Part of the greatness of civilization is the containment of uncivilized behavior and instincts. Culture, guilt, shame, quality, expectations all these and more play decisive roles in shaping behavior. Natural law, which few discuss and fewer know about, is a key basis for Western civilization.

Hence the rise of everything from gay sex in public, to Britney Spears kissing Madonna on stage, to the decline of real Conservatism’ in public affairs. Ignoring natural law and high standards leads to social degeneration.
What is natural law and why should anyone care? Natural law is the application of reality and common sense to our world. In short the reality of our existence gives us a … Read the rest
