L E T T E R F RO M T H E PUBLISHER For most of us, “2020” is one year we want to forget. Let’s look ahead to 2021. While doing so, have a cup of coffee or favorite beverage and a

sweet treat you saved for moments like these. We can see the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, and it is somewhere in the New Year. Let’s plan on celebrating The New Year on or about April 30th. I am sure it will have a different look and feel than November 2020.

With the recent positive developments of vaccines being ready for those who choose to receive them, it is time to reflect and make plans for getting to that demarcation line where life might begin to return to normal in 2021. To help this cause in getting all of us to next year, you will find “The Distillery Channel” has

begun a new Facebook Group called “The Craft Beverage & Culinary Tour Lovers”. Please join if you so choose. It is fun and gathers information pertaining to bars breweries, coffee shops, distilleries, moonshiners, restaurants, destinations and wineries across America that our group members provide.

We want to support the owners of these establishments as they are trying to keep their

doors open for a few more months, while keeping their employees fully engaged. This is a Facebook Group where you can tell us about your favorite places in your own hometown, or ones that are your favorites nationally.

We would also hope that you look at our Facebook Page; “The Next Taste”. Our Facebook

page is full of our podcast shows called “The Next Taste on Tour” and our series called “The Next Taste”. We have features about sports, travel, health, dining and fun interviews from individuals across the nation following the PGA Touring stops throughout the year.

Let us know about interesting places you have visited and want us to feature on our podcast

and/or magazine. Our weekly podcasts have made us aware of and have featured many establishments by our listeners.

Please be safe and enjoy the holiday season in a manner that your keeps all your family

members safe. I am a grandfather. Even though my grandchildren and sons live less than 30 minutes away, we are going to be together using Zoom during this holiday season. I want to be here in 2021 to celebrate all of their birthdays, 4th of July, anniversaries, life’s success and holidays next year.

Staying home for a few more weeks seems of little consequence in our family and helps

ensure we will be here and healthy for our celebrations in 2021.

All the Best, Randy Weckerly Publisher

HOLLISTER, MISSOURI– Of

all the hugely, relatively new, successful golf resorts in America, two of the most popular are also the most unlikely.

Just 20 years ago, Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, founded by American Greeting Card company CEO and links golf lover, Mike Keiser, set the standard on the remote Oregon coast. But just a decade later, in equally remote but scenic land on the edge of the Ozarks Mountains, Johnny Morris has done the same. A hunting and fishing devotee, with no real interest in golf himself, but with a great appreciation for the outdoors, Morris built, as its marketing slogan states truthfully, “America’s Next Great Golf Destination.”

The latest manifestation of that is

the newly opened Payne’s Valley Golf Course, named for native son Payne Stewart, which is the first public course designed by Tiger Woods working with architect Beau Welling.

The Woods course, which opened

this fall after a lavish opening exhibition overseen by Woods and friends, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and Justin Rose, joined courses designed by Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Ben Crenshaw and top architect Tom Fazio.

Amazingly, especially considering its

humble outdoor beginnings, Morris, the CEO of the equally successful Bass Pro hunting and fishing super stores, has assembled an A-List of golf course designers. They’ve assembled a golf resort powerhouse, Big Cedar Golf, along with nearby Big Cedar Lodge, which shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.

Quite a collection for someone who

doesn’t play golf, but is, “always up for an adventure,” according to Morris’ wife Jeanie.

“We are building an experience unlike

anything that’s been done before that will bring golfers of all ages and skill levels together and create lasting memories,” Morris said.

The new Woods course is getting all

the attention these days and rightfully so. With only a few courses to his name so far, Woods followed the same fun-comes-first design philosophy which he used successfully at his Bluejack National golf course outside of Houston.

“I have wide landing areas, open green

fronts, and tightly mowed green surroundings,” he said.

“Wide landing areas off the tee mean less

lost golf balls, making the game more enjoyable and helping to speed up play. Open green fronts allow for golf balls to be bounced up onto the greens adding to the available shot options and giving shorter hitters an alternative to the high shot with lots of spin".

“I want the ground to be a

player’s friend,” Woods added. “Tightly mowed green surroundings allow players the option of using everything from a putter to a lob wedge when recovering from a missed green. I believe this allows players to play to their strengths versus forcing them to hit a lob wedge out of thick rough. It also promotes creativity.”

