Culture and Politics

This section is focused on the many issues of culture and politics. This includes a variety of cultural issues such as marriage and family as well as educational topics. The overriding theme is that freedom, rooted in unselfish ethics and the classical virtues, is the core attribute of human success. It is also the dividing line between the left and the right in politics.

I do my best to not be divisive, because I truly believe that all humans are equal and incarnational children of the same parental God. At the same time, I feel that it's very important to stand up for the sacred freedoms that all humans are given by God. Thus, I think it's unavoidable that freedom-loving people should push back against political and cultural totalitarianism. Ultimately, one hopes that those individuals who support or pursue totalitarianism will change their hearts and minds and stand up for freedom as well.

COVID Lockdowns, Mask Mandates, and the Rejection of Cures: Are They Crimes Against Humanity?
Two and a half million people have died from COVID worldwide. If HCQ+ and other cures had been deployed, how many people would have been saved? Ninety percent?

If so, it means that by not deploying HCQ+ and other cures, Leftist elites and their enablers are responsible for 2,250,000 deaths in the last year that did not have to happen. Because of their lockdown mandates, they are responsible for the destruction of national economies and the well-being of billions of humans around the globe.

Therefore, we must all ask this critical-thinking question:

By rejecting HCQ+ and other COVID cures, and instead forcing lockdowns and mask mandates on entire populations across the globe, have those in power committed crimes against humanity?

I believe that they have. I believe that they should all be called to account. more
Open Letter on Big Tech Censorship and the Cancel Culture
To Every Elected Official Who Still Loves Freedom
Big Tech Runs Internet *Platforms* Which Must Be Censorship Free

Think of Ma Bell and the telephone lines, which now include cell phones. Can you imagine how horrifying it will be if Verizon and other companies start canceling customers because they’re conservatives? This is the easiest way to look at the Big Tech Internet platforms. On phone lines, people can say whatever they like. Companies are not supposed to be listening in, and they certainly can’t declare (yet) that John Q. Republican can’t have a phone because of his political views. more
January 21, 2021 Letter to Good-hearted Biden Voters:
Watch What Happens to America in the Next Four Years
Watch how a free conservative press is silenced, with scores of conservative thinkers and publications taken offline.

Watch how your conservative friends and family members are deplatformed, restricted, denied credit cards and bank accounts, and even arrested for conservative free speech that is deemed “hateful.” more
Are American Freedoms One Election Away from Extinction?
This essay was the basis for a speech given by the author at an event of the same name on October 6, 2020, in North Yarmouth, Maine, with fifty sponsoring groups and leaders, including the host, the Gray Republican Committee of Gray, Maine. https://grayrepublicans.org
Read this next sentence and ask yourself if you think that it’s true:

If a majority of Americans lose their understanding of history and the truth and lose their love for America, America will not survive. more
National Borders and the Value of America as a City On a Hill
Presented at the program “Stop Open Borders: Say No to Poverty, Crime, and Tyranny” on July 29, 2020, hosted by the Gray Republican Committee. A video of my presentation is listed here.
I start with a question–a dilemma that does indeed have an answer. How can good-hearted, ethical, moral people make the suggestion to “stop open borders”? The first few words of John 3:16 are: “For God so loved the world.” With imagination, one can sense that God looks down at the world and sees all human beings, of every color, race, creed, and nationality, as sacred individuals born with the light of God dwelling in their hearts. more
Freedom from Tyranny: A Manifesto of Human Rights for All
The tragic fraud of tyranny is revealed with simple questions, asked to its victims: “Are you unhappy, living under tyranny? If there were no retribution of any kind, would you like to be free to do as you pleased?”

The answer may be slow in coming, for tyranny is a destroyer of dreams. Yet, over time, which soul, created from the same star stuff, would say, “No”? more
Why Socialism Would Destroy America’s Economy and Freedoms
This essay was the basis for a speech I gave at the event of the same name, on November 20, 2019, co-hosted by the Gray and Windham Republican Committees with the co-sponsorship and support of 50 additional organizations and leaders. Around 100 people attended.
Socialism would destroy America’s economy and freedoms because it’s a totalitarian system rooted in hatred, envy, and revenge that gives political and economic power to a bureaucratic élite who inevitably become corrupt as they steal from the masses whom they set out to liberate. As socialism removes economic and political freedoms, it crushes the human soul and turns its citizens into jailers and slaves. Personal dreams and ambitions fade away, and society descends into bored mediocrity, corruption, poverty, fear, and death. more
Free Speech, Hate Speech, & Censorship:
Winning the 2020 Elections
~ This essay was the basis of a public speech given on August 15, 2019, co-hosted by the Gray Republican Committee in Gray, Maine. Brown is the Chairman of that committee. You can view that speech here.
First, liberals and conservatives need to join together and affirm that we want to be free and that living a life of freedom requires thought and free-flowing dialogue. Totalitarians don’t like freedom of thought at all. more
Reparations for One Demands Reparations for All
~ This essay is an updated and expanded excerpt (the second part called "Reparations") from the longer essay “Identity Politics is a Revenge-Driven Tragedy That Will Make the Whole World Blind.” The original essay has also been updated to match this new content.
Reparations for one demands reparations for all, because all humans have ancestors who were victimized by someone. All humans also have one or more ancestors who harmed someone else. Thus, the call for reparations must be replaced by the much higher commitment of love and forgiveness in all directions. That is a path toward peace. more
