Hybrid Home Schools and Civil Society

By |2020-07-28T11:28:57-05:00July 31st, 2020|Categories: Civil Society, Classical Education, Community, Education, Family, Liberal Learning|

As states and localities battle over issues from how or even whether to re-open schools, all the way to defining the circumstances under which small children will be required to wear masks, a devolution of decision-making is certainly welcome. Hybrid homeschools can provide many more families with a way to both get past virus-related [...]

The Heroism of Civilization

By |2020-07-04T01:22:27-05:00July 4th, 2020|Categories: Civilization, David Deavel, Family, Heroism, Marriage, Senior Contributors|

What we need in American society are more imaginative resources for thinking about marriage and the great slog of parenthood. We need stories, plays, movies, and shows about the sort of heroism that requires long-haul fortitude and not just courage in the moment. A long-held but somewhat flexible fantasy I have engaged in periodically [...]

Hungary Resists the Globalist Marxist Alliance

By |2020-06-28T19:55:47-05:00June 28th, 2020|Categories: Europe, Family, Joseph Pearce, Politics, Senior Contributors|

As the globalist agenda, pursued by an unholy alliance of super-rich plutocrats and their Marxist dupes, continues to unravel, it is likely that Hungary and its healthy response to cultural suicide might be destined to have the last laugh. Amid the madness and hysteria besieging the United States and many countries in western Europe, [...]

Father’s Day Proclamation

By |2020-06-23T14:15:56-05:00June 20th, 2020|Categories: Family, Ronald Reagan|

Each year the third Sunday in June is designated as Father’s Day, a day on which we honor our Nation’s fathers for everything they do for their families and for America. Today fatherhood is sometimes drily described as a craft or an occupation, something which competes with career or outside pursuits for time and [...]

Our Real Existential Crisis: Extinction

By |2020-01-21T10:26:51-06:00January 19th, 2020|Categories: Civilization, Culture, Family, Modernity, Pat Buchanan, Western Civilization|

For many First World countries, the most compelling concerns do not involve climate change but population decline. The tribes of Europe, the peoples of almost every country of the Old Continent, are visibly aging, shrinking, and dying. If birth rates do not rise we are talking here about what historians, a century hence, will [...]

Return of the Strong Gods

R.R. Reno in “Return of the Strong Gods” argues that we need a return to the pillars that represent classic human values: the home, the country, and the religion. He calls for true patriotism rather than nationalism, marriage and family instead of a sexual free-for-all, and historic Christianity instead of do-it-yourself “spirituality.” Return of [...]

“Cor Ad Cor Loquitur”

GRANDMOTHER AND GRANDSON A MOMENT TOGETHER They shared a language all their own, unspoken. He, twenty-two years young, and never a word: His world, a silence, ever still, unbroken. Yet she, ninety-four, oh, she had always heard. […]

Faith, Family, and the Future of Europe

By |2019-05-12T00:09:57-05:00May 11th, 2019|Categories: Europe, Faith, Family, Joseph Pearce, Senior Contributors, Western Civilization|

Europe has a suicidal tendency to ignore the problem underlying its decay: a lack of faith and families. But perhaps, in light of recent legislation in Poland and Hungary rooted in faith and family and the future, perhaps we may be seeing the sun rising in Europe’s East, even as we see it setting [...]

The Real Digital Divide

By |2019-09-12T13:51:48-05:00April 16th, 2019|Categories: Civil Society, Community, Culture, Family|

There was a time, decades ago when the world was divided between those who were online and offline. Rich people could afford the shiny new gadgets that connected them with everyone. Poor people were left in an analog wasteland on the other side of the digital divide. Social justice warriors of the time demanded [...]
