Essay: Free Speech, Hate Speech, & Censorship: Winning the 2020 Elections
~ This essay was the basis of a public speech given on August 15, 2019 in Cumberland, Maine, co-hosted by the Gray and Cumberland Republican Town Committees. Brown is the Chairman of the Gray Republican Committee. You can view that speech here.
First, liberals and conservatives need to join together and affirm that we want to be free and that living a life of freedom requires thought and free-flowing dialogue. Totalitarians don’t like freedom of thought at all.

Government Must Preserve and Defend the Sacred Freedoms of All Individuals
What is government but a collection of individuals working together to manage the affairs of a larger population? As individuals, each government worker has a choice. Will they recognize their equal status with every citizen of their country and work as servants to protect the sacred rights of all, or will they be corrupted by their power, as Lord Acton warned, and steer their government toward tyranny?
Open-Borders Immigration Would Destroy American Sovereignty and Exceptionalism
This is the essay upon which my speech at the Gray Republicans' May 8, 2019 event on the Crisis of Immigration at the Southern Border was based.
In the flurry of opinions about immigration, border walls, compassion for immigrants and their children, economics, and an influx of crime, there is a larger, more urgent, and civilization-changing crisis: the real probability that open-borders immigration would destroy American sovereignty and exceptionalism.
Saving Western Civilization Demands that We Study Islam
~ Presenting a simple resource guide to gain a clear understanding of the REAL Islam

~ Original publication: October, 2018. Updated on May 12, 2019
If Islam were “just a religion,” studying it would not be necessary unless one simply wanted to learn about the religion.

However, Islam is not just a religion. It is also a political ideology that when put into practice results in loss of freedom, violence, and ultimately mass slavery of its populations. To many, this statement may seem “intolerant.” However, those who study Islam in depth, without apology for Islam, and those who study Islam’s historical record, will indeed find that Islam poses an existential threat to free civilizations.

This does not mean that “Muslims are bad.” That would be bigotry...

May 8, 2019 ~ Gray, Maine

Video - Version 2: The True Identity of Humans
~ REVISED AND EXPANDED IN 2019
Sick of #IdentityPolitics? Tired of watching as humans are divided into hostile groups of oppressors versus oppressed by activists who thrive on discord? Do you believe that #AllLivesMatter with sacred, individual rights? It's time to reexamine the true identity of humans!
Identity Politics is a Revenge-Driven Tragedy That Will Make the Whole World Blind
In Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s book Strength to Love, he wrote:
Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.
The healing of the human race requires an adjustment in the values of humanity. When love becomes the most valuable thing of all, then we do indeed have hope to abandon the revenge-driven tragedy of identity politics.
Freedom for One Requires Freedom for All
~ How the Left created a cold civil war and why liberals and conservatives must unite against them
The Left has advanced to the cusp of victory because the United States did not engage a multi-generational enemy with a continual and adequate defense and offense. If an enemy wages a concerted attack against a group of people who are not engaged in fighting back both defensively and offensively, with an absolute commitment to win, it is only a matter of time before the enemy is completely victorious. This is the unfortunate reality of the United States, Canada, and most of Western Europe.
