When America’s great hero Annie Oakley said, “Families are nothing other than the idolatry of duty.” and “Housework is work directly opposed to the possibility of human self-actualization.” she could have been reading from the modern feminist playbook.
I think she was way ahead of her time.
But Annie Oakley was no man-hater. She worked well with men all her life.
My friend Shelly of Houston seems to me to echo Annie’s spirit when she writes about getting free of a marriage destroyed by her ex-husband’s infidelity:
The American capacity for self correction constantly amazes me.
Robust freedom of speech is at the core of this strength.
I believe that, on many fronts, conservatism in America needs to reinvent itself to fulfull its essential role of preserving the best of America.
