Real democratic countries do not go at war with their neighbours -- that part is genuinely true for Western countries, but we fail to realise that since our leaders have invited a huge throng from the third word everyone is on the edge of a global war.

seedling  The general civilization of a family is symbolic of its internal unity, but its fading from the contemporary humanity, as are all figures of conventional society…. behaviour, training, celebration, service and faith have acquired disobedience and half-hearted quality which imitates nomadic life, predicated as we are on the worldwide space-rays.

Warriors still splash blood for the tyrants,

And their dark sadness shows their path;

Children sob and cursed profoundly in silence,

Then the thugs prolong wars within wrath!

This should definitely become a song,

maybe people will take notice the gong!

The use of gong is rare into such a discourse

Maybe providing a kind tender but not by force...

The least freedom in the Middle East has decreased,

and we all may thank the Secretary of State when the Arab Spring initiated.

From "A Hillside Thaw" by Robert Lee Frost:

   ''In the confusion of them all aglitter,
    And birds that joined in the excited fun
    By doubling and redoubling song and twitter,
    I have no doubt I'd end by holding none.''

Published on 19 Jul 2017

Recorded on February 27, 2017

In the latest episode from Uncommon Knowledge, Sir Roger Scruton, a formally trained political philosopher, talks about his life and the events he’s witnessed that led him to conservatism. He first embraced conservatism after witnessing the leftist student protests in France in May 1968. During the ensuing riots in Paris, more than three hundred people  were injured. Scruton walked away from this event with a change in worldview and a strong leaning toward conservatism. Visits to communist- controlled Poland and Czechoslovakia in 1979 cemented his preference for conservatism and his distaste for the fraud of communism and socialism,  initiating a desire to do something about it. From thereon he dedicated himself to helping organize underground seminars for the young people oppressed behind the iron curtain.
