9th Grade Versus 15th And The Western Tradition

Dixie's, Robinson Self-Taught Homeschool Curriculum, has Don Cervantes in the 9th grade while St. John's College has it in the 15th!

“In response to reader Jason Whitworth’s query about a course in Western Civ for one who missed out on it the first time around, I would suggest the seminar reading list at St. John’s College, available at this link . There is Western civilization, laid out in all its glory. St. John’s is the best college most people have never heard of, where the humanities still flourish. Our eldest son is a student there now, and loves it. But if you can’t go there, the next best thing is to work through the readings on your own.”
The Western Tradition

"A video instructional series on Western civilization for college and high school classrooms and adult learners; 52 half-hour video programs and coordinated books

Covering the ancient world through the age of technology, this illustrated lecture by Eugen Weber presents a tapestry of political and social events woven with many strands — religion, industry, agriculture, demography, government, economics, and art. A visual feast of over 2,700 images from the Metropolitan Museum of Art portrays key events that shaped the development of Western thought, culture, and tradition. This series is also valuable for teachers seeking to review the subject matter."

"The people of Montana are grateful to Senator Shockley for reminding the people that Montana’s legislators are primarily Montanans and only secondarily serve as occasional legislators. They do not have to specialize in American history or in Constitutional studies.

We are now told that because the North won the Civil War, the conclusion we all should draw from that is that Federal law trumps State law, “like it or not.” Somehow Lincoln managed to rewrite the Tenth Amendment by winning a war – or did he? Let us make a scenario."

Para-Military Groups Help Strengthen Forces

"The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission reports that during the 2009-2010 hunting year North Carolina has 245,650 licensed hunters in the state. Figures aren’t available as to how many unlicensed recreational shooters there are in our state, That in itself constitutes a huge number of citizens who obviously are armed, well trained in the safe and efficient use of guns and very adept at stealth in the woods."

Looters Destroy Mummies In Egyptian Museum


Such a shame. Should be strung up.
"Looters broke into the Egyptian Museum during anti-government protests late on Friday and destroyed two Pharaonic mummies, Egypt's top archaeologist told state television.

A Swiss Tradition

"It has long been a Swiss tradition
To avoid any foreign wars
But to plan and promise perdition
To any foe at the door

The Swiss government trusts its people
To be patriots in deed and thought
And by trusting obtain the loyalty
On the level that can't be bought

They show trust by commending
The keeping of serious arms
In return they obtain a people
That keeps its country from harm

The Swiss may someday be vanquished
Though in two hundred years or more
Every invader deemed it
More trouble than it is worth

The same applies to the people
In certain united States
They seek no trouble abroad
But smite any foe they face

Some government gangs or agencies
Endeavor to try the resolve
These ventures will end in tears
For those who are too bold

For people of this free country
Much like the worthy Swiss
Don't fire unless molested
But then very seldom miss"

More CCW Permits = Equals Less Deaths By Firearms

"Americans overall are far less likely to be killed with a firearm than they were when it was much more difficult to obtain a concealed-weapons permit, according to statistics collected by the federal Centers for Disease Control. But researchers have not been able to establish a cause-and-effect relationship.

In the 1980s and ’90s, as the concealed-carry movement gained steam, Americans were killed by others with guns at the rate of about 5.66 per 100,000 population. In this decade, the rate has fallen to just over 4.07 per 100,000, a 28 percent drop. The decline follows a fivefold increase in the number of “shall-issue” and unrestricted concealed-carry states from 1986 to 2006."

Secession, Treason, The Founders, And…The “Goonies”

"Every time someone writes an article intimating that the South, in seceding, did indeed have a legal leg to stand on, a howling mob of plastic-patriot goons comes rushing out of the woodwork screaming 'TREASON!' In a blatantly transparent show of self-righteousness, they go trampling out the vintage where they think grapes of wrath are stored (it’s actually your fellow countrymen that you’re trampling on, not grapes) to show the world what patriotic Americans they are and how loyal they are to the American government. It is a show that long ago went “over the top,” and indeed, has come to disgust me.

To them, 'patriotism' means love of one’s government. Patriotism is not love of one’s government. It is love of one’s people, love of one’s home and love of one’s way of life - all of which constitute love of one’s country."

"Open source insurgencies, revolts, etc. operate on very simple premise:

They negate, block, stop, halt, reverse, etc. the status quo.
