An American Kingdom

The most immediately obvious problem with this article is that the religious right, even in its more moderate forms, is actually shrinking in size due to a wide range of factors, and that “non-religion” is the fastest-growing religious perspective. The Washington Post, the voice of the Bezos/CIA alliance, […]

The number of religious Americans has been declining for decades, but a new study suggests that trend is stalling

By Kelsey Vlamis, Insider The proportion of Americans who identify as religious has been steadily declining for decades. A new comprehensive study found that decline has stalled somewhat as mainline Protestants have increased their numbers.

The Neo-Protestant Sectarians

When you create a meme that inadvertently makes the point that “CRTs,” “SJWs,” and similar others are not so much “Marxists” as types of sectarian neo-Protestants. It’s also not surprising that black intellectuals like Derrick Bell, Kimberly Crenshaw, etc. would develop a theoretical framework like this given the […]

Enemies Of The Logic Of Totalitarianism

By Julian Langer, Anarchist News/Eco-Revolt Nomadism Not Dialectics I generally describe my anarchist-philosophy as ontological and one of my reasons for this is due to my lack of belief in authority, with my basic position being that all-is-(actually-)anarchy – the attempt at assuming authority I encounter as an […]

Must We Cancel Foucault?

By Mark G.E. Kelly, TELOS Michel Foucault’s name has never been far from scandal. Indeed, he has proven to be a perennially controversial figure. He rose to prominence in controversy, his ponderously scholarly 1966 book The Order of Things becoming a bestseller because marginal denunciations of humanism and […]

Cicero: Rome’s Greatest Defender

By Edward Whelan, Classical Wisdom There are many great Romans whose names are still honored to this day. None has been more feted down the centuries than Cicero. He was perhaps Rome’s greatest author and one of its greatest orators and philosophers. Cicero was also one the last […]

Church membership in the U.S. has fallen below the majority for the first time in nearly a century

But traditional religion is being replaced with political religions and free-for-all occultic and/or conspiratorial beliefs. Nietzsche would have predicted as much. So would Dostoevsky. By Sarah Pulliam Bailey, Washington Post The proportion of Americans who consider themselves members of a church, synagogue or mosque has dropped below 50 […]

Remembering Leo Strauss

One of the neocons’ intellectual godfathers. Know your enemy. By Grant Haver The political theorist Leo Strauss (1899-1973) is perhaps an unlikely subject for Chronicles’ “Remembering the Right” series. Although no one can deny the extensive influence of his ideas on the conservative (and later, neoconservative) movement in […]

Who is Winning the Culture War?

This is an interesting discussion of the culture wars from a serious left/Marxist perspective.  My viewpoint is that the cultural left has been the hands-down winner on most cultural issues (outside of certain narrow geographical, subcultural, institutional, or socioeconomic sectors). But the economic right has been the hands-down […]

Christianity and the State

Political Theology Today

By David Pan, TELOS What does political theology mean today? At the Telos-Paul Piccone Institute conference from which many of the essays in this issue originated, a primary goal was to discuss the crisis of secular liberalism and “how faith is reshaping culture and politics today.”[1] But even […]
