Culture war: Who is the enemy? What is our weapon?

February 19th, 2018 by Bookslinger

Stumbled upon this via a link at Bruce Charlton’s blog.  The title is How to Win the Culture War, by Peter Kreeft.  He writes from a Catholic perspective.

The sections are: 1) we are at war, 2) who the enemy is, 3) the weapon/strategies to fight the enemy.  At times I need to be reminded of the second and third.  Kreeft’s explanations are the best I’ve read in a while.  He uses Catholic terminology, but the piece is also LDS in essence.  Or at least my mind translates it into things I’ve heard at General Conference.

I also recommend BC’s post “Screw-up or Conspiracy? A Fake Dichotomy.” (A comment contains the link to Kreeft.)  It explains a key to understanding how so many people are duped by the real enemy.

Just who is giving us SSM ?

August 28th, 2016 by Bookslinger

The same people, or socio-political faction, who gave us the sexual revolution.  And how did the sexual revolution work out?  What has been its net effect on society?

And why should we trust them this time around?

Obama meets definition of Satan’s henchman.

November 03rd, 2014 by Bookslinger

Money quote:
“Sometimes, someone, usually mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result. And that’s not a choice we want Americans to make.”
Thus, Barack Hussein Obama.

Definition of Satan’s henchmen from John C. Wright:
“The Progressives in their smirking self-righteous piety and grotesque self-imposed ignorance are henchmen of the devil. Some know it, most do not. They stand between a woman and her human nature, her happiness, her children, and they speak the selfsame lie. The source of your happiness is the barrier to happiness. Destroy the source of your happiness, toss happiness aside, and you will be happy.”
Mr Wright was agreeing with David Warren.

I recommend reading both Wright’s and Warren’s linked articles to get the full picture.

Awake in the Night Land

April 14th, 2014 by G.

The Last Redoubt

John C. Wright’s book Awake in the Night Land is out.

I can’t really express how good it is. This is a book that I will be rereading and thinking about for the rest of my life. It is a book that made my eyes shine when my wife walked into the room. It is touched with holiness. (more…)