All this is available to the paying

public who find their way to his remote Southern Missouri location without any major airport service nearby, constantly proving if you build it and make it fun, they will come.

“Some of my greatest memories are

growing up playing golf alongside my dad at public courses. I want to create courses were future generations can share those same experiences and I can play with my kids,” Woods added.


The Distillery Channel Journal

In fact, if Payne’s Valley, set in an

actual valley ringed by the Ozarks Mountains and hundreds of acres of forest, wasn’t fun enough, Morris came up with the idea of a 19th hole, perfect for settling bets, overlooking a short par 3, over water, backed by a huge mountain and waterfall.

It’s an overload for the senses, where

you can end your round on a great note, a watery one or certainly a scenic one with a twisted ride to the top of the hill and the unique spire topped clubhouse.

“I want to see a lot of birdies made here,”

Woods said, “I have always felt that golf is about bringing people together and this has served as my inspiration to design fun and playable courses.”

At Payne’s Valley, you can consider that mission accomplished.

The original golf course here, Buffalo

Ridge Springs, reopened in 2014 after it originally began life as Branson Creek Golf Course designed by Fazio in 1999. It still offers stunning views of waterfalls, mountain streams, covered bridge and, yes, Buffalo grazing just to the left of the first tee.

Right next to the hilly Springs Course

is the 13-hole par 3 Mountain Top short course designed by Gary Player and opened in 2017. It wraps around the Buffalo Springs clubhouse and can be walked and played with only a couple of short irons.

Like many great courses, Mountain

Top puts one good hole after another good hole, one scenic view after scenic view until, it all melts into one very satisfying walk in the park.

Before the Woods course opened, the

newest course on site was the Crenshaw and Bill Coore course Ozarks National opened in early 2018, featuring their minimalistic design philosophy and taking over some of the land which was a former John Daly designed layout.

The views are not as dramatic as

Buffalo Ridge, but the wider views of the scenic surroundings are breathtaking. Plus, there is room for pleasant hunting fields along several of the holes.

When you’re tired of that fabulous

foursome of courses, you can head back across the highway to the lavish Big Cedar Lodge Resort with all manner of lodging, links and libation.

There are many natural caves which

dot the grounds and can be accessed by an hour-long golf cart tour, and the artifact museum, which takes up part of the two-story facility. Morris also commissioned Nicklaus to design a rollicking and tumbling par 3 golf course. Titled Top of the Rock, it’s 9 holes of pure fun with many of the short holes looking directly out at Table Rock Lake.

Of course, all those golfing lodging

and activity can make a person powerful hungry and Big Cedar has you covered here as well.

In fact, the biggest problem here is

there is often not enough lodging for all the newcomers who want to try out the great golf. You can choose between cabins, multistory lodging, traditional hotel or outdoor campground, and there is plenty to see and do, but you better choose in a hurry.

Big Cedar has a large spa, a resort

style pool, miles of scenic trails and a huge, ‘fun mountain,’ with all kinds of games and indoor activities for the young and young at heart.

The Osage Steakhouse sits on the top

floor of the Top of the Rock clubhouse and offers majestic steaks to go along with majestic views. The Buffalo Bar and Grill is at the lower level of the clubhouse and offers more casual fare and with an equally splendid view.


The Distillery Channel Journal

Devils Pool is another fine choice near

the resort pool with the Buzzard Bar as a great place to toast your good fortune of being at a place this unexpectedly nice, long into the night.

Never has an America golf resort

destination provided a more expectantly pleasant surprise as golfers by the thousands are now discovering at Big Cedar Lodge and Golf.

reservations and tee times.

Of course, Truman’s CafÊ and

Custard is the perfect start to another day with strong coffee and sweet treats.

Everyone has that “close to one’s

heart - out of the way place” we call our own. A coffee nook in our hometown, a favorite off road up north hamburger/beer joint or even a place our Grampa took us as a kid, where we now contemplate memories of our cherished time together. We even defer our time today to many Starbucks, many locations where we claim our own private table throughout each day with our iPad or iPhone in hand and find instant isolation.

I remember sharing my first true

Cuban Coffee in Key West, Florida located in the wharf at the end of Route 1, but on the east side of the road, where none other than locals who guided us would know about this culture and tradition. It was a coffee shop not recommended by appearance or location. One would not venture to arrive alone on most days. It was rugged and surly from the outside; and even more so once passing the threshold of the so-called front door. A dry rotted door that could fall off its hinges at any time if encouraged to do so.

