America, we have a problem.
On a Tuesday in November, 2012 America failed its intelligence test. Actually, it failed its knowledge test. In the wake of America’s most important SAT ever, after which we were sent back for four more years of public schooling, one thing became clear.
America has traded in its own culture for the promised kindnesses of the politically connected
America’s problems will not be solved in the ballot box alone. Political organizing and speechifying are not enough. America needs to recover a connection to its own past, to its own rude, scientifically sound, bracingly honest, common-sensical, aggressive, combative, loud, corn-pone ways. Most of all it needs to reject polite lies and the pseudo-scientific civic-religion of big government and rediscover the surprising truth that human will aligned with the grace of God can achieve things undreamt of by government and its legislators, apologists, bureaucrats, and officers.
Speaking on behalf of the editors of Unified Patriots, it’s time for conservatives and American traditionalists, including libertarians and classical liberals, to focus on the long struggle to restore our culture as well as the politics of things. So we are asking for your thoughts on culture, science, religion, entertainment. Bring on your poems, paeans to nature, short stories, photo essays, cartoons, and humor. Bring on your analysis of the news of the day. We will adjust the format of the site to accommodate.
Your suggestions are welcome. And as usual, the best way to suggest something is to create what it is you are suggesting and publish it here.
