We Must Disenthrall Ourselves

"The dogmas of the quiet past, are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country." -- Abraham Lincoln

Your Say

Have Dems disenthralled after having lost?

Are they winning now, and if so, having never disenthralled as is my opinion, are they about to?

My belief is the dogma of Reagan/Buckley-ism is worthy of emulation; or, at minimum, attempted emulation by anyone capable of which I am not. The goal is still on camera and available via the written word anytime anyone chooses to look.

And Chesterton had thoughts, perhaps based on Lincolns's thoughts, that are Buckleyesque to consider; namely, tradition is the voice of the dead.

Grammar aside (I think too.)

Laughed at, the person who said that average folks might like a little representation on the Supreme Court had a point nonetheless and alltheless.

Look at Colin Quinn on The Larry Sanders Show.

Season 4, episode 6.

Watch it.