As the publisher of this magazine we

decided to create a virtual spot where we could have fun while we all wait out the pandemic. You will find a new Facebook Group – “Craft Beverage & Culinary Tour Lovers”, which supports the outreach of identifying a community of such eclectic places. You can become a member, contributor and enjoyer of this community.

Admittedly, in my life, I remember

having great cups of French Onion soup in Washington D.C. on a rainy day with my wife. I could never recreate that time in feel or context in any other place, even at home or at the many places we enjoyed together traveling across the United States.

Experiencing life fully in travel, both

worldwide and domestically, was my past for several decades. “The Distillery Channel” was inaugurated in 2014 to visit and enjoy destinations of the small craft world in all fifty states.

I never thought I would be spending a pandemic shut down year like 2020. I remember my childhood when polio was the pandemic and we received our sugar cubes infused with vaccine in 1960. We all gladly lined up in the local Masonic Temple. We had no option of taking it or not. However, we did comply, and we never worried about polio again. It was over.

To support this activity, we

created “Craft Beverage & Culinary Tour Lovers” which supports the virtual delivery very well. To date, we have had over 1400 join the group to celebrate their ideas of favorite places while becoming a member. This group is marked private, but please join. “The Distillery Channel” team marked it private so that we can see who is joining and welcome each aboard as they join.

We didn’t want this year to escape

from us in any form of our experience in the world. However, being in my “senior years”, my family requested that I remain in the “bubble”. I have complied. But it did not shut down “The Distillery Channel’s” creative juices. We initiated a new show found on most major podcast platforms, “The Next Taste on Tour”, which features and follows the world of sports; and in particular professional golf. As our staff travels from city to city, we interview the world’s elite professional golfers while researching breweries, coffee shops, diners, distilleries and wineries on those that are out of the way often become our favorites. Sometimes we rely on local advice pertaining to those we don’t visit in person, as we also want to include local destinations week to week.

“The Distillery Channel’s” Miss Kira,

host on “The Next Taste on Tour” podcast travels to most destination’s live or virtually that the PGA Tour follows week to week. While in Las Vegas, Nevada for two weeks this year covering two back to back tournaments, Miss Kira’s Instagram account grew substantially in numbers and likes. Everybody loves Miss Kira, who brings her grace and incredible positive personality to the tour interviews. You can follow her on Instagram handle is @miss_kirap as she goes to some pretty cool places. Guarantee you will find her outreach and any inspirational and fascinating. She even had a major golf professional contact her to see if he could become a partner in “The Distillery Channel Coffee, LLC”. Now wouldn’t that be a great partner for Miss Kira to bring to a quiet out of the way coffee shop while covering the tour?

Let’s take a look at a couple of the

group members posts to see if they would pique your interest in visiting.

Miss Kira and I did a feature on “Code Rum” with owner Johnny Ringo. We refer to him as our own featured real Pirate. He sent us some of his “Code Rum- Rum Cakes” which we enjoyed opening and tasting during our unboxing on our Facebook Page. If I could only directly convey the heavy rich taste of these rum cakes across the technology I would do so. However, you can order them online as a great Christmas present.


The Distillery Channel Journal

We also have visited both “Tall Pines

Distillery” locations in Pennsylvania and Missouri. Situated in the mountains in Pennsylvania or among rolling hills of Missouri, you will find passionate and kind owners. Through hard work and expertise, Keith Welch and Tara Cook and their spouses produce multiple flavors of moonshine, like “Pine Sap” and “Café Mocha”, which today is presented in their “Tall Pines Distillery” infused coffees.

My personal favorite coffee shop that

I have learned about is “Café de Foy” located in Troyes, France. Many friends have visited this location and expressed a multitude of attributes including specialty treats, great coffee and a full working adult beverage bar. Included is its rich history is a claim to the location where the French Revolution began in 1789. My mother’s maiden name is Foy and Café de Foy is a destination I would like to visit.

Hopefully, in 2021 we can again go to

our nooks and crannies, enjoy friendship, conversation or even old school, read a book or local newspaper. I yearn for that one spectacular coffee and friend or my son and family sitting across from to enjoy the simple things in life we took for granted in 2019. I am ready to travel and enjoy life once again, while taking notes for our journal.

