Talkin’ Bout a (Counter) Revolution

 

With warm gratitude to Bellator Dei for the graphic.

 

Recently, I indicated new directions for this site that will unfold over the new year.

My meditations over this Christmas and on the state of the world have prompted these.

But I still need to meditate more as to how best to take this new track.

Still, a certain hint can be given.

And for anyone who would like such a hint, it can be found on a new page (with text) that I have added to both our US and UK Amazon stores.

The page with a small text can be found at the US site here.

Otherwise you can read it at the UK site here.

It is not only the text itself that provides the hint, but the mixture of authors …

For here are authors who understand the history of secularism and revolution. They are not duped by the notion that secularism developed naturally, freely, democratically. For they see how often secularism was imposed either by violent revolution or by more stealthy, insidious and devious means. They therefore understand the need to counter the effects of the secular revolution, the need, that is, for Counter-Revolution.

I would like to say again that anything at all purchased through Amazon – either through the stores or the Amazon links to the right will help support a work that is trying to unfold through this site. (And of course it will also support these authors.)

Hopefully, there will be more about this new direction in a few days.

    Fine selection indeed. If you lend me some voice, I’d add Chesterton’s What’s wrong with the World and Guenon’s Crisis of the modern world.

      Senkosmos, it is very good to have your voice here, a voice that has moved and impressed me elsewhere.

      You are too kind I think to my very quickly thrown together selection. A larger store is in construction (as indicated above) …

      As to Guenon and Chesterton, I am moving in the direction of both – via Borella and Belloc.

      I am borrowing Borella’s book on Geunon at last – and Belloc was clearly key to Chesterton.

      May I say that I find myself particularly hoping you will see my latest entry: On Hilaire Belloc: Fumbling in the Footsteps of a Giant.

      This particular entry says a lot about the direction this website will be taking and I think it may be a direction you will find of interest.

      A final note on Belloc and Chesterton – taken from elsewhere on the web:

      In 1923 Chesterton did write to Belloc that “you were the founder and father of this mission; we [others] were the converts but you were the missionary.”19 In his able biography of Belloc, John P. McCarthy concurs that Ches- terton “was very greatly indebted to Belloc in the formation of his opinions” and “should be regarded more as the articulate disciple in these matters.”

      I do not know Chesterton well enough to substantiate this or not, but as I plunge through two biographies of Belloc I see much which suggests it may be true.

      Again: great to have your voice here!

    The Gentle Traditionalist

     

    ”Roger Buck ... in the spirit of Chesterton and Belloc ... takes on everything—from the reforms of Vatican II to the New Age ... a wonderful book.”— MICHAEL MARTIN

    ”A tale of whimsical fantasy, melancholy realism, and supernatural joy ... Buck’s deftly-reasoned post-modern apologetic for full-blooded Catholicism—a Syllabus of Errors in narrative form, a rousing hymn to ‘meaning, grace, beauty, life’.” — PETER KWASNIEWSKI

    "As brilliant a guide for the perplexed as this age is capable of producing” — CHARLES A. COULOMBE

    ”Buck goes to the heart of the problem paralyzing our broken-hearted world ... moving beyond the spirit of the age to the Spirit who moves all ages.” — JOSEPH PEARCE

    ”In this elegant feast of a book, Roger Buck ... expertly skewers the modern world ... without a drop of malice in his compassionate soul ... to reveal the bright, shining love and truth at the center of the universe—symbolised by the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and incarnate in the Catholic Church.” — CHARLES A. COULOMBE

    ”A great service to the Church ... Buck shows that the New Age is an attempt, however flawed, to escape the materialism of modernity, and that it is Catholicism in its traditional forms that can best reveal the immense reality of the suffering and love for all mankind of Christ’s Sacred Heart.”— JOSEPH SHAW
