The politics of nostalgia and more

  • From Modestinus: The politics of nostalgia. A long lecture that as far as I can tell is a Catholic critique of the modern versions of liberty and democracy.
  • From Bob Wallace: How can you tell if machines are being used for good or bad purposes?
  • Pastor H.R. Curtis: As Theodore Darlrymple's thesis in his worldview-shifting book, "Life at the Bottom," has it: the rich and powerful can manage to live outside of traditional morality and gender roles because money is a great insulator. But the New Morality and the New Family and the Feminist Ideal don't work so well in the real world. Which is what we should expect: disregarding the Word of God and the Order set down therein....well, one simply should not expect that to work.
