in this august journal of truth has always been the lives of extraordinary people, especially when they are Christians, and most particularly when they have turned from a Devil’s Disciple to one of God’s Children – from sinner to saint.  Those are the people I love to write about, to share with my readers their beliefs, their values, their strengths and weaknesses, their deeds, their fears,  and their valor that we of the present might emulate to some degree.
