CHAPTER TWO – THOSE DARN TREES ARE OBSTRUCTING THE FOREST

COLLECTIVISM: Collectivism is the subjugation of the individual to a group – whether to a race, class or state does not matter. Man must be chained to collective action and collective thought for the sake of what is called ‘the common good’. Statism has always been the political corollary of collectivism.

ALTRUISM: The foundation of collectivism and statism. The basic principle of altruism is that man has no right to exist for his own sake, that service to others is the only justification of his existence, and that self-sacrifice is his highest moral duty, virtue and value.

It looks like a propeller or whirligig to me but apparently some associate it with the German symbol of National Socialism, the swastika, although backwards. The city reacted quickly, amending the perceived micro-aggression by removing the entire coat of arms, leaving only the lettering.

There has been a long tradition of iconoclastic forceful elimination of symbols of oppression, both political and religious, from 8th...

Missionaries find a welcome in Gallup

Gallup has always welcomed visitors, of any rank or significance down to the utterly desperate. Some arrive in expensive cars, some in beat up jalopies, but all find a welcome that in the writer’s experience is not always easy to find in other venues.

The road to Gallup for most has been Historic Route 66, up until the time I-40 was finished. For Dave Pickett, his personal road was not nearly as wide or straight before he came here.

It was a friend from Sri Lanka – a former Hindu priest converted to Christianity – that first sparked the interest of  Pickett to this area.

Dave had traveled through before, taking a road trip from Oklahoma to Los Angeles on the Mother-road, or...
