The Objective Eye

"Every movement that seeks to enslave a country, every dictatorship or potential dictatorship, needs some minority group as a scapegoat which it can blame for the nation's troubles and use as a justification of its own demand for dictatorial powers. In Soviet Russia, the scapegoat was the bourgeoisie; in Nazi Germany, it was the Jewish people; in America, it is the businessmen."
- Ayn Rand, "America's Persecuted Minority: Big Business" (1961)

Happy Independence Day!

Now Playing: Pluie de Etincelles by Shawn Lane, from "Abstract Logic" with Hellborg & Baker, 1995

It's America's most important holiday and my personal favorite, so I'm off to enjoy a little freedom. I trust most understand the importance of the concepts being celebrated today and their implications for how governments ought to be, but generally aren't, run. The list of ways in which our own government has undermined and openly confiscated freedoms guaranteed to us under individual rights is staggering, but today is a day to contemplate the source of liberty in reason and individualism, to take a breather, and renew our commitment to their restoration.

It's also a day to make a not-so-silent "thank you" to the Founders who engineered this great but constantly-besieged nation. We still have the ability to correct the continued expansion of our leviathan government; we can defeat the enemies of Western Civilization on both the Islamofascist and Ecofascist fronts.

One of the foremost proponents of the latter, a Mr. Albert Gore, is sponsoring another propaganda blitz this coming weekend. If you haven't already, set aside an hour this Saturday and view British filmmaker Martin Durkin's "The Great Global Warming Swindle as an essential reference.

Beyond simply boycotting Gore's coming anti-humanist spectacle I urge everyone to find the most visible, public way of voicing opposition to ecofascism open to you. Letters to the editor are important - though most American news dailies have devolved into left wing broadsheets; posting on any of the myriad Internet forums is an option; blogging is another.

Perhaps this is also a good time to contact your government representation and tell them to defend, not attack, the industrial civilization upon which our very lives depend.

And of course there's always your bumper:

You can get one here.

Just wanted to tell you that I am trying to make a conservative digg alternative called GOP Hub ( Anything you can do to help with this effort would be awesome. Plus feel free to submit any articles you write here on your blog :). Take care and have a great weekend!
