The Eclipse of Reason

Updated: May 17

More than the sun has been blotted out

The current culture has fooled itself that people can "create" their own truth – as though truth is somehow subjective. The idiotic phrase "my truth" and "your truth" is used to shut down any exchange based on logic or reason.

What those phrases actually point to is the person's opinion – which, of course, may or may not have anything to do with the truth. To style an opinion as truth simply because the person believes it is the dictionary definition of idiocy.

Yet, we see this as a daily phenomenon in contemporary society – one glaring example is gender dysphoria, where someone who is objectively one sex or the other (there are only two) declares their truth supersedes science and biology, and that they are in truth the opposite sex. No, they aren't.

But that is just one of the more popular examples and easy to grasp, unless you're a Communist Democrat, of course.

The ability to reason correctly, and then implement that, is what maintains order in a culture and the larger nation. People who commit violent crimes for example, don't get to have their own truth that violence doesn't really mean violence, or homicide is nothing more than a social construct.

Tossing away reason leads to some/many people being victimized, some even killed – ask the 70 million dead American babies through the violence of abortion.

In an effort to help drive home the point that reason must rule, and not be eclipsed, we are reaching into the video vault and presenting to you the first episode of Right Reason from 2012, hosted by the late Dr. Charles Rice of Notre Dame Law School, and co-hosted by Gary Michael Voris.

Let us pray that like the solar eclipse, rationality may once again shine on man as well.

Gary Michael Voris holds a graduate degree, Cum Laude, from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome. Voris earned multiple awards for 40+ years of news media experience for writing, producing, and investigative work from the Associated Press, Detroit Press Club, Michigan Broadcasters Association, as well as four news Emmys in multiple categories. He graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1983 with an undergraduate major in Communications and a minor in History.

Charlie Rice was an awesome force in the pro-life movement. He spoke beautifully, and lived his life accordingly.


Me and my priest uncle are praying for you every day. Glad to see you back Michael.