5 Ways to Overcome Overeating During the Holidays Written By: Dina Garcia, RD, LDN


The Distillery Channel Journal

65

Holiday Tip: Make an intention to

unplug from phones, computers, and other reading materials (aka magazines), so you can tune in to your body and the food you are eating.

3. Understand Your Triggers.

1. Practice Self Care. Rest, exercise, and stress management are essential components of a healthy life, and when ignored, it's easy to turn to foods high in sugar and fat as a way to manage one's energy and emotions. The fact is, stress increases cortisol, a hormone that increases appetite levels. Therefore, being stressed can lead to increased hunger, overeating, and, ultimately, weight gain. By making a conscious effort to practice self-care by reducing stress, you can help prevent overeating.

Empower yourself for success by understanding what foods or situations might increase your risk to overeat or binge. Simply by understanding your struggles can help prevent or at least reduce the frequency of overeating episodes.

Holiday Tip: Remove temptation

from your fridge, pantry, or office stash. Share your goals with someone close to you and make a conscious effort not to bring leftover foods home that are tempting.

Holiday Tip: Maintain a regular

sleep and exercise schedule and find a buddy to keep you accountable during this busy season. Manage stress by listening to music, gardening, practicing yoga, meditation, exercise, and breathing techniques.

2. Minimize Distractions. From

scrolling through your Facebook feed during lunch or eating popcorn while watching your favorite TV show, being distracted during mealtime causes you to overeat. Distracted eating can also cause you to eat more food later in the day because you do not realize or remember what you consumed.

4. Journal. Use a food and mood diary to help identify patterns and triggers around overeating. Record what you ate, who you were with, how you felt before you ate, how you felt during the meal, and how you felt after. Over time you can reflect and see what food or situations might trigger a binge episode.


66 The Distillery Channel Journal

Holiday Tip: Practice identifying

the emotion before eating your feelings. Were you hungry? Anxious? Angry? Lonely? Tired? Bored? Embarrassed? While it can be uncomfortable to sit through and feel your feelings, it can also be powerful to realize the emotions will pass. That food is only a temporary fix to your feelings.

5. Eat on a regular schedule. Avoid the temptation to save up your calories by not eating all day so you can indulge in dinner or party foods. Waiting to eat until you are starving only leads to overeating! Eating well-balanced meals and snacks regularly help stabilize blood sugars and hunger levels, ultimately empowering you to not overeat later in the day.

Holiday Tip: Aim to fuel and

nourish your body regularly by incorporating plant-based fats, lean protein, and high fiber foods at meals and snacks.

If you struggle with overeating, the

holiday season can be particularly challenging. While the tips listed above are an excellent place to start, they are just the beginning. Schedule a session, and we can work on specific strategies for you, empowering you for a healthy and happy holiday and beyond!

So, you overindulged? Do's and Don’ts While sharing ways to help empower you not to overeat is important, I want to also give a real and practical advice for what happens if you do overeat. Here are three things not to do next

time you eat too much.

Don’t vow to go on a diet or cleanse. As

tempting as it might sound, going on a diet or a cleanse is the worst thing you can do after binge. The truth is that dieting and restrictive eating usually backfires and sets you up for the binge-starve cycle that triggers food cravings and the urge to overeat. Avoid banning or restricting certain foods and instead focus on eating in moderation. Overeating one meal is not going to cause you to gain weight. The problem occurs when overeating becomes a regular habit.

Beware of your self-talk. Telling

yourself how “terrible” or “fat” you are will only set you up to feel defeated and depressed, increasing the chances of turning to food for comfort and eventually overeating.


The Distillery Channel Journal

67

Do give yourself grace for being human. Do forgive yourself and move on. Do remember all the beautiful and wonderful things your body can do. Do know that you are enough. Do make an effort to slow down and tune into the foods you are eating at your next meal or snack.

Thrive vs. Survive Mindset ‘Battling the Pandemic’ Written By: AJ McAdam


The Distillery Channel Journal

73


74 The Distillery Channel Journal

We are now, as a planet, for the first

time in our history, faced with a challenge unprecedented by most of us alive today, especially the younger generations. This pandemic we are all facing has affected us in many different ways, some much worse than others. I want to be sensitive to those who have lost family and their livelihoods. There has been a lot of loss and there will be more. Regardless, we are still faced with a choice of how to react. How does anyone deal with such a difficult time?

