Man is a bubble, and all the world is a storm. He kept it on a shelf in our family den, where for years when I was a kid it roared down at us -- unappeasably furious or so I always thought at being trapped up there on its high perch, with no company except some painted beer mugs and a set of purple glass swizzle sticks.
One thing that you seem to discount — in that you rarely discuss it — is the Reaction. And that gives me both hope and fear. Society tends to move in cycles — the pagan bachanalia giving way to Christianity… The moral decadence of the 18th century transforming into the Victorian era…the moral depravity of the Czarist elite falling to the puritanism of the Bolsheviks, etc.
The Progressive Leftists — the Acolytes of Liquid Modernity — are a tiny proportion of the population. Yes, like Sadduccees and Jansenists they wield power out of all proportion to their numbers.

Please make it accessible to those of us who eschew FaceBook. But now the conservatives too see these men, from Pope Francis on down as increasingly untrustworthy and seriously compromised.

As the church is subordinate to Christ, so wives should be subordinate to their husbands in everything. Under the First Principle Theory, a woman that fails to be subordinated in everything is violating a First Principle. Or should the woman be compelled?
For centuries, female subordination was considered a First Principle, one that was understood authorized the husband to force the wive to comply in all aspects. But sometime within the last few centuries decades? Was this a recognition that sometimes, the application of First Principles result in evil ends?
Or did First Principles metaphysicists conclude that, since First Principles cannot result in evil ends, female subjugation was never a First Principle, and people were, for centuries, just a bit confused about the matter? There are many more examples of perceived First Principles being ruthlessly applied:Today, on the first day of the new decade of 'x' years, I am going to tell you why that is.
I am hereby triggering the national dialog on what the foremost challenge for the United States will be in this decade, which is the ultimate root cause of most of the other problems we appear to be struggling with.
