Arguing over argument

There’s a new piece I wrote at Crisis Magazine about snark and willful stupidity on the Internet, and the importance of plugging imperturbably away.

More on subsidiarity

I have an additional piece on the topic up at Catholic World Report. The basic point is extra ecclesiam nulla subsidiaritas. You’re not going to get subsidiarity apart from an understanding of the world that doesn’t seem to exist in secular public thought today.

What is normal?

That’s the issue considered in my latest column at Catholic World Report. The big question today is whether the expression means much of anything.

Will the Church return to type?

That’s the original title of my latest piece at Crisis Magazine. It says that the dispute between progressive and traditionalist Catholics is a dispute over whether the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church has an essential nature.

Not quite, but I do have a new column up at Catholic World Report on Sex and the Public Order.

Lunacy doesn't last forever

For some reason people find my new piece at Crisis optimistic. I’d say rather that it refuses to be pessimistic: disaster is never absolute, it doesn’t last forever, and it may not go as far as feared, so don’t give up.

The Church and the experts

I have a new column up at Catholic World Report about the troubled relation between the Church and those who define reality in the secular world, and what to do about it.

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.

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.

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.

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?

I briefly sketch of what the change would mean and how it could come about in my latest piece at Catholic World Report.
