Keep Calm and Carry On

My annual birthday-month fund-raising drive for Behind the Black is now on-going. Not only do your donations help pay my bills, they give me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.


Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.


Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

Or with a subscription with regular donations from your Paypal or credit card account:

If Paypal doesn't work for you, you can support Behind The Black directly by sending your donation by check, payable to Robert Zimmerman, to

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

An evening pause: On the anniversary of one of the darkest days of both American history and Western civilization, this simple message echoing down from World War II tells us exactly what we should do.

Hat tip to Tim.

    “Keep Calm And Carry On” vs. “What difference, at this point, does it make.”

    Where are our modern day Churchills, Pattons, Grants and Shermans?

    Where have unabashed masculine role models gone to say nothing of true leadership?

    Is this what modern feminism and cultural tolerance/relativism have wrought?…Yes, sadly.

  • I think Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Scott Walker have illustrated some of that unabashed leadership you long for. Cruz’s willingness to walk out of an event this week when he was booed for supporting Israel is especially indicative of his courage and determination to stand for what is right.

    All of these men are politicians, so I must add that I will always regard them with some skepticism. Nothing they say will mean as much to me as what they do. Nonetheless, these men give me hope because of their willingness to do the politically incorrect thing repeatedly.

    Well said, and I agree with your trepidation as they are “politicians”. I guess I am searching for true staesmen/women, and that is why I support term limits. Career politicians that start out pennyless and retire multimilionaires as lobbyists on K Street must end or the idea of a true representative republic is moot.

    Consider that forced term limits may spawn even more lobbyists. In the end there is no perfect solution but on we must trudge.
