What Manner of Men?

Posted in America, Articles, Democracy, Leadership, Moral Courage

Looking down the darkened corridors of American Democracy, I still see faint flickers of light clustering and creating new pathways of hope for the American people as they make their way outward and upward to greater dreams and brighter days.

What Do You Mean Shut Down Our Government?

Will somebody please tell me how a country shuts down its government? Does shutting down the government mean that it no longer needs to exist or that government is no longer necessary?

The 2018 midterm elections is a referendum on what most Americans want their country to be; not a nation of haters bent on bullying their way to power by frightening and pummeling the people into submission […]

The Problem of Absolute Power

Posted in Democracy, Leadership, Politicians, Power

Absolute power cannot be wielded absolutely forever. The exercise of power in institutions and organizations in any social order can spawn the catabolic elements of its own demise, for within the matrix of power’s workings are the tendencies of human beings to exceed the limits of power  particularly in their coercive attempts to maintain and […]

Long Live Her Majesty Queen of Soul!

“Pay No Attention To That Man Behind The Curtain!”

Posted in America, Articles, Democracy, Laughing Out Loud

Throughout human history there always have been great men and women behind the curtains of  destiny fiddling and fumbling with the levers of ultimate and absolute power. Sometimes such persons are known to the public. Other times they are just simply underground and can never be known. We do know that such supreme power exists […]