This time we are all experiencing is not

easy, pushing many of us to our limits, but we can still break the learned behaviors that harm us and are unhealthy by taking on a “Thrive” mentality. Thriving and being positive doesn’t mean you have become an idealistic, super bubbly person, just wishing your troubles away, but rather choosing to look for the good in life and sharing that energy and emotions with others.

There are no right answers because

our situations are all unique, but instead we can take a stand with our mindset and our actions.

Unfortunately, there are those out there, a lot of them, who when asked how they are coping through this time, generally say something like, … “Well, we are surviving somehow”. Now to most, this might sound pretty positive, but buried in this answer is a mindset of someone who is acting like a victim, someone who blames their circumstances solely on the things around them that they feel they don’t control. They don’t realize that this mentality is negative at all.

“The Key to Successful Leadership is Influence, Not Authority.” -Kenneth Blanchard

So just maybe, instead of following the

easier path and pushing blame on the pandemic, we could take on a “thriving” leadership type role. Be the type of person who stops the trend, turns negative into positive, and doesn’t let the behaviors of others impact their lives. Be the one who passes on effective, good habits that strengthen and build others in positive ways.


The Distillery Channel Journal

75


76 The Distillery Channel Journal

Let’s choose to build, choose to create, and choose to lift up those around us. Let’s choose to believe in ourselves and do the right thing. Thrive versus Survive, which do you choose?

We all have a choice to make. Life is

not about what happens to us along our journey, it’s how we react to those things! Could we all react a little better? Could we all do something to help move this world forward versus trying to pull it down?

There is a fundamental difference

between those who get knocked down and stay down, versus those who get back up. Which do you choose to be?

If the human spirit and will power to

drive us forward will not be squashed, then this time in history can be seen in a different light for the generations yet to come.

Spanish Armada

What Difference Did It Make? ALL the Difference Written By: Robert Mills

88 The Distillery Channel Journal

Hinge Points in History – Instances Where One Man, or a Single Event, Changed the Course of History There have been moments in history

where a single determined person, battle, or natural event, forced destiny down one path instead of another, an event which forever changed what occurred afterward. This article, the third in a series for "The Distillery Channel", explores another example of history shaping phenomena.

The Protestant Wind – How the Failure of this Spanish Armada Enshrined Religious and Political Tolerance as Defining Values of Western Civilization

In 1588, King Phillip II of Spain

finished building the Spanish Armada, the vast naval fleet of 130 ships he intended to use to invade England. Financed by the prodigious quantities of silver pouring in from the New World, Phillip’s ambitions were breathtakingly sweeping. He sought no less than to hang Queen Elizabeth, the leading proponent of Protestantism, subjugate the English, and crush Protestantism - not only in England but throughout the world. With the immense Armada, Phillip II now had the military wherewithal to achieve this history altering objective.

The English watched in horror as the

massive invasion of their island was being readied, but they were anything but passive. They frantically scavenged thru churches and castles, grabbing and melting down anything made of lead for cannon balls. They raced to build barriers and defensive positions all along the invasion route up the Thames river to Buckingham Palace. Simultaneously, Sir Francis Drake and other English privateers launched daring preemptive attacks using fire ships (unmanned ships set afire and aimed directly into the Spanish fleet while it was vulnerable at anchor) and nighttime raids to sink and burn many Armada ships. They attacked them while they were still in port, first in Lisbon and then again in France, where the Armada had sailed to take on soldiers for the invasion.

When the huge Armada, its Galleons

now laden with soldiers, horses, and cannon for the invasion, at last ventured out into the English Channel bound for England, it was set upon by Queen Elizabeth’s outnumbered, but fiercely determined navy. In the ensuing historic naval Battle of Gravelines, the more maneuverable English warships and their superior naval guns sank still more of the lumbering Spanish Galleons. In the midst of this ferocious fight, a powerful Southwest wind suddenly arose, pushing the Armada eastward away from England. The winds grew so strong that they threatened to run the entire Armada aground on the Dutch coast.

