Rob Morse: Promoting Self-Defense as a Virtue
What should we do? We are in an ongoing culture war. Responsibility is out. Victimhood is in. Earning your own way is out of fashion. Demanding the government pay you is now the new normal. Freedom of speech, freedom of religious expression such as marriage, and the right of self-defense are the cultural canaries in our political ecology. Those rights are attacked first.
I’m profoundly disappointed in our political leaders. You are too if you’ve been paying attention. So- called conservative politicians have put up the weakest defense of our rights. In fact, we see political examples of cultural cleansing where liberal politicians want to eliminate a conservative culture. Liberal politicians want to stamp out conservatives to secure their political majority. We are past foolish to depend on politicians to defend our freedoms. What should we do?
