  • The Politics of Obedience: The Discourse of Voluntary Servitude

    08/11/2021 8:44:56 AM PDT · by Pining_4_TX · 1 replies ^ | 1548 | Étienne de La Boétie
    THE DISCOURSE OF VOLUNTARY SERVITUDE is lucidly and coherently structured around a single axiom, a single percipient insight into the nature not only of tyranny, but implicitly of the State apparatus itself. Many medieval writers had attacked tyranny, but La Boétie delves especially deeply into its nature, and into the nature of State rule itself. This fundamental insight was that every tyranny must necessarily be grounded upon general popular acceptance. In short, the bulk of the people themselves, for whatever reason, acquiesce in their own subjection. If this were not the case, no tyranny, indeed no governmental rule, could long...

    Rand Paul Dismantles Faucian Doublethink: ‘Where’s the Evidence?’Rand Paul – seemingly the only national-level politician with the moral fortitude to challenge unelected public health commissar Anthony Fauci – made a simple request in the most recent March 18th COVID Senate hearing: produce the evidence or, as the kids say, GTFO.“You’re telling everybody to wear a mask, whether they’ve had an infection or a vaccine… What studies do you have that people that have had the vaccine or have had the infection or the vaccine are spreading the infection? If we’re not spreading the infection, isn’t that just theater? You’ve had...

    Aza, an amateur Arabist who had been brought up to believe that the Koran was linguistically inerrant, said that he began to have doubts about Islam after detecting a number of linguistic errors in the Koran. When a Christian gave him a copy of the New Testament in Kurdish, Aza, who is of part-Kurdish heritage, broke down emotionally after reading it. “God speaks my language!” he exclaimed, overwhelmed by the fact that the Word had not only become flesh in Jesus but also was written in his own mother tongue. Keen to reach out to Muslims with the gospel, Aza...

    What is a Christian's responsibility to submit to governmental authority when laws and regulations are in conflict with a Christian's belief? As a pastor, I am regularly confronted with this question, from parishioners and even in my own life as a citizen of the United States.I was asked the question yet again on our most recent Inauguration Day, when President Joseph Biden was sworn into office. The question was couched in relation to the compliance called for in Romans 13:1–5:Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities...

    Author's note: The contemporary situation is perhaps the first time since the Civil War that talk of literal revolution is getting serious. It has been intensifying for the last four years. In 2018 I reflected on Romans 13. I Include some of those thoughts in the current column. America in this desperate hour does not need bloody, anarchic chaos from left or right, but a constitutional, biblically grounded revolution.Chaos kills the patient it claims to heal.America’s founders, steeped in biblical knowledge and principles, and fresh from the chaos of the Revolutionary War, sought revolution that would be carried out with...

    [Barf Alert] Vatican on Hagia Sophia: Don’t Blame Islam VATICAN CITY ( - A Vatican representative is insisting that Turkey's conversion of Hagia Sophia to a mosque should not be seen as "Islamic aggression" even as President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan fired a shot across the Vatican's bow in an Islamic supremacist speech. "It is the product of the same logic to demand the Vatican be converted into a museum and insist that Hagia Sophia remain as a museum," Erdoğan declared on Turkish television Monday after Turkey's top court annulled President Kemal Atatürk's 1934 decision to turn Hagia Sophia into a museum as...

    Using the COVID pandemic as an illustration, unsuccessful presidential candidate Hillary Clinton boasted that "women are superior leaders. Out of all the governors called upon to deal with the virus the one who stands head-and-shoulders above the rest is Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan. She is my hero." "Gov. Whitmer was quicker than anyone else to recognize that ordinary people are incapable of making wise decisions on their own," Clinton asserted. "She was the first to neutralize individual self-reliance and the most thorough in establishing the widest authoritarian control ever seen in America. Her ruthless enforcement of her executive directives is...

    In the wake of the George Floyd riots, Democratic Party leaders have assumed extraordinarily submissive postures, apparently on the theory that they are guilty in Floyd’s death.They said it, I didn’t.Here, the Democratic Congressional delegation (or a significant part of it) knelt for eight minutes and 43 seconds in honor of George Floyd, the armed robber, while wearing black separatist garb. I think that is Nancy Pelosi front and center, but she looks only around 70 years old, so I could be wrong:In this shot, a whole bunch of white people, including Police Chief Michael Shaw of the Webster,...

    If you thought “abolish the police”—or it’s more moderate iteration, “defund the police”—was just some asinine slogan blue-check journalists, woke academics, and pandering public officials post on Twitter to show they support the Black Lives Matter movement, then you’re not keeping up with the revolution.This week Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, announced the city would be slashing the police department’s budget by $100 to $150 million and instead “reinvesting in black communities and communities of color.” The cuts to the LA police will make up the bulk of $250 million in funds to be reallocated to “end racism in...

    Italy: Nursery school calls off its Christmas play for fear of offending Muslims Non-Catholics have lived in Italy for centuries. What is different now? Now there is in Italy a population of non-Catholics among whom are some radically intolerant people who believe that Christianity in all its forms is a twisting and hijacking of the true teachings of Jesus the prophet of Islam. And the principle is always and everywhere the same: in Muslim countries, one must conform one’s behavior to Muslim sensibilities. And in non-Muslim countries, one must conform one’s behavior to Muslim sensibilities.“Xmas play scrubbed for fear of...

    The crosses on graves in an Italian cemetery in Pieve di Cento have been covered with black cloth so as not to offend those who may come from another religion. The cemetery, which is located in Bologna in a town of around 7,000 people, has also installed motorised blackout curtains in a local chapel following renovations to hide Roman Catholic symbols during ceremonies involving other denominations, Il Giornale reports. Following the reports of the coverings of the symbols, many have expressed criticism including Forza Italia (Forward Italy) deputy Galeazzo Bignami who denounced the move saying those looking not to offend were disrespecting Christian values...
