[Mandeville, LA – It’s 10:00 O’Clock, Do You Know What Your Daughter Is Reading? – The awards for best 2017’s “children’s books” are out and the winners are… well, as Rod Dreher discovers, dystopian fantasies about piling on in rejecting sacred order. But the bottom of the chasm is near!
The classical education movement is a positive response to this crisis. You will not read, see, or hear much about it, certainly not by comparison to the attention paid to the National Book Award winners. But it exists, and it stands as a rebuke to the garbage culture our elites embrace, as well as the garbage popular culture. The classical education movement is building a living future amid the American deathworks.
I like the term “deathworks” not because I like “death” (as if!) but because death is to be avoided until, at God’s choosing, one’s time has come. It is an accurate characterization of life in the Modern ruins: death is all around us but death cannot claim ultimate victory; only life and the living can.
