When we hear so many stories about people who are isolated, lonely, abandoned and lost, I wonder at the same time how other folks somehow freed themselves from that life. Were they guided by a teacher, family member, friend or colleague who saw they were in trouble and helped them make better choices? Then I […]

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-49145664 I run into this over and over….now the “Duchess of Sussex” has chosen a world based gang of “activists” (that’s always positive, too) for featuring in a Vogue magazine issue (somehow AOC got left out). The main virtue to belong is to be shaking things up and some of what they are doing is […]

When Leftist Worlds Collide

 

In a rapidly declining Western civilization gone mad with progressive ideology, one of the few pleasures available for people with traditional values is watching one fringe element of the left trash another fringe element of the left. It doesn’t necessarily do much to slow down the civilizational destruction, but it provides sporadic moments of intense pleasure.

One case in point: Leonardo DiCaprio. Did you know that the world-famous actor and climate activist is guilty of promoting white supremacy? Neither did most people, but after all, he is white, rich and powerful, so it just stands to reason, right?

Ironically, my copy of Bret Baier’s new book, Three Days in Moscow, just arrived in the mail on the eve of the Kim Summit with President Trump. The introduction quotes part of a Reagan speech as follows: ‘Freedom is the right to question and change the established way of doing things. It is the right […]

Here is a headline that epitomizes the times in which we are living: “The Ninth Circuit Just Allowed Children To Sue Trump Over Global Warming.” When you see a headline like that, all you can do is shake your head in exasperation and scream out into the ether, “Of course it did!” Because it’s the […]

Note: @garyrobbins issued a challenge to match his upgrade of level on Ricochet. While I could not upgrade to meet his challenge, I proposed to meet his challenge in another way. I would provide uplifting spiritual fodder in our mutual Unity tradition to give him a reason to see Ricochet as a place of spiritual, […]

This year has been a cacophony of agitated politics. Most of us agree that we’ve never seen anything like it. It’s the kind of change, chaotic and angry, that some of us might thrive in. I can’t speak for you, but I feel pretty tired and distracted, wishing it were all over. I even put […]

[NOT FOR THE MAIN FEED] Impermanence is built into our lives, although we often fight it with all our being. Yet, change is inevitable. Sometimes we handle change with grace, other times we flounder in the depths of it. I used to teach workshops about change, and I realized this morning that I’d benefit from […]

Each Sunday, after early mass, I make my way over to the Market Square Starbucks where I sit for a quite hour with my Sunday paper. Last Sunday, I had PHCheese’s Pittsburgh Elegy on my mind. More

Most people understand that change, as such, is not a value. It’s a phenomenon, and it’s happening everywhere all the time whether we like it or not. More

That change can be good or bad was once so well understood as to be axiomatic. Previous generations, naturally, were no strangers to change. But the notion that change is good in and of itself is an entirely new idea. It’s also a very lucrative one. I once attended a workshop for speakers which confirmed […]

Freezing Time, Moving Forward… — Barkha Herman

 

The left wants to freeze time.

The world population needs to be limited to an arbitrary number of some recent year. The air needs to be as clean as the most famous environmentalist’s memory renders. Trade needs to be at the level of the trendiest primitive society du jour. Food needs to be prepared the way someone remembers it.
