How Abraham Lincoln Defeated ‘Vox Populi’ and Saved the Nation  

by Susan Welsh

To solve the crisis of civilization that we face today, there is no better, or more inspiring, model to study, than Abraham Lincoln. Given the halo that now surrounds the memory of that martyred President, it is easy to lose sight of how very difficult his victory was, over those who sought to destroy the United States. In Lincoln’s battle against crazed popular opinion, the “vox populi,” he wielded the most powerful weapons at his disposal: creative reason, humor, and “firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right.” It is no wonder that, even now, the British oligarchy and its stateside lackeys are trying to eradicate his memory.
