Who cares about boys? Almost….nobody! Our culture focuses on feminist concerns, the wage gap myth, girls’ health, and so on. Boys and boyhood are simply not interesting or valuable enough for the elites to talk about.

Dr. Anthony Esolen had enough. So he wrote a fine book, Defending Boyhood, which lays out the problem, provides some historical context along with tons of examples from novels and movies. The need to support and defend boyhood is urgent and (if you have eyes to see) obvious.

 

In this episode you will learn

  • Why there is no perfect “golden age” where things were perfect but the principles and values of boyhood were much healthier
  • The effect of the failed Sexual Revolution on the world of boys
  • Why boys are in special need of rituals of self-discovery in ways girls are not
  • The connection between absent or abusive fathers and the homosexual impulse
  • How contraception disrupted the relationship between men and women, and hence the family, and how this affected our perception of boys (and children in general)
  • Why boys love to sing if the songs tell manly tales
  • How to survive in a culture bereft of institutions and clubs devoted to the care and growth of boys qua boys.

What? Another too-little-too-late book defending marriage? Dr. Scott Hahn thinks the battle has just begun for a resurgent reverence for marriage as its been defined for 3000+ years, and was raised to the dignity of a Sacrament by Jesus Christ.

Marriage as Sacrament is badly misunderstood today, which is part of the reason why so many people leave their spouses when the going gets tough. Hahn, professor of theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville, OH, and author of over 40 books, knows firsthand how tough the going can get. Share this very personal interview with one of the best known and respected Catholic thinkers and influencers in American Church history.

 

In this episode you will learn

  • The deeper meaning of “it is not good for the man to be alone” (Genesis 2:18)
  • Why the Church calls marriage the Sacrament of “Matrimony”
  • The connection between the 1930 Anglican decision to allow contraception and the current crisis of the definition of marriage
  • Why marriage is the cell of the entire body of the Church and of the broader society
  • How couples who stick together provide not just a solid foundation for their kids but a living homily to others
  • Why the Sacrament of Matrimony is impossible without the “third party” of Jesus Christ

Socrates said that the order of the city was the order of the soul writ large. That observation is all the more true today—and not a compliment to the modern soul or the modern city. Most people simply don’t advert to the quiet influence the surrounding architecture has on their psyche: the shape and scale of buildings, the order and proportion (or lack thereof). The father of modern Bauhaus architecture is the German Walter Gropius, a promiscuous cad who married a promiscuous shrew named Anna Mahler, wife of composer Gustav Mahler. Dr. E. Michael Jones, editor of Culture Wars magazine says that Gropius painted into his architectural vision a radically new kind of building and with it, a revolution in urban planning.

 

In this episode you will learn

  • The subtle (?) ways in which the architecture that surrounds us tells us who we are and what our life’s priorities ought to be
  • How Gropius’s rationalization of his own degeneracy got transmuted into buildings built purely for function, and ugly as sin besides
  • Why rebellion against Logos leads to disorder and chaos in the external design of things
  • What public housing Projects in Chicago, suburban Moscow, and industrial Poland have in common
  • Why classical architecture as nurtured by Catholic principles and sound philosophy can lead the way to beautify both home and church design

Mike Lindell had a dream. Actually, he’s had a series of dreams, which have all come true. The founder and CEO of MyPillow.com—chances are good you’ve seen one of his infomercials—never dreamed (pardon the pun) that his longtime crack addiction would be a thing of the past.

Nor that he would be a major financial backer of a hit movie that was predicted to bite the box office dust.

And yet, Unplanned starring Ashley Bratcher doubled its predicted opening weekend take and continues to touch hearts and minds, thanks in part to Lindell’s vision for cultural change surrounding abortion. He is also generous in using his large platform to the cause near and dear to him: helping addicts get clean. His whole story is preposterous, if you think about it.

 

In this episode you will learn

  • How this non-MBA small business owner and inventor escaped a life-threatening addiction to crack cocaine.
  • Why Lindell is “all in” for President Donald Trump and how he (Lindell) knew Trump was not only going to be elected president, but would far surpass anyone’s expectations.
  • Why he is using his business platform to help fellow suffering addicts.
  • How he learned that Abby Johnson’s story was a thing in the first place.
  • Anecdotes from the filming of Unplanned.
  • Just how bad the opioid addiction crisis is, and how Mike Lindell is part of the solution.

********************************************************

Have you noticed how few people are willing to oppose publically the transgender agenda, no matter how dangerous to young mind—not to mention to the suffering people who go through with the mutilation surgery?

Oh, many people will privately object, and tutt tutt their disapproval.

British journalist and writer Caroline Farrow knows all about the first option. The Catholic wife and mother of five young kids appeared on ITV’s  “Good Morning Britain” in September 2018, and used the Wrong Pronoun for the son of trans activist activist Susie Green, with whom Farrow was debating. The son was born Jack, a male, and subjected to the mutilation procedure on his 16th birthday in that bastion of high tech surgery, Thailand, and now goes by Jackie. Soon after, she described the situation as child abuse and the procedure in correct medical terminology on Twitter.

That’s why the Surrey Police called her recently with concerrrrrrrrrns.

She was “invited” to have a “voluntary” meeting with law enforcement after Ms. Green sicced them on her, scouring the internet for No Good Bad Things she may have said.  All for using words on television and Twitter felt to be hurtful and offensive.

Monty Python, meet George Orwell. Caroline Farrow’s story is of a piece with my first interview with Dr. Jordan Peterson back in February, 2017, on compelled speech. In some ways, Peterson is the theory, Farrow the practice.

If you do an online search, the MSM routinely slaps together unflattering photos of the attractive Mrs. Farrow, label her a “devout Catholic” (in the tone of racists when they say “colored woman”), and invariably describe her comments as “transphobic.” Her story is, inter alia, an invitation for Catholics and other men of good will to find their courage and stand up to the new onslaught against free speech and religious freedom.
