Why Frederick Douglass is Still Relevant Today

I did not intend to write a trilogy here. I just wanted to understand the Civil War. It started when I moved to the South. I wanted to understand why so many Americans would kill each other. And by extension, why so many Americans continue to hate each other. Here’s Part 1 and Part 2 of this series. I’ve mentioned… Read the rest

The Slavery–Abortion Connection

It started with my desire to learn about the Civil War. I wasn’t looking for history, I just wanted to know what would drive Americans to slaughter each other in such vast numbers (an estimated 640,000 to 700,000). I’ve written here about diving into Ken Burns’ Civil War series, and I lamented the utter waste of seeing another one on… Read the rest

We Don’t Need Another CIVIL WAR!

I’ve been watching documentary filmmaker Ken Burns’ classic series The Civil War , and I’m loving it! Since coming to the South, my interest in the horrific fight between Americans has increased dramatically. I’ve also read Bill O’Reilly’s / Martin Dugard’s book Killing Lincoln, which I also enjoyed immensely. Watching The Civil War, I heard Frederick Douglass quoted many times, which piqued my interest too,… Read the rest

Isn’t It Time We Listened to Gandhi?

Gandhi once famously said, “BE the change that you wish to see in the world.” Those words have never held more significance for me than they do now. I believe that people who hold traditional values have made a grave mistake by falling to the temptation to react to the evil we see all around us. Of course, there is… Read the rest

YouTube Covers for Dr. Wuhan Again!

Well, they did it again! YouTube gave me a “strike” and removed my video, Stupid, Dangerous COVID Advice (this link goes to the video on Rumble). Supposed reason: It violated their “Community Guidelines.” I now have a “strike” and can’t upload for a week. On what grounds did YouTube remove my video? Are you ready? “Spam, deceptive practices, and scams”!… Read the rest
