Who Are The Centinel(s)? Revisiting the Travesty of the Constitution

Who Are The Centinel(s)?  Hobgoblins

Who are the Centinels that should be keeping the factual and Constitutional perspective on governing both at the Federal and State level? Wait, you are worried about my spelling of Centinel? Well I gather that you have not read the Anti-federalists Papers have you? Centinel was one of the most prolific Anti-federalist writers and very predictive of our present.

I am re-broadcasting the program from October 15, 2016 because it is relevant to the present. Now, Centinel #1 is specific to the October 15th program yet, Centinel #11 brings home what is happening in respect to the States presently. Consider the topic of #11 – ‘The Hobgoblins of Anarchy and Dissentions Among the States.’

Hobgoblins

The Centinel(s) of our present in respect to the Federal Constitution were intended to be States and the Citizenry in the States. Unfortunately the opening of #11 speak to both the Federal and now, the States in particular. The hobgoblins of these modern times are those produced from academia and the lack of involvement of the churches in all aspects of society. Worse, the modern hobgoblins are the lords of the bureaucracies at every institutional system in all levels of government, business and education. Just to modernize Centinel #11 a tad, my substitutes are emphasized and original struck through – Continue reading

Liberty Lost: From the Beginning  Liberty Lost

Liberty Lost from the beginning of the implementation of the Constitution of 1787. Now I am hearing the outcries of all those modern stalwarts of the US Constitution, “Tom, How Dare you say Liberty Lost from the beginning when the Constitution is the securer of our Liberty?”

I can only make the statement of Liberty Lost based on the comments and testimony of someone who was at the Convention of 1787. Our guest for this program is a forgotten soul. He is an uncelebrated war hero, a political leader and a person of great means and ability. He makes this comment in one of his early commentaries on the Constitution which he was able to debate in person: Continue reading

Lewis, Tolkien and the Anti-federalists – The Common Theme?

Is there a common theme between the writings of Lewis, Tolkien and the Anti-federalists? I believe that there is. The fundamentals of truth are more than and theme. The approach of each author, in the case of the Anti-federalists: authors, transcends style to, as Aslan says, “The deeper meaning of things.”

I have read all these works numerous times over the last forty plus years. By taking my time in reading these books I can absolutely see a common theme. The question is: Can You?

This week, I explore the most rudimentary connection between C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and the Anti-federalists. I’m not the literary genus or philosophical sage as many other I know but, I do know the Anti-federalist. With out a doubt in my analysis, I can assure you that there is a connection. Whether it is a theme or something more fundamental, you will have to find out from either watching the video or listening to the podcast of the program.
