Who will stand up for our Southern culture? A culture undefended is a culture that will die, because cultures are under constant attack by other cultures struggling for dominance. There is plenty to criticize about a democratic form of government (if you are shocked by that statement, you have been watching too much television and believe too many “academics”), but the concept that “everyone gets an equal voice in how things are done” is one of the worst. One of the chief obligations of a monarchy is to defend the culture that built the nation. When England reduced the monarchy to little more than a figurehead, the decline of their culture began in earnest. The switch from monarchy to a quasi-democracy meant that decisions were made according to how it would affect the political power of those in office rather than how it would affect the culture – that which truly defines a nation every bit as much as its physical borders. Am I advocating the dismantling of our republic and replacing it with a monarchy? No. With all its faults, it pales in comparison to the problems seen when a bad monarch is in power. What I am saying, though, is that those who truly have a greater stake in the destiny of the nation should have a greater voice in how decisions are made.
There is nothing we can do about how things are done on the political level, but there is everything we can do within our own families and circle of influence. There is one true Guardian of Southern Culture – that is the Southern family that understands the importance of passing along the culture to future generations. What are you doing to pass along our Southern culture and heritage to future generations?
