Patrick J. Buchanan: “What, then, will hold us together?”

31 July 2017

“We are attempting to convert a republic, European and Christian in its origins and character, into an egalitarian democracy of all the races, religions, cultures and tribes of planet Earth. We are turning America into a gargantuan replica of the U.N. General Assembly, a continental conclave of the most disparate and diverse peoples in all of history, who will have no common faith, no common moral code, no common language and no common culture. What, then, will hold us together?”

    What will hold us together are our core values shared by all people and all religions. All true religions value love, compassion, peace, and justice. All people want to have enough food and shelter, and to raise their families in peace. Of course there are people who do not fit this mold, but I think they’re in the minority, and I think a just and merciful society can deal with them.

      I am sure that you are sincere in the sentiment you expressed, and that you mean well. But I think that you are wrong in your belief that. “All true religions value love, compassion, peace, and justice.” It is simply wrong to believe that all the major world religions place equal value on love, compassion, peace, and justice, or even to believe that they define them in the same way.

      Well meaning platitudes, meant to placate very real enemies, often have the effect of surrendering our own distinct values, and the fundamental transformation our society in quite negative ways. Ever since the serpent slithered into the Garden of Eden, there have been forces of evil on earth that actively seek to destroy all that is good and true. Has there ever been a time when we should coexist with that?
