Resolution for Personal Evolution

[W]e know without the benefit of fossil records that the fittest on this earth will not survive and that salvation of the faithful, through a supernatural selection, is the only true principle of life. — F.R. Duplantier

The excerpt above is from a “Behind The Headlines” commentary I used to recycle at the end of every year. I first published it in a 1986 issue of The New American devoted to the evolution/creationism debate. Having realized that the word evolution had been hijacked by socialists and narrowly redefined to exclude divine and individual initiative, I decided to reclaim the word and restore it to its original fullness. Yeats’ “Sailing to Byzantium,” interpreted as a metaphor for personal evolution (for the artist, or any human being), provided the framework for the commentary.

Hope and Change

In Crime and Punishment, famed Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky despicted with brilliant insight the criminal’s compulsion to confess. It is not surprising that the Communists, the greatest mass murderers in the history of the world, share this compulsion — though their moments of candor have more the air of braggadocio than of penitence. To a man, the Soviet leaders from Lenin to Gorbachev have boasted of their intentions to enslave the world. Unlike the common criminal, however, who expects to be punished for the crimes to which he confesses, or to be restrained from the commission of those he has acknowledged plotting, the Communist who publishes his evil deeds and evil plans seems confident that he will go unchallenged. — F.R. Duplantier, 1986

Obama is merely the last of a long line.

Marxist Vincentians

There seems to be a law of the universe that states that any so-called independent organization whose existence can be used to attack capitalism will be eventually captured by the left and put to that purpose. The Catholic Society of St Vincent de Paul seems to be striking proof of the existence of this law. . . . — Gerard Jackson, BrookesNews.com

The Australian and European National Councils of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul may be more radicalized than the American, but ours is not far behind, is striving to catch up, and may soon be just as ignorant and subversive. Where in the writings of Vincent and Frederick is there any warrant for lying and thievery in the name of charity?
