Thomas Wolfe s Civil War

An anthology of Thomas Wolfe’s short stories, novel excerpts, and plays illuminating the Civil War. This collection of Thomas Wolfe’s writings demonstrates the centrality of the Civil War to Wolfe’s literary concerns and identity. From Look Homeward, Angel to The Hill Beyond and The Web and the Rock, Wolfe perpetually returned to the themes of loss, dissolution, sorrow, and romance engendered in the minds of many southerners by the Civil War and its lingering aftermath. His characters reflect time and again on Civil War heroes and dwell on ghostlike memories handed down by their mothers, fathers, and grandfathers. Wolfe and his protagonists compare their contemporary southern landscape to visions they have conjured of its appearance before and during the war, thereby merging the past with the present in an intense way. Ultimately, Wolfe’s prose style—incantatory and rhapsodic—is designed to evoke the national tragedy on an emotional level. Selections of Wolfe’s writings in this collection include short stories ("Chickamauga," "Four Lost Men," "The Plumed Knight"), excerpts from his novels (O Lost, the restored version of Look Homeward, Angel, The Hills Beyond, and Of Time and the River) and a play, Mannerhouse, edited and introduced by David Madden. Madden, who makes the provocative claim that everything a southern writer writes derives from the Civil War experience, also highlights many issues essential to understanding Wolfe’s absorption with the Civil War.

Liberal Betrayal of America and the Tea Party Firestorm

On November 4, 2008 the American people elected a virtually unknown, untried, and inexperienced but charismatic community organizer from the streets of Chicago as President of the United States. His campaign had promised little more than "Hope," "Change," and "Yes We Can," with an occasional vague reference to "transformative" change. The new President, exalting himself and his associates as "the ones we have been waiting for," lost no time in imposing an enormous expansion of layered bureaucratic power through regulation, takeovers, intimidation, and ruinous debt to replace the institutions of American Liberty. Barack Hussein Obama tells us that America is no longer an exceptional nation; no longer a Christian nation; and acts as though it were no longer a constitutional nation. The result is a genuine coup d'etat; and the meaning of "transformative" change becomes all too clear. Call it sociofascism. The ground for this shocking "change" was prepared when the campus riots of the 1960s opened a culture war against America. Over the decades this became a full-fledged Civil War to capture or destroy American institutions of Liberty, and is now merged with the Obama regime. But in their jackboot haste to effect their purpose the new commanders stepped on a sleeping giant, and aroused its fury. "We the people" saw "transformative" change exposed for what it is. The Tea Parties were born, and a broad citizen-based counter-attack against those who would destroy America began barely a month after the new regime took office. Liberal Betrayal of America and the Tea Party Firestorm is the story of how this has happened, and what the future prospects for America may be.
