  • Ideas power men. Men power cultures. Cultures power civilizations. Civilizations power history. Ideas are the fuel of man's mind.
  • It is not a question of whether man chooses to be guided by [philosophy]: he is not equipped to live without it. (Ayn Rand)
  • History is philosophy teaching by example (Lord Bolingbroke)
  • The trouble with nations is that there is an unequal distribution of capitalism. (Rush Limbaugh)
  • Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear. (Thomas Jefferson)

    So far, Muslims have their greatest victory over us by making us shift into defensive living with regard to them. We tread with fear of "offending" them, of inciting world-wide riots by Muslims against us, and of always trying to curry favor with irrationalists. We used to go about life, guided by our own thoughts and desires, and no defensiveness. It is our fault that we let them dominate our behavior. STOP IT! Americans do not live defensively! Let savages fear us!

One-Line Bio

American of Objectivist persuasion trying to preserve, protect, and restore his country to reason, rights, and capitalism.


George Mason
Gender: male
Occupation: Professional (physician specialist)
Location: Fly Over Country : United States
George Mason is my nom de plume. I acknowledge eternal debt to the father of the Bill of Rights, George Mason, one of America's founders. I also acknowledge that this war on America, formally declared by representatives of Islam and undeclared by hosts of anti-Americans, is foremost a war of ideas. That is where our blogging team intend to engage the enemy, and win with rational and good ideas.
Cubed and I are Objectivists philosophically, meaning only that we have steeped ourselves in the philosophy of Ayn Rand since 1965.
Highly talented fellow blogger, Eleanor, has joined the fight with us as a friend and strong ally. GM has also been a Navy physician of several specialities, Cubed is a physician of several specialties, and Eleanor a retired educator.
Since 11 September 2001, all of Sixth Column has been sounding the tocsin to wake up Americans. Check out our website 6th Column Against Jihad and the rest of our internet family, listed on this site, for other, outstanding material.
