Paul Fredrick MenStyle

On Virtue & the Republic

Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall, when the wise are banished from the public councils, because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them. -- Edwin Meese III

On Political Pessimism

Defeatist cynicism is an arrogance that we too know an outcome – we do not. Our Creator expects us to fight for good until He ends the game, not us. -- Robert W. Pratt, Pratt on Texas

On Liberty

I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it. -- Thomas Jefferson to Archibald Stuart

On Right

The fool is disturbed not when they tell him that his ideas are false, but when they suggest that they have gone out of style. -- Nicolás Gómez Dávila

On Political Correctness

Political correctness never rears its ugly head independently. It always shows up as a series of actions designed, to this observer, to crush the souls of those blessed with common sense. -- Milo Yiannopoulos

On pessimism and difficulty

When you encounter difficulties, you need to be optimistic. The pessimists tend to die. --Zhou Youguang

On American Liberals

Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views. -- William F. Buckley, Jr.
