Where Do We Go From Here?

"Our elected representatives have, for reasons best known to themselves, decided to poke an irritated and bilious bear, and to do so with a very short stick." That's how Douglas Wilson describes the current political temper in our Great Republic.

If that is the case, and I believe that it most assuredly is, then all of us "bilious bears" ought now be asking ourselves what we ought best do now. Growling and biting, clawing and roaring certainly have their merits. At certain moments, they are the only sane responses to the madness of our times.

But, to get on with some real productive work in the days ahead, we'll probably need to have more strategic responses in mind. To that end, New College Franklin is sponsoring a very special community-wide Collegium this Friday evening. Please join David Zanotti, President of the American Policy Roundtable and his team of policy experts as they lead us in a discussion about what's next. The program will run about 90 minutes with a time for questions and answers. Please plan on joining us and bringing your family and friends to this free event!

I'd be there if I could. God bless y'all for your efforts. Will this be recorded?

Yes, there will be audio recordings made available afterward. Watch for them on the King's Meadow website or podcasts.

Looking forward to Friday night. I found this current piece from across the pond on "the benignly soft totalitarianism of the modern bureaucratic welfare state" to be interesting, getting close to roots rather than branches:
