St. Augustine of Hippo, in the City of God, wrote of the City of Man (secular order) that it “is itself ruled by the lust of rule.” The late, great Rev. Richard John Neuhaus  said Libido Dominandi  is "the lust for power, advantage, and glory."  This lust for power manifests itself in the power paradigm and masks itself behind the false left-right paradigm.   In these United States we are told the liberals are on the left and the conservatives are on the right; yet, the reality is absolute government is on the left and absolute anarchy is on the right.  Our Founding Fathers placed us to the right of center, slightly to the left of anarchism.  Until you understand this, you will never make sense of our national politics.

We will discuss how the lust for power perverts our political discourse, magnifies the practically non-existent divide between the parties of duopoly and confuses and confounds authentic conservative political involvement and activism.  If, as a conservative, you seek to conserve the principles of liberty stated in the Declaration and the Constitution then you have to be involved.  Yet, how do we advance the cause of liberty and authentic conservatism if we are clouded by our own lust for power and seek to dominate other conservatives who may not agree with us on a particular candidate, policy or issue?

A house divided against itself cannot stand.  Where can liberty-loving Americans agree?  Form tight intellectual bonds based on timeless principle and forge ahead against statist tyranny with bonds of fraternal love.  There is an enemy trying to destroy liberty, until we unite against this evil oligarchy, we will only further their statist agenda by attacking each other.  Get out of your comfort zone, change your paradigm and get radioactive with Tex and Rex!
