Which path might conservatism take? Tolkien or Junger?
Religious Freedom and Red Herrings
The Church is not a grocery store. Our paradigms are all wrong.
Truth vs. Conscience: Against Alan Jacobs’ Defense of A Hidden Life
“A dogma is... an instrument of freedom and not of restriction. It preserves mystery for the human mind.”
The (Ir)religion of Man 2020
The city of God is replaced by the Man’s city of harmony. The conclusion of this story is not unexpected – this revolution ends in failure.
