If you really want to talk pandemics, then let’s talk Julian of Norwich. She lived in religious seclusion, but she understood deeply that there are no guarantees in life—no safety other than in God. In this episode of “Young Heretics,” Spencer Klavan talks through the weird, intense, and powerful visions of Julian and what they say about God and womanhood.

    Thanks for this and explaining more about Julian of Norwich. I have heard about her but not read any of her writings. Finally it is so true that this barely qualifies as a pandemic. Certainly it is an individual tragedy for those who die and those who mourn them. Humanity has gone through so much worse before. My grandmother’s family lost 2 children and another left deaf after scarlet fever hit their community and that is just part of one family’s story.

    Feminism doesn’t turn women into men. It tries, of course, but without much success. Instead, it has the effect of amplifying the worst aspects of femininity and creating the mirror image of the “toxic masculinity” half-educated, affluent women love to gripe about. Instead of amazons, tomboys, and biker chicks, we end up with victimhood worship, pandemic theater, and the pink police state.
