Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Titus Digest

 

Hello, Ricochet! Here are the latest essays I wrote on politics and culture, trying to explain the drama of our times. First and most furious–over at American Mind, I’m speaking up for the young men our liberal elites and shrieking woke mobs want to destroy, and whom we will need for a new generation of conservatism, one less deluded about the drama we’re facing. I also wrote about the NYT threatening to doxx a popular blogger, and explained the shifts in Progress. I also wrote for the Spectator US about the defund the police madness, and what it really means–pharmacology and therapy replacing justice. On the politics meets culture side, I wrote for Arc Digital on Alan Moore and Hayao Miyazaki on the madness engulfing liberals, fear of fascism and the eco-apocalypse.

On the cultural side, I wrote for Law & Liberty about Yellowstone, the wonderful, tragic Kevin Costner western on the Paramount Channel, which just started its third season. (First two are available on Amazon Prime as well as through Comcast/NBC…) Also, I wrote about Mr. Jones, the daring truthtelling film about corrupt liberals and the horrors Stalin perpetrated against the Ukrainians, the murder by starvation of millions. And I wrote about Inception, too, on its 10th an., and about Nolan’s cinematic humanism. Moving from film to books–I reminded Americans of the only remarkable Fourth of July novel I know, Walker Percy’s Love in The Ruins.

    When you mentioned Love in the Ruins I immediately thought of its unforgettable opening sentence which you specifically mentioned in your review. I think it’s been 20 years since I read it. Percy’s last novel, The Thanatos Syndrome, is a sequel to it and revisits the same protagonist I seem to recall, and many of the same themes.

    Yes, indeed. Thanatos is not quite up to the standard, but it’s got the prescient themes of pharmacological tyranny. As well as elite pedophilia…

    It’s also when the protagonist, Tom More, becomes political–decides to act, not just look at things & shake his head.
