Where is all this leading?

My latest at Catholic World Report suggests that secular liberalism won’t have the staying power effectually to suppress Catholicism.

The darkness gathers

I have another piece on the Windsor decision, this one at Crisis Magazine. It deals with the increasing radicalism, mindlessness, and intolerance of mainstream progressive thought.

Out of the antiworld

Here’s an essay from the current issue of Modern Age that’s been posted at the Intercollegiate Review website. It gives an architectonic account of all possible political positions in present-day America that explains the necessity and awkward status of social conservatism. The piece started out as a lecture I gave a couple of years ago at a Catholic conference and then shortened and made a bit less papist to fit into an officially non-Catholic publication.

Is inclusiveness evil?

That’s the title given to a a piece I wrote for Intercollegiate Review. It basically says that the Windsor case (invalidating the federal definition of marriage as natural marriage) means everyone should read my new book Against Inclusiveness, and includes a thumbnail sketch of the book’s argument and how it applies to churches.

Religion, liberalism, and worldly success

My latest column is now up at Catholic World Report. Basically it presents a standard cyclical view of one aspect of history: a society with a good religion will become successful, which makes the religion lose its hold, which means the society will stop being successful.

The radical meaning of "gay marriage"

That’s the title of my most recent piece at Crisis Magazine. It discusses recent developments in connection with the trend toward a single universal regime of contract and regulation in which no point has privileged independence.

Against Inclusiveness

I’ve got a new book out, Against Inclusiveness: How the Diversity Regime is Flattening America and the West and What to Do About It. It develops some of the arguments from The Tyranny of Liberalism and applies them in a more focused way to debunk our supreme moral principle, or what now seems to count as such. Since it’s published by a Catholic press I could get more specific about the principles for keeping the various aspects of human relations in balance other than attempting to suppress one or another of them because it might cause trouble.

The Church as Archimedes' fulcrum

Here’s another piece at Crisis, this one about the necessity of the Church as an independent institution in an age of Gleichschaltung.

Why not a Catholic society instead of a liberal theocracy?

Should lesbian priests be allowed to marry each other?

I have a snappily-written piece up at Crisis Magazine that discusses “gay marriage,” “woman priests,” and (best of all) the New World Order.
