ANTHONY ESOLEN’S “OUT OF ASHES” a call to Restore Culture, Faith and Sanity

Out of the Ashes: Anthony Esolen’s Clarion Call to Restore Culture, Faith, and Sanity

article sent by Mark Waldeland:

“Anthony Esolen’s new book offers a bracing diagnosis and prescription for contemporary American culture.

Anthony Esolen is the contemporary incarnation of GK Chesterton. The simple and beautiful prose, the acute diagnostic precision, the commonsense appeal to and on behalf of everyday things, the recipe for renewal—all these things Esolen shares with Chesterton, the preeminent cultural physician of the early twentieth century. Like Chesterton, Esolen bluntly identifies our problems. And like him, Esolen’s solution centers on God and faith, learning and virtue, and a robust sense of human nature.

“I shall decry the decay of civilization,” Esolen announces at the outset of his newest book, Out of the Ashes: Rebuilding American Culture. And decry he most certainly does. His diagnosis of American culture is almost shocking in its candor—“pungent,” as the book’s dust jacket describes Esolen—but it is all the more sound for that.

The form of Esolen’s criticism fits its content. Chapter One, subtitled “The Restoration of Truth-Telling,” inaugurates a book-length, withering critique of the web of lies pulsating at the heart of American culture. This web is spun and maintained by the “mass” institutions: media, business, entertainment, and government. The most impressive obstacle to restoration of culture is the persistent insistence that unreality is real: that boys can be girls, that men and women are the same, that the unborn child is not a person, that divorce is okay for ourselves and the kids, that literature (especially poetry) and culture are fungible subjects of inquiry, and so on. And we aren’t simply mistaken about such things, according to Esolen. “Children lie to hide the bad things they have done,” he says. “So does everyone else.”

The necessary remedy for such cant and for the political paradigms and correctness that bolster it is a total rejection of their terms and conditions—a rejection that Esolen boldly models. We must learn anew to read and speak, to sing and work and dance and pray, and to build and cherish beautiful things. If Esolen’s envisaged culture strikes us as quaint, as something only even desirable before the Industrial Revolution or the invention of the television, so much the worse for us. “If tradition is the handing on of cultural and artisanal knowledge, and if we have taught ourselves in our smugness that we can dispense with it, then we will become cultural and artisanal incompetents.” This prophecy embraces the skeptic along with the smug. . . .”

Democrat’s Feminism, Black Lives Matter, Open Borders = Fascism

THE “GOOD OLD DAYS” OF SOVIET FASCISM OF THE LATE TWENTIETH CENTURY REMIND ME OF LIVING WITH TODAY’S FAKE NEWS OF CNN,  MSNBC, THE NEW YORK TIMES AND WASHINGTON POST…. TODAY’S DEMOCRAT PARTY!!!

There was a time when I spoke Russian quite fluently with an old fashioned Russian aristocrat accent.  For years I subscribed to Pravda and Izvestia among other such Soviet matters.

Of my  700 quarter credits of life university  study  I have a graduate degree in Soviet Studies.

On two occasions, the summer of 1966 and the autumn of 1990, I dwelt and traveled in this dictatorship of dictatorships, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic.   Relative to the Stalinist era of intrigue, terror, and slaughter, that first visit to  Soviet dictatorship was one amidst  intrigue and some terror, but usually  without much slaughter, but filled with poverty.   I was very careful with my steps and visits, but overall, I felt safe.

The Soviets, as usual,  were in deep financial trouble and had made an agreement, the National Defense Education Act, NDEA, during the Eisenhower administration to allow American teachers of Russian  with  graduate degrees  to travel  but with Soviet “guidance” from city to city,  kolhoz to kolhoz.    Three of us in this group of twenty were fluent in the language and were able to weave in and out of official observation.  Yet at the end of this extraordinary life experience for an American, when our plane exiting the USSR landed in Helsinki, Finland, automatically, we, the moment we landed and descended the Soviet plane,   without any guidance or expectation, all kissed the ground of this part of the free world, the bearing of this USSR  police state was that profound.

I was one of the interpreters for a Twin City religious group, on visit, October, 1990,  a Christian group which had collected funds to aid the victims of the atomic mishap at Chernobyl in 1986.   Revolution was in the air.  I had noticed a motor pool area loaded with at least a hundred of tanks less than a mile from our hotel upon our arrival   in Kiev.   Later in the week of our visit,  an organized rebellion broke out one morning under the screech  of thousands of whistles,  while I was shaving at the bathroom sink in my room on the seventeenth  floor of a newly Soviet- built hotel.   The only  elevator designed to reach the seventeenth floor, was out of order the entire week of our stay in the city.    Over  ten thousand people peacefully but noisily blew  whistles  while  passing by  the hotel  to surround local government buildings about a mile away.

