Good stuff from Joshua Snyder
  • Just asking. Chronicles’ resident curmudgeon: What happens to a “service economy” when people no longer have the money to pay for service? And several more good questions.
  • An ex-Christian Zionist faces facts on Israel. Toynbee: The treatment of the Palestinian Arabs in 1947 (and 1948) was as morally indefensible as the slaughter of six million Jews by the Nazis. Though nor comparable in quantity to the crimes of the Nazis, it was comparable in quality.
  • South Dakota and its native people on abortion: I would imagine that having been the subject of genocide might make a group a little bit focused on keeping the generational train on the tracks.
  • Taki’s John Zmirak is spot-on regarding being an actually Catholic RC in America: From a mass religion that exercised a sweaty grip on the minds of tens of millions, the American church in the past 40 years has become something very different: An exotic, almost esoteric sect of old believers, hidden inside the shell of a mainline Protestant denomination. Which of course is a lot like being a Catholic Anglican.
