The Spirit of Independence: Laura Ingalls Gets it

Before NBC made Laura Ingalls a fictional 1970s teenager in a calico costume, she was a very real girl in a very non-fictional 1870s world. When she was 14 years old she attended an Independence Celebration in a small Dakota town. This was a time when America valued liberty and knew what it cost.

800 years ago this morning, the knights, nobles and churchmen of Britain rose early, sharpened their swords and saddled up.  Then they rode, together, to a business meeting with the King of England. They assembled on a marsh-like meadow on the River Thames.  It wasn’t exactly a battlefield, but it might have become a muddy and bloody one.  Thousands of armed men met face to face with the King, his nervous bodyguards and cavalry.  The conversation was polite, but strained and deadly serious.

In 1993 my wife Victoria performed a counter-revolutionary act. She handed a well-worn, red spiral-bound book to our six-year-old daughter. Our daughter could not read, but that was precisely the point. The book was Sam Blumenfeld’s work on phonetic English. After a few days of reading over the basic sounds and alphabetic code with her mother, our daughter concluded, “Well, that was easy; I can’t see any reason why Ben couldn’t do that.” Ben was her four-year-old brother. Within a few days of being led through the book by his big sister, he too was reading English.

Europe has a problem. She doesn’t know how to discuss or resolve the accelerating Islamic threat. Fast-growing Muslim populations in her cities and towns are getting more vocal in hate-filled calls for holy Jihad in Europe. Jihad in Europe will mean the end of Europe as history knows Europe. Two primary European factions are trying to reason-out the future.

“A dog, a woman, and a walnut tree; the more you beat them, the better they be.”

So goes the centuries-old English proverb about romance and human affection. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, British fantasy-pornographer Erika Mitchell has revived this cruel idea in a major motion picture. In Mitchell’s narrative, an innocent college girl is deceived, tormented and abused for the apparent sexual gratification of the criminal doing the beating. True to the proverb, the story suggests that the victim is the better for it, and now millions of filmgoers worldwide are lining up for a prurient peek at this perversion of romance and human affection.

A Message From Geoffrey Botkin

Why do historians call the family “the basic unit of society?” Because families build and then preserve the foundations of civilization. Parents and children can work together and learn together and create the very fabric of culture. When families know what they’re doing, the adventure of family life is stimulating beyond description. And home life becomes happy and highly rewarding. The families here at Western Conservatory are on an exhilarating mission to find and publish the lost secrets and tools families need to build the future. We are extraordinarily optimistic about the 21st century because we see so many American families rediscovering solid ground and a vision for freedom. Come with us on this journey of faith and promise. Let’s build the future together.
