The victory this week of Italy’s Giorgia Meloni fits into this story as well. Her words—and perhaps, in the future, by the grace of God, her party’s actions—are nothing less than a full-throated disavowal of the West’s Chronos Complex.
There are inordinately excitable Catholics who believe that only a Catholic sovereign is owed their loyalty and devotion. I remind them of the commandment of St. Peter: “Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the Emperor.”
The Golden Bull of 1222 is a unique charter, as it was issued as a result of popular movements of the common nobility to defend and restore supposedly old customs and liberties, in the face of activities of the king and barons they perceived as harmful.
The term ‘goblin mode’ has recently entered Internet-parlance, describing an apparently quarantine-inspired attitude of slovenliness and near-abject embrace of circadian-pattern irregularity, novelty-addicted internet scrolling, and abnegation of hygiene, countering Instagram-curated photography with a defeated, devil-may-care nihilism.
Serbia’s pro-life groups recently celebrated a landmark victory with the cancellation of the ‘Europride March,’ scheduled for September 17th. Following organized protests, in which throngs of people gathered several times on the streets of Belgrade, Serbian president, Aleksandar Vučić, was forced to cancel the notoriously sensualist parade. However, exhibitions, film screenings, and a four-day international […]
There are other domains of human life that I believe are best viewed as commons, as emergent, critical societal assets prone to careless destruction by unsustainable use, less tangible than pasture land, but in many ways, much more important in our daily lives.
One way to limit how much insanity one absorbs is to simply limit our exposure. But this is merely a stopgap. One needs interior fortification to navigate the maze of madness, and this fortification can and should range from the silly to the sublime.
In the current climate, Sinn Fein’s brand of neo-Marxist secularism, abetted by deceitful propaganda of the kind at which Communists excel, has been able to hoodwink a great many Irish voters into supporting their neo-Marxist policies.
The policies that have provoked these protests differ, but there is a common conviction driving the backlash: the elites imposing these agendas do not and will not suffer the consequences of their own policies.
Placing one’s social role ahead of one’s personal preferences is certainly a sacrifice, but the assumption by some that such a sacrifice must make it impossible to live authentically or happily is far from being true.
Perhaps people have bought into the various scarcity programs of recent years—the scarcity of social contacts during the pandemic, scarcity of energy, scarcity of food—because it makes them feel alive again.
This essay may not be a plug-and-play survival guide to inflation, but it should help to explain where you can go and what information you can find, in order to educate yourself on inflation, specifically energy costs.
If these four companies—WeWork, Uber, Airbnb, and DoorDash—were representative of what American capitalism had to offer, there would be reasons for grave concern about the future of our economic system.
Is there a proper way to differentiate between true refugees and opportunists? It is a hard question to answer. But one thing is sure: it is never a loss when the Church gets actively involved in a refugee’s life. While the system can be cheated, God cannot.
It is very difficult to argue for the Burkean Contract. If one sees oneself as a morally isolated, radical individual for whom history means nothing and for whom nothing is owed to the future, no amount of disputation will let in the light.
In the arena of the culture war, ideas become political brands, stitched into the terrible body of the news cycle, until they share in that sickly bloodstream. Instead of building civic participation, they get their oxygen from media attention.
Beneath the tales of Almanzor’s campaigns is an intriguing subtext which seems to subvert preconceived modern Muslim and Christian notions of what medieval warfare between the two great religions was actually like in Al-Andalus.
The Bible recommends that kings be anointed after the conquest of their realm. Institutions are not to be founded in the throes of a crisis, which would result in their legitimising themselves through that crisis and so perpetuating it.
