Empowered creation in a time of destruction. Alexander Tytler: right all along?

These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. ~ Revelation 17: 13-14

Thaddeus G. McCotter, American Greatness: We live in chaotic times, wherein the forces of creation and destruction are warring.

This internecine conflict within the human family is neither novel nor final, but perpetually prone to eruption throughout the course of history. Even within periods of relative calm and creation, such as the Enlightenment, the forces of destruction were at work; and many of these destructive forces during the Enlightenment, such as the ideological cesspool of [1]Rousseau continue to do damage to individuals and societies. Today, in this eternal conflict we endure the destructive accelerant of the pandemic.

The intrinsically destructive COVID-19 pandemic has caused pain, suffering, and death to millions of people. Rapt by the virus’ carnage and garbed in the authoritarian cloak of politicized science, the intrinsically destructive Left has been inspired to intensify its efforts to destroy the foundational rights and principles undergirding our free republic and, indeed, the comity and creativity of the entire world: mandatory vaccinations (including for children), vaccine passports, corporate censorship of dissent, and a nascent but burgeoning worldwide social credit system over once free peoples. On and on the examples go of the Left’s destruction of the individual’s freedom of conscience and God-given rights under the crushing weight of their weaponized definition of “collective common good.”


DGH: In Greek mythology, Chaos is translated as “the gaping void.” The primordial void was that from which creation derived, including the deities and Gaea (the Earth). Chaos was often thought to be female, representing disorder and confusion.

Thaddeus G. McCotter: For one can only hate what one seeks to “fundamentally transform.”

In their own words, the Left proves unabashed in its hatred for American society and, notably, those who dissent from progressive aims. In the Left’s efforts to tear down—literally—American society to recreate it, they have been ruthlessly focused on the destruction of the eggs rather than the creation of the omelet. Yet, even after millions have perished in pursuit of the Left’s unobtainable socialist Eden, their destructive hubris persists and represses, because they believe their delusions of recreating society not only excuse but necessitate further destruction.

The creative among us feel the destruction about us. Novelist [2]Walter Kirn has said, “I’m out of opinions right now. Feels like the world is overflowing with them, especially lately, and it’s driven me inside myself a bit.” American Greatness’ own [3]Emina Melonic agreed: “I actually feel the same way. In a bit of an in-between place when it comes to writing.”


DGH: Through God’s grace and mercy, as the Left waxes and wanes, a chorus of creators pursues hope, truth, beauty, liberty, the good – and, above all – love.


Thaddeus G. McCotter: For those pondering new acts of creation, such a feeling of enervation permeates this time of destruction. For those who have overcome this enervation and created, there has never been a more dangerous time. The Left’s identity politics spawned cancel culture. This is a destructive secular god, ravenous for sacrifices. Just ask [4]Dave Chappelle. For those who create in other realms, be they cultural, political, social, or economic, the danger remains from the agents of destruction among us.

But this, too, is neither novel nor final. Thankfully, Kirn and Melonic will again write, opine, and create. Chappelle will remain a comedic genius. Moreover, throughout America, despite the destructive Left, people are uniting in common cause in creative ways to preserve and promote their legacy of liberty and protect their progeny. Consider the fate of [5]Terry McAuliffe and the [6]Loudon County School Board


DGH: We are in a period of Chaos and fighting the darkness to maintain order. If we don’t fight, the country and the civilization created by our ancestors and entrusted to us, crumbles. The mob’s insanity will then reign.

Thaddeus G. McCotter: True, within the original sin-stained universality of the human condition lurks the impulse to destroy, and sadly many succumb. [and] Yet, the vast majority of people feel a greater need to create. If not, there would be no society to discuss or defend, as life would be incessant warfare without [an] end. Fortunately, through God’s grace and mercy, as the destruction of the pandemic and the Left waxes and wanes, a chorus of creators will remain to pursue hope, truth, beauty, liberty, the good—and, above all, love. [end]

DGH: Empowered creation in a time of destruction. We can see who is causing the chaos. Everyone on the Left that would still deny justice to Kyle Rittenhouse despite our system of justice working as intended is a purveyor of chaos. They must be denounced, renounced, and returned to the void. All of us who can see and feel the darkness are the lights that will send them back. If an 18 year-old young man can prevail against the odds, so can we.

For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth. ~ Revelation 17: 17
