Good news! The valuable publication Front Porch Republic has published my latest piece, "The Real Social Network," which starts with a funeral in rural Ireland and then goes somewhere else. Feel free to check it out.
Let’s say we've lost most of the self-reliant skills and classical education that our forbears possessed. Let's say we have replaced them with a culture of buying and discarding things we don't value, and staring at glowing screens. Let's say you want to try to rediscover an older way of life, believing we will need such things again.
And let’s say you have a daughter.