Not a tank arrived.

Yet, every evening for the next six days when I left for home, thousands gathered at the square adjacent to our hotel from dusk throughout the night in quietude of mourning while countless thousands, mostly women,  took turns showing pictures of  grandfathers, fathers, brothers, and sons who had been taken from life, made to disappear by the Communist Party over the past thirty years, most simply providing the names, the relationships, and the dates of the disappearances of their family’s lost loved ones.

That is more than twenty five years ago.  Glasnost was in the air.   In a few years Kiev would  become the capital of the Ukraine.  Soviet fascists weren’t going away, but were forced to reduce the Soviet empire.  More recently the dictatorship has regained strength under the fascism of Vladimir Putin from  the Soviet  secret police empire.

Today, Sunday, February 26, 2017, I spent the day watching FAKE NEWS on cable’s MSNBC and CNN.   I have been worried about  the collapse of things  democratic in our  present Democrat Party, being made “Soviet” foreign under the leadership of Charles Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders,  Tom Perez,  and Islamic religious fascist, Keith Ellison, and financed by Communist George Soros and billionaires in communications and finance…..and the murders and riots by  Black Lives Matter,  by illegal immigrants, by drug masters and mistresses, and the millions of illegal Latinos and Latinas made comfortable by leftist fascists running sanctuary cities throughout America’s Democrat Party-controlled metropolitan areas, and the brainless  social science  graduates from Harvard and Yale throughout  the country  Northwestern to UCLA.

CNN and MSNBC are not alone among FAKE NEWS folks…..NBC, ABC, PBS, CBS, the New York Times, Boston Globe, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Mpls  Strib….and countless others are members of the same Leftist print.  FAKE NEWS IS SOLD THROUGHOUT THESE CENTERS OF  today’s fascistic leftism.

President Donald J. Trump tweets to the  public…… Cable Fox not too far behind the Leftist Cable propaganda throng complains that President Trump  tweets.   Chris Wallace’s  Cable Fox is among the established Left is paid very well for his efforts.   Fox advertises balance and fairness to sell more ‘news’.

Our Donald has, besides his tweet freedom, and our Dennis Prager show on radio,  ONLY ONE NATIONAL  TELEVISION CHANNEL, a cable one,  to rely on to  share  similar traditional freedom-loving American brotherhood and sisterhood beliefs in thought and deed;  BUSINESS FOX starring  Stuart Varney  in the morning during week days.

How lucky we Americans, immigrants and all  who love democratic freedoms, truth, and honesty  are, that  Donald J. Trump, the energetic who loves his country,  is leader of “Making America Great Again”!

Cult of Intellectual Laziness

A few examples of intellectual laziness

By  Joseph Archer  at  American Thinker:

“My wife parroted the comment that secondhand smoke is worse for you than firsthand smoke.  I was struck by the obvious insanity of the statement – and more importantly, the intellectual laziness of subscribing to it.  Now, it is not entirely impossible that 100% of a toxin is less harmful than 5% of a toxin – perhaps air dilution multiplies the toxicity – but to readily accept that assertion is simply intellectual laziness.  It would take some really conclusive evidence to believe such a claim, and that evidence does not exist.

Another good example of intellectual laziness is the global warming hypothesis.  If all the molecules in the atmosphere were lined up between N.Y. and L.A., with CO2 at the front of the line, you would run out of CO2 before your plane got off the runway.  It is called a trace gas because 4 parts in 10,000 is a pretty small fraction.  For CO2 to have the impact claimed, it would have to qualify as a supernatural atom.  Add to that the facts that CO2 represents only maybe 1% of the global heat retention caused by water and that anthropogenic CO2 is a small fraction of global CO2 production, and it is clear that the anthropogenic CO2 “hypothesis” is simply farcical.

Then there is the issue of Islam. Any belief system that asserts that it is necessary to chop a woman’s head off if she goes to the market without her husband is not a legitimate philosophy; it is abject insanity.  And for so many to tell themselves that it is valid because it is a “religion” is one of the most offensive examples of intellectual laziness.  Slavery has been around since time immemorial, and it never has been and never will be part of a legitimate philosophy.

And of course there is the immigration issue.  Every nation on Earth has immigration limits.  When 10% of your population is illegal, it is not immigration; it is invasion.  When you allow yourself to conflate reasonable immigration control with racism, you are being intellectually lazy.  And when you slander with wails of racism those who aren’t intellectually lazy, who admit that a country, no matter how wealthy, can’t absorb unlimited numbers of the desperately poor without inflicting hardship on the native population, you are guilty of not only intellectual laziness, but also character assassination.”     Please read on:
