The obligatory Memorial Day post, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — georgeguy @ 5:26 pm

Bloggers who post as infrequently as I do should not feel obligated to put up a Memorial Day post.  I didn’t have anything to say last week, and probably won’t have anything else to say this week or the next.    A big blog that posts at least once a week should, but I don’t think anyone wants to go to a low-volume blog and find nothing but holiday announcements in the archives.

However, in an age where people like MSNBC host Chris Hayes can get away with spewing pusillanimous drivel on camera, I figured it might be worth hashing out an explanation of why it is worth commemorating those who died defending our country.

First, Memorial Day is about remembering those who fought for the United States of America and died.  It is not about pontificating about which wars were a good idea or not, or fussing over the possibility that giving this honor to our fallen heroes might inspire some to follow their example.  The fact is that there have been people who proved, through the ultimate test, their willingness to give their lives for their country, and that says something about their character.

There is a disease of fluffy-mindedness running rampant in the media and the institutions of so-called higher learning: a mindset that thinks peace is merely the suppression of conflict, that there would be no war without these stupid things called “nations”, that dismissing differences is the same thing as resolving them.  Building a violence-free utopia is, to this sort of mind, a matter of eliminating violence from our psychological vocabulary, which is to be accomplished by banning weapons and all positive portrayals of military action.

I believe human history can be summarized as a grand quest for a formula for prosperity.  That formula includes which principles should be observed as laws, which principles are better to be encouraged but not coerced, and may also be distinguished by what points are left out.   More than anything else, a nation represents a proposed formula.  It represents the will of a group of people to apply that formula as best they can.   The Constitution of the United States is a large part of the American formula.  The people we remember on this day swore to defend this document and died for it.  And going by most of American history, the American formula is pretty damn good.

… let us remember the failed experiment in communism that led the early American settlers to near starvation, from which they were graciously rescued by their new neighbors.

This Memorial Day

Filed under: Uncategorized — georgeguy @ 3:33 pm

Remember all those who gave their lives for our country, in ‘good wars’ and ‘bad wars’ alike, whether killed by enemy fire or old age or a training accident.    Now is not the time to politicize their deaths or the wars in which they fought.   Save a measure of scorn only for those who neglect our fallen heroes, and for deserters.
