Democrats have tried to discredit conservatism by linking that label to practices such as racism, the oppression of women, religious fanaticism, and favoritism for the rich. Without leadership in a globalized world facing a daunting range of economic, environmental and political challenges, there can only be turmoil, continuing confrontations, and a steady decline in US prosperity. The concrete elements of history, the acts of politicians, the aspirations of people, the ideas, values, preferences and prejudices of an age, are the outward manifestations of its religion in the widest sense.

One, if you are born again, your name is written in the book of life. What one sees repeatedly in Marxism is a new elite that wants to lead the working masses to freedom - and repeatedly these very masses ignore the Marxist elite. There isn't a skirt length or style listed for all Christian women to wear. For Marxists, class conflict just never materialized for them to carry on their revolution, so now they have turned to group-identity conflict to forward their agenda.] Many areas of the country are awash in talk shows and news commentary that are outspokenly ultra-rightist, pro-capitalist, militaristic, anti-union, antifeminist, and anti-immigrant.

To say that history ended in 1806 meant that mankind's ideological evolution ended in the ideals of the French or American Revolutions: while particular regimes in the real world might not implement these ideals fully, their theoretical truth is absolute and could not be improved upon.

This volume examines the roots of pragmatist imagination and traces the influence of American pragmatism in diverse areas of politics, law, sociology, political science, and transitional studies. In addition, Kant's own earlier critique of principles of rationalism had convinced him that the principles of (“general”) logic also cannot justify knowledge of real necessary connections (in nature); the formal principle of non-contradiction can ground at best the deduction of one proposition from another, but not the claim that one property or event must follow from another in the course of nature.

This mélange, this "confusion," has served liberal ideology well, enabling it to secure maximal support. It's still the magazine America's liberals dread most, and the one America's enemies can't afford to ignore.
