The infrastructure that has been built out in recent years has mostly served the tech giants in Silicon Valley. It has connected the enclaves of the superrich and facilitated their travel.
A Journal of Slave and Post-Slave Studies
California is leading the country in building new lanes for high-occupancy vehicles and those willing to pay a toll for reduced travel time. Even the highways can be made to resemble gated communities. Kyle Smith checks out The Rise of Jordan Peterson and finds the documentary about the accidental movement leader pretty fair. At times this gentle soul seems like an unlikely candidate to be whipping up opposing armies.

He might have preferred to remain focused on his academic work on belief systems, myths, and archetypes. But like many others on the right, Peterson is ultimately motivated by an inability to let bunkum prevail unchallenged. A daughter gives him a psychological test in which Peterson is asked to rate himself in various categories. From the beginning of his review :. James Prosek b. Whenever I see an Audubon bird, I think of close-ups of movie stars. Prosek is a modern man. He makes documentaries, writes, teaches, and promotes conservation initiatives.
A few years ago, he retraced the first book on fishing, The Compleat Angler , written by Issak Walton in His documentary on Walton is unusually good. Sheila Hicks is a textile sculptor. Henri Broyard is a young African-American painter. I planned to write about Prosek this month, mostly because he defies boundaries and thinks about art and science.
Then, Harold Bloom died last week. Prosek and I were Bloom students at Yale, though of different generations. Bloom taught me about Shelley, Southey, Byron, and Wordsworth. What did he mean? Jack Butler is gnawed at by the persistence of the superstitious and its kin, and explores why.
The Vatican as a World Power
From the essay :. These books, published in and , became iconic horror films whose 50th and 45th anniversaries, respectively, came last year. The books have several superficial similarities: main characters who are actors, deaths by falling that set their plots in motion, dream sequences, fictional books-within-books about devil worship, rearrangements of words as key plot points, and a reliance on the agnosticism and skepticism of main characters for evil to succeed.
They also mix in with their supernatural horror a heavy helping of contemporary anxieties. Taken together, they suggest a frightening answer to the question of why the supernatural seems to cling bitterly to the supposedly rationalist present. But beneath this lurid surface, much of the contemporary anxiety of the s creeps.
Rosemary, though trying to live happily in New York City with her striving actor husband Guy, does not belong there. Her fellow apartment residents, whom she comes to suspect are devil-worshipers, have expertly manipulated her social circle so that she is essentially alone in confronting them. All these phenomena are amplified by conspiracy and dramatic effect, but draw from real-world urban dislocations.
We here touch on the idea of reparations for the sin of gluttony — per Dante and his Purgatorio , it is the vice handled in the Sixth Level in that un-Heavenly place. This lecture might be a bit too high-handed, abusive, and counter-productive. But there is a fact: There are a gazillion NRO readers who camp out on the site, day in and out and all the live-long, who stuff their brains and engorge their intellects courtesy of the Endless Feast we publish.
We serve, we bus the trays, we wash the dishes. Of course, as every good conservative knows: There is no such thing as a free meal. All that wisdom you are consuming? Someone is paying for it.

If not you, then it really is about time you ponied up, especially if you never have. OK, Nervy Me is telling you that, but Nervy Me is only repeating what your conscience is telling you, although maybe you cannot hear it from all the mandible mastication you are enjoying. So they have donated, cash that is cold and hard, like that Dove Bar you just inhaled, when we have appealed. Which we are doing right now with our Fall Webathon.
Where to read it, to be persuaded as promised? Right here. Where to donate if only to ease your conscience? At The Catholic Thing , Michael Pakaluk reflects on the writings of newly canonized John Henry Newman and the idea that we have lost the sense of what the true purpose of a university is. From the piece. A university, he says, as its name implies, is a place of universal learning.
Therefore, an institution that failed to teach about God, the central reality, the origin and end of everything else, whatever its other merits, simply could not be called a university. It would be a sham university, like a dodgy place that on principle excluded chemistry or physics.
With devastating logic, Newman then traces out the disorders that must afflict an academic community that has plucked out its very heart. He also describes a university as a place where the distinctive beauty of the intellect is imparted, just for its own sake:. There is a physical beauty and a moral: there is a beauty of person, there is a beauty of our moral being, which is natural virtue; and in like manner there is a beauty, there is a perfection, of the intellect.
The artist puts before him beauty of feature and form; the poet, beauty of mind; the preacher, the beauty of grace: then intellect too, I repeat, has its beauty, and it has those who aim at it. To open the mind, to correct it, to refine it, to enable it to know, and to digest, master, rule, and use its knowledge, to give it power over its own faculties, application, flexibility, method, critical exactness, sagacity, resource, address, eloquent expression, is an object as intelligible.
This too is an audacious idea. If you are thinking about a university in terms of grades, programs, and majors , he is saying, and not so to speak the intellectual personalities you are forming, then you are missing the mark entirely. More than a year later, the 6th Circuit ordered her to reconsider a preliminary injunction. Mahoney expounds on the 30th anniversary of the collapse of European Communism. Human nature can never be fundamentally changed, all three would agree. Solzhenitsyn always insisted that there could be a despotism in the name of the soul just as an inordinate attention to material concerns could distort human freedom and well-being.
He was a partisan of mesure or moderation, an equitable balancing of material and spiritual concerns. This is, of course, faithful to the best classical and Christian wisdom. And it has nothing to do with religious fanaticism. From the story :. He alleges that the corporation tried to prevent him discussing a historical Sikh religious figure who stood up to Muslim oppression — in case it caused offence to Muslims, despite a lack of complaints.
There were, however, no complaints about the segment reported to OFCOM, the government approved broadcasting watchdog.

Smith, who argue that the time has come for a paradigm shift. From their paper :. These include the impacts of programs based on the smallholder paradigm on productivity and their substantial limitations as mechanisms for fostering region- and countrywide economic growth and development. For smallholder farms, market participation and adoption of commercial inputs and technology are difficult because of inadequate scale and size.
