It is not only the Anne Spiegels of this world who pay the bill. All families are affected, and even women who do not consider themselves feminists can no longer escape the social demands of this profoundly anti-family feminism.
Families are a wall; a bulwark against dictatorship, a bastion of liberty. The family is at odds with the ideology of the postmodernists. This is why they hate it so much and are attempting to destroy it.
If a new framework for freedom is to emerge in the West, it must be recognizable. The stories of anchored freedom must be told, and they must be disseminated with the same adamance in mass culture, whenever and wherever possible, as the Boomer myth of freedom.
In a display of steadfast national and religious unity, the inaugural ceremony brought together everyday, working Hungarians, principal political leaders, and Catholic, Orthodox, Calvinist, Evangelical Lutheran prelates.
Only by rediscovering a vision of the good life that reckons with the suffering inherent in human experience and conceives of individuals as social animals bound by duty to one another—Edmund Burke’s “partnership of the dead, the living and the unborn”—do we stand a chance of bending the rising generation’s egotism and make them want to grace their communities and nations with new human beings.
Judging by the 1942 film, the story of Bambi is a relatively simple and childish tale. True, it famously deals with Bambi’s loss of his mother, but in general the movie leaves viewers with the banal, sentimental, fuzzy feelings that has made Disney an entertainment juggernaut. But these are not the feelings Salten’s original novel produces, nor is the novel particularly intended for children. How, then, did Disney’s image of Bambi become the predominant one? And how does this story and its reception shed light on our current Western culture?
The idea of motherlessness in Shakespeare’s The Tempest and Huxley’s Brave New World may help us understand our own age, in which state encroachment and market forces work together for the abolition of motherhood.
“No adult group escapes the eye of Them Before Us. It is an organization that insists that all adults—single, married, gay, and straight—all sacrifice for children. No adult gets a pass. Every adult has to do the hard things, so that children’s rights are protected.”—Katy Faust
The new president arrived at Parliament accompanied by her husband and three children. Refuting the ‘codes’ of militant feminism, Novák highlighted her identity as a woman and mother as decisive assets in politics.
The patronymic is primarily a symbol of continuity and transmission. With this new law, the idea of transmission of a symbolic heritage, that of the name, leaves the realm of designation to become the object of a choice subject to personal convenience.
“We do not want a dehumanized country in which our lives are devoted to the merely material,” Isabel Díaz Ayuso said. “Spain and Europe suffer from a real demographic problem which, if unchecked, will cause other serious problems in the middle and long-term.”
Central banks are recognizing that their own sustained monetary expansion has now awoken the sleeping giant of inflation. The goal now is to avoid trapping us in the same protracted inflation period we experienced 40 years ago.
Growing capital formation and a rising standard of living are irrefutable evidence of how the Hungarian government is successfully putting its conservative values to work. With a distinctly conservative welfare state, Mr. Orbán has led his country out of a demographic slump. Marriage and birth rates are up noticeably, which is precisely what the Hungarian government was aiming for.
