Battle for the soul of the West: Manifesto
“I wish this need not have happened in my time.”
"As Frodo told Gandalf, when he found out he had this ring of immense import: “I wish this need not have happened in my time.” I’m sure the guys who waded ashore at Guadalcanal or Normandy felt the same way. But we are here, and the battle for not only the soul of the West, but I believe its very life, hangs in the balance. As C.S. Lewis said, we need to endeavour to go where the lines are the thinnest, and the battle is the fiercest. Right now, IMHO, the battle is not with M-16s, tanks and drones, but with ideas, education, and information dissemination. I, for one, am never, ever, ever giving up."
