Friedrich Hayek’s observation above would seem to be the Holy Grail of cultural change, too. That is, “ by some sly roundabout way introduce something that they can’t stop.” After all, that is how we’ve arrived at our current woke catastrophe.
As for reversing gears, Bitcoin and like monies are possibly starting this disruption of our current monetary system. Parallel economies would seem to be of some use in combating woke corporations. But like the weather, cultural change can be hard to create by itself, though it changes all of the time.
What is true about the weather though is that high pressure (static) systems expand into low pressure (fluid) systems. Analogously, high pressure (static) cultures will eventually deteriorate into more low pressure (fluid) cultures. For example, it is often held that education and scholarly attainment promote innovation and economic growth. This is not necessarily true. Educational citadels can also become quite static cultures.
It’s often thought that education precedes innovation, whereas it’s more often the other way around. We cause something; then we study to understand it. Since individual initiative is more possible in a more fluid system, it would seem to me that we must find and secure a current reflection of the extremely fluid era and character of our own Western expansion if we are to preserve our nation as the founders intended.
The news for many of us is that the settlers within a new territory necessarily adopt and establish the cultural mores of those territories. In his essay, “ Westerns Are Us ,” Vincent McCaffrey maintains that “the themes of the American West, self-reliance, individuality, cooperation, trust, perseverance and resourcefulness, remain with us as a nation . . . What remnants of the Western (mythos) endure will be the survival of American culture.” This has been our heritage […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