At this point, the Spanish made the fateful decision to call off the invasion and return to Spain by sailing north, counterclockwise, around the British Isles. When the Armada reached the Scottish coast, it was struck by yet another even more ferocious storm, this one roaring out of the North Sea. Hurricane winds from the north, which historians called “the Protestant Wind”, devastated the Armada, crashing many of its ships into the jagged rocky shores of Scotland where they were torn to pieces by raging surf. When the hapless Spanish sailors and soldiers tried to swim ashore, they were savagely set upon and slaughtered on the beaches by the local populace. The Armada ultimately lost a staggering 20,000 sailors and soldiers, and what was left of it limped back to Spain defeated.

Had the Armada succeeded in

landing its thousands of troops on English soil, it would likely have been able to overthrow Queen Elizabeth and absorb both England and the Netherlands into the Spanish Empire. Phillip II had long made clear he intended to use this victory to join with the Pope and the other Catholic countries in seeking to crush Protestantism in Europe, suppress science and religious dissent, and enforce rigid Catholic orthodoxy throughout the world.

I.

How the Failure of the Spanish

Armada Led to the Adoption by Both Catholics and Protestants Alike of the Radical New Doctrine of Tolerance

At the time the Armada set sail, with

the exception of the gigantic Armada itself, the Protestant and Catholic forces throughout Europe were roughly evenly matched. Had the Armada succeeded in its mission of subjugating England, by far the richest and most powerful of the Protestant nations, that would have put the Catholic forces in a position to impose their will on all the Protestants and end the Great Catholic-Protestant Schism by returning Europe to Catholic orthodoxy.

But the inability of either side to gain

sufficient dominance to win this dispute consigned both Catholics and Protestants in Europe to seemly endless bloody and inconclusive religious warfare. This futile slaughter reached its apex during the Thirty Years War from 1618-1648 when, in a frenzy of sectarian violence, Catholic and Protestant villages set in upon each other with swords, hacking even women and children to death. By the time these murderous rampages ebbed in 1648, a staggering one half of the entire population of what is now Germany lay dead. And these horrors were not limited to Germans. Throughout Europe, the Thirty Years War left widespread death and destruction.

At this point, a painful reality began to

Instead of a decisive Catholic victory,

however, the Armada’s defeat returned the two Christian sects to their earlier positions of roughly equal strength, each being unable to impose their will on the other side. However, both Sects viewed the other’s practices and interpretations of Scripture as not just wrong, but so intolerable and offensive that the will of God commanded both sides to make unrestrained all-out religious war against the other’s heresy, a fight to the death if necessary.

dawn on both Catholics and Protestants alike -victory in its traditional sense was unattainable. Had either side been able to achieve hegemony, things would have turned out entirely differently. But in Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries, no matter how ruthlessly or determinedly either side continued this vicious and bloodthirsty religious war, they lacked the resources to be able to defeat or otherwise impose their will on the other side. The continued resort to violence only guaranteed further futile slaughter.

And for generations that is exactly

what each side pursued, again and again, by all means available.

This painful realization ultimately

forced both sides to adopt a new and radical idea, one that they had resisted for centuries and which was totally at odds with traditional values -the doctrine of tolerance -the notion that people could peacefully coexist while adhering to deeply conflicting religious views.

II.

How the New Doctrine of

Tolerance Became the Defining Characteristic of the West


92 The Distillery Channel Journal

One of the most important impacts

Prior to this, essentially the whole

world, including even the Catholic and Protestant belligerents themselves, adhered to what are called “Honor Culture� values, meaning that neither dissent nor differing practices were tolerated, especially on religious matters or against established authority. In an Honor Culture, those who dissent, or protest are viewed as dishonoring their culture and its leaders. Honor Cultures believe that they have a moral obligation to silence, jail, or kill those who dishonor their culture by dissent or protest. The new doctrine of tolerance completely reversed this outlook. As this change gained widespread acceptance, it profoundly altered the way that the nations who adopted it handled not only internal religious and political differences, but even scientific discoveries.

III. How the Absence of Tolerance Would

Have Profoundly Altered the Modern World.

that intolerance would have had on Western Civilization is illustrated by what its impact would have been on science. During the 16th and 17th Centuries, the new scientific disciplines of astronomy and physics were rapidly developing. As new scientific discoveries began to become known, such as heliocentrism (that the earth revolves around the sun), the Honor Culture of the Catholic Church, backed by the powerful monarchies of Spain, Portugal, began to feel that its monopoly of explanations of the physical world were being contradicted and threatened. The Church viewed any scientific theory or even observation that appeared to contradict its interpretations of Scripture as heresy. As a result, in the early 17th Century the Church launched a new Inquisition to take on science itself.

