32. Review: Suicide by Emile Durkheim

In Suicide, Emile Durkheim explores the sociological factors that lead a society toward greater or lesser rates of suicide. I specifically explore his analysis of egoistic suicide, or suicide driven by the breakdown of integrated social institutions and the dominance of individualism in a culture. I also touch on anomie, the disappearance of social norms that, in a healthy society, provide the structure of culture that help provide people with a sense of social stability.

31. Review: After the Flight 93 Election by Michael Anton

In this episode I look at Michael Anton's After the Flight 93 Election, a discussion of the danger, both to conservatism and the nation as a whole, posed by the post 1960s left. Anton's famous essay explains the need to elect Trump and to hold the left at bay at all costs, and the failure of conservatives to do so for decades. I also explore Anton' explanation for the the basis of republican government.

The Atheist Conservative

Just throwing out a quick post to recommend The Atheist Conservative. There are very few places where conservatives who don't subscribe to the standard Judeo-Christian vision of conservatism can gather and discuss their ideas without having to defend them from religious folks. Nothing against the religious folks, but it's nice to have a space of our own. The Facebook page is pretty active, and the website has tons of great articles.
