‘The Abolition of Man’ and the Fourth of July
July 4, 2021

It is in those words and the deeds that followed, which gave them life, that the Founders truly participated in the Tao. It is in the resolution and willingness to die a good death that the virtues of the American experiment in self-government are made actual, that humankind is preserved from transformation into what Lewis called a “Trousered Ape,” the mere animal mankind becomes “without a chest” committed only to appetite and calculation.
