Flotsam & Jetsam 1/28

Ah, But It Is A Story – Doug Wilson, reading the Grammys like a book.

Everyone Catechizes – “… everyone catechizes their children. Everyone tells their children what matters most, either with their lives, or with their words, or with the songs they sing coming out of Wal-Mart.”

A Defense of Rash Vows – By G.K. Chesterton: “They have invented a phrase, a phrase that is a black and white contradiction in two words – ‘free-love’ – as if a lover ever had been, or ever could be, free. It is the nature of love to bind itself, and the institution of marriage merely paid the average man the compliment of taking him at his word.”

Fake Performers – Simultaneously neat and freaky.

The Hunt – An incredible film. Strictly for the older crowd, but a brilliant, haunting achievement and one of the finest foreign films I’ve seen. Prepare to be moved.

“The family… has long been the object of hate of ambitious intellectuals, for the family stands between the state, to be directed by intellectuals, and total power.” – Theodore Dalrymple, Spoilt Rotten: The Toxic Cult of Sentimentality
