I'll write more soon, but for the moment I wanted to thank Rod Dreher, author of "Crunchy Cons" and "The Benedict Option," for spending the afternoon with me this past weekend. Rod gave an inspiring and heartfelt talk at the University Church on Stephen's Green, Dublin, and was kind enough to mention me.
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.
