The 4th annual CRUSADE Channel Congress, “[r]epublicanism [r]evisited” is a three-day opportunity to consider, discuss, and debate an actionable path back to what we call “little r republicanism” in our civic affairs and the possibilities and limits of working towards it.
Featuring a full floor markup of what we are calling The Covington Compact, a statement or Creed for America’s leaders to follow in our governmental and public affairs and keynote from TBA; a Meet-N-Greet party Friday night, a Cajun lunch feast Saturday and Sunday’s 3rd Annual “Barbecue of The Clans” this Congress presents delegates the opportunity to present their own ideas and get to personally know your fellow CRUSADERS, as we continue to try to one-up ourselves.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Covington, LA. No, really, like actually seeing you there!
“Civil authority is of God, not by any revelation or positive institution, but by the mere fact that God is the Author of Nature, and Nature imperatively requires civil authority to be set up and obeyed. Nature cannot tolerate intemperance, nor anarchy either. And what Nature absolutely requires, or absolutely refuses as incompatible with her well-being, God commands, or God forbids. God then forbids anarchy; and in forbidding anarchy He enjoins submission to authority.
They said that I should lose my ideals and begin to believe in the methods of practical politicians. Now, I have not lost my ideals in the least; my faith in fundamentals is exactly what it always was. What I have lost is my childlike faith in practical politics. – G. K. CHESTERTON, Orthodoxy
That if the application of these States to the government of the United States, recommended in a foregoing Resolution, should be unsuccessful, and peace should not be concluded and the defense of these States should be neglected, as it has been since the commencement of the war, it will in the opinion of this Convention be expedient for the Legislatures of the several States to appoint Delegates to another Convention, to meet at Boston, in the State of Massachusetts, on the third Thursday of June next with such powers and instructions as the exigency of a crisis so momentous may require.
– Final Resolves of The Delegates, The Hartford Convention, 15 January, 1815
The [r]epublican experiment dates back to the ancient Greeks when there were over 2,000 “republics” and from them came the canon of pre-christian, western civilization. Music, Art, Philosophy, Theater all came from this period and yet 2,500 years later, the corrupt geniuses that control our civilization, still haven’t figured this out and made peace with it.
It was in this environment that the idea of a republic was born; an idea that caught fire and persisted in various states even to this day. This idea reched its zenith in the high middle-ages when Christianity helped perfect this one of the two “perfect societies”. Those societies were still on the minds of our Founding Fathers, though they added their post-“reformation” errors to the mix. Still, the American system of subsidiarity i,.e [r]epublicanism did work and can work again, with a few simple edits and scale is key among them.
Thomas Jefferson said of these subsidiarity based “republics” and our little system.
“Indeed, it must be acknowledged, that the term republic is of very vague application in every language. Witness the self-styled republics of Holland, Switzerland, Genoa, Venice, Poland. Were I to assign to this term a precise and definite idea, I would say, purely and simply, it means a government by its citizens in mass, acting directly and personally, according to rules established by the majority; and that every other government is more or less republican, in proportion as it has in its composition more or less of this ingredient of the direct action of the citizens. Such a government is evidently restrained to very narrow limits of space and population. I doubt if it would be practicable beyond the extent of a New England township.”
Every one of our major elite institutions has been infiltrated and taken possession of, literally, by the New World Order. The only thing keeping them afloat are the Men and Women of Good Will who futilely toil to arrest the evil. Here’s a newsflash: it CAN’T be arrested, so LET THEM GO!
“Well, what the Hell we supposed to do, ya moe-ron!?”
What Saint Benedict did.
What the ‘Murican Founders did.
What You and I are GOING to do at [r]epublicanism [r]evisited.
This is not an event that you come to to smash butt in a seat for 3 days and have all your biases reinforced by well paid con-artists. Our Presenters are Congressmen too and participate in this event as fully invested as attendees thus the experience is one of fraternity not faux hierarchy.
Come to this year’s Congress, see, hear, eat, drink and smoke for yourself.
