But what is community based upon?

Reader comment on item: Op Eds Now More Central in War than Bullets

I challenge the notion that allegiance has shifted from the one who rules (or governs) to community.

An important question needs to be asked: just what is at the foundation of life?

To say it is any of the faces of history identified by Max Dimont in his book, "Jews, God & History" gives way too much latitude for what is in harmony with the worst angels of our nature to spread metaphysical darkness.

So, communication is important, but also paying attention to those who want to perpetuate the best of the West is important.

For, in all honesty, if one is talking, and no one is paying attention, what aftermath is there - other than a waste of time and breath?
