    Articles: An Appeal for Dictatorship Comes Out of the Closet at the New York Times


    Professor Louis Michael Seidman wrote an op-ed in the New York Times stating that we should give up the Constitution. What he writes, Obama intends.

    There is a community of opinion amongst modern progressives. They are both fractured souls who believe that discontinuity is superior to tradition. They want to create the world anew every day, as if free-floating values are superior to the ballast of the past. Their ideas of a brave new world without precedent represent the cowardice of minds that can't integrate various traditions and values because they are interested more in short-term hedonism than in long-term sustainability.

    The Constitution and modern ideas are like a marriage. Modern ideas without marriage are like cuckolding a spouse; there is no loyalty, no depth, no consistency. On the other hand, the Constitution without modern ideas is like the impotency of old age. We need a relationship between the past and the present. Progressive secularists respect only the present and lose the footing of the past. Thinking only of progress leads to the regress of uprooted values. Failure is the distinction of uprooting an apple tree, killing its roots, and yet still trying to grow apples.

    Without a constitution, we open ourselves up to dictatorship. Our president can do whatever he wants, not being grounded by the past. When the German economy fell apart, economic chaos led to a strongman -- Hitler. Obama prances around as a bully. He is a dangerous weakling.

    Liberals advocating tyranny in the name of furthering their twisted ideology... No surprise there.

    The fact remains that "progressive secularism" is not the fault of liberals but of the failure of church and families in the home. If the latter were successful, this concern would not exist.
