Apology for infrequent posts

I’d like to apologize for my irregular posting habits lately.

I don’t usually like to discuss my personal business here (a reader warned me that it isn’t a good idea for obvious reasons) but I am still dealing with some fairly troublesome health issues, which will be a long-term thing. So it’s hard to keep up regular habits under the circumstances.

I have to say in all honesty that it’s hard not to feel demoralized and discouraged what with the state of the world these days. The infighting on the various blogs is out of hand in some cases. There seem to be so many provocateurs and shills, people who seem to be there just to disrupt and derail any constructive conversation.

And it’s disturbing to see that ideas are now being criminalized, and how strange that the ideas that are being criminalized are basically the traditional American points-of-view that were held by a large majority of our population up until a couple of decades ago. Our ancestors would be guilty of all kinds of ‘offenses’ by today’s new code of ”morality.”

So we who put our thoughts and ideas out there have to learn to be very careful not to inadvertently say the ‘wrong’ thing according to the arbiters of the ever-changing PC codes. That’s not conducive to honesty in self-expression, and the blogger or commenter has to be careful not to veer too close to the proscribed Truth.

It’s hard to maintain morale under these circumstances. But I try to rally my spirits and keep on going, though things don’t exactly look bright.

Regardless, I appreciate anyone who stops by this blog and reads, despite my lack of inspiration and energy lately.

  1. Your contributions to Angloism and Americanism on the internet do matter. Things do look grim.
    The lack of initiative displayed by our people is astounding. We have a responsibility to stop this nonsense.
    Best wishes

    • Puritan, thanks for your words of encouragement. I always have good intentions of keeping up with the blog(s) but with the apparent strictures on our ability to speak and write freely it can be worrying at times. But as long as I can continue I intend to do so, as best I can.
      Believe me, I appreciate my readers and especially those who are good enough to leave comments, especially intelligent ones. 🙂
