The Diseases of Modern Life as seen through the Secular Confessional
I understand.Some writers are interesting enough that it's worth checking in every day (several times) just to see if something comes up.I hope the Trifkovic/Yugoslavia arc is finished. Not that I am tired of it, but I believe your posts are well argued and points well taken. In my spiritual corner (Orthodox converts) there are some who are prone to take the pro-Serb side of things. What I wonder now is if the now-deceased Patriarch Pavle had anything to do with covering up for Serbian atrocities or if he really is the holy man Serbs say he is.
I had wondered if everything was alright. Good to know you're not dead or otherwise incapacitated. For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure all bloggers hit the writing wall every now and then. It's no big deal, but don't let it get you down.
@IngemarI hope to write a bit more about Yugoslavia, but not much more about Trifkovic. I wrote about Trifkovic not because of the Croat/Serb conflict, rather, his inclusion in the conservosphere is a prime example of some of the rot in conservative thought.I do want to write about Yugoslavia though, because I feel it was a wonderful example of left wing thought and its pathologies writ large.As for the Orthodox Serb connection, it is many ways similar to the Catholic Croat one. (Especially during WW2). For many people religion is more a marker of which side they are on(even for the religious) more than a philosophy by which they live by.@SimonThanks.
I hope the Trifkovic/Yugoslavia arc is finished.Amen.For many people religion is more a marker of which side they are on(even for the religious) more than a philosophy by which they live by.Now this arc is more SP style!
>>For many people religion is more a marker of which side they are on(even for the religious) more than a philosophy by which they live by.That reminds me of an Irish joke. A man in Ulster was asked by a suspicious local "Are you Catholic or Protestant?"He replied "I'm an atheist.""Catholic atheist or Protestant atheist?"
