Reminder that square clock faces are a symbolic abomination.

It’s now the β€œliberal” #SocialJustice warriors who[…]’ve set abt attempting to create & impose[…]a new conception of the sacred[…], along w/ its natural corollary: the conception of blasphemy (#racism, #homophobia, #transphobia & the like).
#Conservative/s […]have sought to fight this new menace[…]by appealing to classical #liberal bromides concerning #freespeech, #individualism, & the necessity of a #secular public square that’s agnostic abt ultimate metaphysical goods.

"People live in communities because that is human nature. By living in community, people have natural obligations toward one another. Each order of community exists for a purpose consistent with human nature to protect the #CommonGood for its members."

"#Rights are based on obligations which come from nature. There is no such thing as a right without an obligation to establish it. People think that #freedom is achieved by protecting #rights. In reality, #freedom is achieved by protecting #duties."

"Therefore, neither the higher, nor the lower, orders of community may usurp the roles and authorities that are part of the internal life of any given community. This applies regardless of the form of government. It applies equally to a #monarchy, a #republic, or any other form."

"An important difference between #subsidiarity and the view more commonly accepted in our society is that the higher levels don't get their authority from the lower levels. What authority they have is natural to them by their existence." ~David W. Cooney is.gd/etinHk

"#Subsidiarity [...] takes an older view of the #socialcontract idea, where the 'contract' may establish the form of government and who will hold the positions of government, but is limited in terms of establishing the functions of government."
