Bravo, Michael Graham
In the long run virtue is its own reward … and people who respect that will support Michael in his next endeavor. Indeed, it looks like Michael has prospects already. (Hat tip Always On Watch)
Liberty doesn’t start with limited government and individual rights – these are the product of a specific cultural evolution having its genesis in Ancient Greece and reaching the summit of philosophical maturity in the Anglo-American Enlightenment. Today civilization is weakened by a cultural disintegration and threatened by theocratic barbarians. Only a rational reality-based philosophy can secure liberty on a proper foundation.
