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

 

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.

 

On universities

Universities have become a place to provide economic and political protection for those who hold economically and politically unworkable ideas. — Robert W. Pratt

 

On Rush Limbaugh

William F. Buckley is the esteemed father of the American conservative movement and gave it meaning; Ronald Reagan took conservatism to the public, showed it worked, and made it popular; Rush Limbaugh is the man who embedded political conservatism into our culture. — Robert W. Pratt

 

On mistakes in politics

Politics, as opposed to science, does not reward the correction of mistakes, given that correcting a mistake also entails admitting to having made one. Worse, the bigger the mistake, the greater the political urgency of defending it at all costs. — Lionel Shriver

 

On rights and freedoms

When we think of our rights and freedoms as rewards for good behavior, we lose. — Meghan Murphy
