MY CORNER by Boyd Cathey

 

More Essays Published by LewRockwell.com and The Abbeville Institute

Friends,

On Sunday, October 25, I promised to offer the various essays that I’ve published since the end of September at LewRockwell.com, The Abbeville Institute, and Chronicles Magazine’s The Intellectual Takeout. The first four basically address more fundamental questions and issues which confront us, what I termed “the general crisis critically threatening our Western Christian civilization these days, examining the agenda and praxis of those who would undermine its foundations and eventually destroy it—and thus destroy the only real civilization and culture that we have, received from our fathers and our ancestors.”

And I included in that first batch discussions of the “philosophy of progress” and how it is used to set the agenda which excludes and condemns all who do not accept it, an exploration of just who are the real radicals in our society, the use of “gaslighting” and intimidation by the revolutionaries to "cancel" us, and how control of our educational system has enabled the virtual triumph of the Progressivists.

The next four essays are duplicative. Essentially, they are two essays which were published by both The Abbeville Institute and LewRockwell.com.  The first one, “Sampson County and the Defense of Western Civilization,” addresses the situation concerning the Confederate monument in Sampson County, North Carolina, and the political double-cross of a leading Sampson County Republican who had solemnly promised to defend the monument where it stood, but when the issue came to a vote led a cowardly retreat. In a very real sense what happened—and is happening—in that largely rural county is symbolic and illustrative of what is occurring all over America and Western Europe: an unhinged and concerted assault not just on our monuments but on our very inherited culture, with many of our supposed defenders giving way and surrendering without a fight, or as Pat Buchanan famously once said, “running to hide in the tall grass.” LewRockwell.com links to the Abbeville publication.

The second piece, “The Polls, Donald Trump, and Secession,” examines the current electoral scene and considers if the United States can remain as a nation, or if, in fact, the differences and extreme divergence of deeply held, irreconcilable beliefs dictate some form of internal separation or secession. Indeed, political separation has become a commonly discussed topic, from scholar/author F. H. Buckley to national columnist Patrick Buchanan. The Abbeville Institute version is slightly different from the LewRockwell.com version in that it emphasizes the historically-Southern relationship to secession.

The Polls, Donald Trump, and Secession

By Boyd Cathey on Oct 19, 2020

 

Far too many pundits and commentators live and die by polls. It seems that each day some on-air talking head or online spinmeister reveals breathlessly increasingly bad results for President Trump and anyone who dares to support him or intends to vote for him.

Consider the following headlines blasted out recently by television news:

“The President has now slipped again in the polls and is behind Biden in the six battleground states.”

“Trump is behind Biden now by 12 points.”

“Georgia, a once safe GOP stronghold, is now in play, as is Texas.”

And the pattern goes on, daily and incessantly….

Sampson County is a large, mostly rural county in southeastern North Carolina. Like most non-metropolitan areas of the state, it tends to be conservative, in fact, a long-time bastion of the modern Republican Party in a sea of traditionally Democratic-voting counties….

Sampson County and the Defense of Western Civilization

 

By Boyd Cathey    Abbeville Institute    October 2, 2020

Sampson County is a large, mostly rural county in southeastern North Carolina. Like most non-metropolitan areas of the state, it tends to be conservative, in fact, a long-time bastion of the modern Republican Party in a sea of traditionally Democratic-voting counties.

But Sampson County illustrates what is occurring all over the Southland. And in microcosm in certain ways it symbolizes the retreat of Western Christian civilization in the face of the overpowering forces of revolution now assaulting our heritage and threatening to dismantle our inheritance….