Earlier Inquisitions had already

banned the teaching, and even the reading, of Copernican doctrines (that the sun is the center of the solar system and the earth goes the sun). Thus, the discovery of the moons of Jupiter, by the famed Italian astronomer and physicist, Galileo, in 1610, and his writing about those observations, which had obvious heliocentric implications, was viewed as heresy. Thus, in 1616, and again in 1633, the Inquisition accused Galileo of heresy. In both cases, after a trial, Galileo’s discoveries, and their evidence-based support for the sun-centered view of the solar system, were found to be false and contrary to Holy Scripture.


The Distillery Channel Journal

93

After the 1616 trial, Galileo was

ordered “not to teach, discuss, or defend the claim that the sun stands still and the earth moves around it, and henceforth not to hold, teach, or defend such views in any way, orally or in writing.”

Galileo did not fully obey this

injunction and as a result he was again tried by the Inquisition in 1633, found guilty of heresy, and sentenced to house arrest for life.

What happened to Galileo is

significant because it illustrates but one example of the worldwide effort by the Honor Culture of the Catholic Church, and its many powerful allies among the royalty of Europe, to impose by force a single narrow orthodoxy regarding religion, science, philosophy, and political expression.

They almost succeeded. Had the

Spanish Armada achieved its goals, science would have been suppressed, and the scientific revolution, which was just beginning, would have been crushed. The many scientific discoveries which led to the modern world would have remained unknown, perhaps for centuries.

This is just one way that the success

of the Honor Culture would have profoundly altered the course of Western civilization.

It is important to note that both

Catholics and Protestants were Honor Cultures and had either succeeded in defeating or dominating the other, the concept of tolerance would likely have never been accepted by either side. Tolerance arose, and was adopted by the West, because neither side could win.

IV.

How the adoption of political

tolerance sets “the west” apart from the rest of the world.

The adoption of tolerance defines the

essential cultural and political difference between the West and the rest of the world, especially with the West’s main rivals, such as Russia and China.

There have always been many striking

examples of how differently from the West that Honor Cultures handle dissent. In the Honor Culture of Russia, dissidents were originally sent to Siberia, and more recently jailed, “disappeared”, and even put in mental institutions. For generations, Chinese dissidents have also been punished for dissent. Recently, we have witnessed China suppressing free speech and assembly rights in Hong Kong. Booksellers in Hong Kong who sell books critical of the ruling Communist Party have been “disappeared”, Chinese doctors in Wuhan who tried to warn of the threat of Covid-19 were fired, jailed, or “disappeared”.


94 The Distillery Channel Journal

While Russia and China are the

West’s biggest rivals, they are far from alone in their Honor Culture practices. Most of the rest of the world remain Honor Cultures. To note but one glaring example (among many) of a contemporary Honor Culture, Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi Arabian national and journalist for the Washington Post, was only a mild dissident, often articulately defending the Saudi Arabian government. Nevertheless, for his occasional disagreements with the Saudi government, he was brutally murdered in 2019 by agents of the Saudi government when he went to the Saudi Embassy in Istanbul, Turkey, to get papers so he could marry.

The similar stories from around the

world are routinely reported in the media. These reports showcase the vast differences in how countries in the tolerant West versus Honor Cultures treat their respective citizens who disagree with their country’s practices or current government.

V.

The failure of the Spanish

Armada is responsible changing the course of history.

If the Spanish Armada had

succeeded in its goals, today there would likely be no tolerance, no Protestant churches, no Reformation, no science, no opposing political parties, no concept of the notion of free speech or religious freedom. And, there would likely be few, if any, democracies in the world. We owe all of this, the bedrock of what we call “the West”, to a single hinge point in history, the failure of the Spanish Armada.

Twice in the 13th Century, huge

Chinese invasions of Japan failed due to sudden storms. The Japanese call these storms “the Kamikaze”, which means “Divine Wind” in Japanese. Historians, invoking the Kamikaze, have called the storms which savaged the Armada “the Protestant Wind”.

That wind made all the difference.
