It’s Time For The United States To Divorce Before Things Get Dangerous
This idea of breaking up the country may seem a bit outlandish now, but you won’t think so once real domestic unrest comes to your town. Divorce is hard, but it’s easier than cutting the brake lines on your wife’s car. It is long past time for an amicable divorce of the United States of America. There is simply no common ground with the Left anymore. We are now the couple screaming at each other all night, every night as the kids hide in their room. We cannot come together, but we do not have to live like this. The history of the world is nations breaking up and redrawing their borders. If we want to avoid this political divide turning into a deadly one, we should do likewise. The GOP has many problems, but the Democratic Party has turned into something completely un-American. The United States was founded on two things: Judeo-Christian values and a limited federal government. The entire platform of modern Democrats stands completely opposite both of those.

Why Goethe matters: The case for ‘a new schooling of attention’
Unthinkable: Germany’s giant of literature had a view of science that still appeals to many. Goethe is to Germany what Shakespeare is to England or James Joyce to Ireland, a towering literary figure and the author of scores of poems, plays and novels. But Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) did not limit his interests to literature. He was deeply involved in the scientific debates of his day and even advanced his own theory of colours, opposing no less a figure than Isaac Newton.
Fifty years separate us, now, from 1968 and the two momentous legacies of the then soon to ending failed presidency of Lyndon Johnson: The declaring of war on America’s supposed domestic ills in the form of the “Great Society” programs, and the aggressive military intervention in a real war in Vietnam. Both of these “wars” reflected the arrogance and hubris of the social engineer who believes that he has the power and ability to remake and direct society in his own preferred image.
