Degeneracy Of The Left

Liberal ideology brings with it a mindset and a lifestyle. Unhealthy ones. Essentially born out of the French Revolution, modern leftism arose as a counter-culture against religiosity and the Church.

The Source of Materialism

Anti-capitalist sources constantly berate commercial aspects of society as materialistic and greedy.

Election Aftermath

The recent election signaled a swing in the pendulum. Collectivism and the left suffered a huge blow. Soon the Congress, the White House, and likely the Supreme Court will tip the balance of power.
