Veritas et Sapientia
Mandeville, LA – “The anti-Trump movement suffers from insularity. Most of the people who detest Trump don’t know anybody who works with him or supports him. And if they do have friends and family members who admire Trump, they’ve learned not to talk about this subject. So they get most of their information about Trumpism...

Mandeville, LA – Analogies can easily be multiplied, if one wants to push a thesis; but the point is that the greatest threat to world peace and international justice is the nation state gone bad, claiming an absolute power, deciding questions and making “laws” beyond its competence. The world divorced from the God who created and...

Mandeville, LA – “Jesus told his disciples that there will be people at the threshold of heaven, claiming to have done great things in his name, only to be told, “I never knew you”—people like the rich man whose spiritual valuation was all wrong. As we enter the New Year, these warnings should prompt us...

Mandeville, LA –  [Editor’s Note: In this Papal Bull, Pope John XXIII captures the fundamental problem that gnaws at Modern Society: Men are defiant when confronted by the Truth especially when that Truth involves a proper ordering of their lives and their thoughts. This is evidenced by the sheer number of men who choose to...

Mandeville, LA – According to the dominant paradigm shared by most people, religious and secular alike, the world is now divided into two camps: people of faith and people of no faith. Occam’s razor says they were in religious ecstasy—their kind of religious ecstasy, in which abortion on demand becomes the gnostic equivalent of a central sacrament. But this...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: To those Christians who do not have a loving and abiding devotion to the Mother of Our Lord consider, as Saint Bernard of Clairvaux exhorts, that Mary of Nazareth, immaculately conceived, still had her Free Will and could have told Gabriel ” no”. As a matter of fact, Gabriel was...

Mandeville, LA – If this kingdom was so great and lasting without the aid of the gods, why is the ample territory and long duration of the Roman empire to be ascribed to the Roman gods? For whatever is the cause in it, the same is in the other also. But if they contend that the prosperity of the other also is to be...

Mandeville, LA – About 10 years ago I wrote an article for Austrian readers explaining that American politicians who say they’ll “get government off our backs” have no intention of keeping that promise. Their real plan is to provide favors for their donors at taxpayers’ expense and with a little luck maybe create a new agency...

Mandeville, LA – “Joachim and Anne were the parents of Mary. Joachim kept as strict a watch over his thoughts as a shepherd over his flock, having them entirely under his control. For the Lord God led him as a sheep, and he wanted for none of the best things. When I say best, let...

Mandeville, LA – “If I’m not loved, that’s just too bad! I tell the whole truth, and if anyone doesn’t wish to know the truth, let her not come looking for me. We should never allow kindness to degenerate into weakness. When we have scolded someone with just reason, we must leave the matter there,...

Mandeville, LA  – From the Gospels it appears that there were a lot of bigwigs Jesus didn’t like. He spoke harshly about scribes and Pharisees. And he had problems with the religious authorities, who condemned him to death, and rich people, whom he advised to divest themselves of their wealth. (On one memorable occasion, he drove...

Mandeville, LA – Let’s look at it another way: Has there ever been a time when the Church, from pope to parish priest to parishioner in the pew, was perfect? But there have always been saints. There have always been saints because there have always been those few individuals who didn’t, in this sense, fret about...

Mandeville, LA – “Surely, there is at this day a confederacy of evil, marshalling its hosts from all parts of the world, organizing itself, taking its measures, enclosing the Church of Christ as in a net, and preparing the way for a general Apostasy from it. Whether this very Apostasy is to give birth to...

Mandeville, LA – Conservatism in a postmodern moment must therefore be different than the conservatism that motivated Burke or Taft or Disraeli or Reagan. The school of conservatism that might be most fitted for this moment, is paradoxically, the one that is the one least inclined to modernity. This would be a form of conservatism known...

Mandeville, LA – The bronze dragons in the assault move ponderously and open breaches in the city walls. Fiery versions are thwarted by the smooth, steep incline of Gondolin’s hill. But a third variety, the iron dragons, carry Orcs within and move on ‘iron so cunningly linked that they might flow … around and above all...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: In my talk “How I Learned To Stop Worrying & Save The Free World” I quoted G.K. Chesterton our Veritas et Sapientia muse on society being run by men in dresses, listen to my talk here, the Chesterton Quote appears inline.– Ed., M.C.] Libraries have been written on modernity’s seepage...

Mandeville, LA – Mainstreamers are stuck in the ’90s. Many of the senior foreign-policy advisers in the Western world are in their late 40s, 50s, and 60s. They often began their careers near the end of the Cold War. They often adore their mentors, from whom they took a sense of self-importance, a belief that every...

Mandeville, LA – The attempt to contemplate history in all its dimensions and in the fullness of its detail led directly to the conviction that this world of substantial things and substantial events is the very world which the Leftist of our time wishes to see abolished; and such policy now began to appear egotistical and...

Mandeville, LA – The mission of the Church is to all nations and to all ages. ” Going therefore, teach ye all nations Teaching them to observe  all things whatsoever I have commanded you ; and behold, I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world”. The doctrines of the Church must...

Mandeville, LA – However, in early democracies, as in the American democracy at the time of its birth, all individual human rights were granted because man is God’s creature. That is, freedom was given to the individual conditionally, in the assumption of his constant religious responsibility. Such was the heritage of the preceding thousand years....

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: I cut and pasted from this essay to select the points James Davis Hunter makes on the death of the Enlightenment and the futility of performing CPR on it. – MC ] As Hannah Arendt observed, the moral and political authority of the Enlightenment project and the Western tradition more...

Mandeville, LA – In Christendom, Gierke wrote, “Church and State were two Co-ordinate Powers” between which there was to be “an inseverable connexion and an unbroken interaction which must display itself in every part and also throughout the whole” of society. The Church, in short, was the soul of the body politic. But with the...

Mandeville, LA – There is a recurring theme on my radio show about the parasite class that the “enlightenment” has created. This class produces poverty, war and lust as sicknesses disguised as ecstasies. To keep the perversions from appearing to be the destructive forces they are, religion has been corrupted to embrace and propagate the...

Mandeville, LA – When I took my seat in the Convention, I found them attempting to bring forward a system which, I was sure, never had entered into the contemplation of those I had the honor to represent, and which, upon the fullest consideration, I considered not only injurious to the interest and rights of this...

Mandeville, LA – By the early twenty-first century, Americans had become accustomed to, even took for granted, virtually everything against which George Washington and Thomas Jefferson had warned: gigantic public and private debt, a massive national government, entangling foreign alliances, a standing army, undeclared war in the form of military interventionism, the destruction of American agrarianism,...

Mandeville, LA – “In Paradise there are many Saints who never gave alms on earth: their poverty justified them. There are many Saints who never mortified their bodies by fasting, or wearing hair shirts: their bodily infirmities excused them. There are many Saints too who were not virgins: their vocation was otherwise. But in Paradise there...

Mandeville, LA – “A real change however came with the Protestant revolt. Although, at this — one might almost say — sociological level, the alteration was not that great in Anglican or Lutheran regions (where rejection of the Catholic Liturgical heritage was similarly ambiguous), it tended to be in Calvinist areas. There, there was little...

Mandeville, LA – “To many who have no sympathy with Catholicism, who inherit the old Protestant animosity to the Church (although doctrinal Protestantism is now dead) and who think that any attack on the Church must somehow or other be a good thing, the struggle already appears as a coming or present attack on what...
Read More
Mandeville, LA – The Catholic religion’s stance on chastity is a very conservative one. Church doctrine was, and still is, very stern when it comes to sex. Sex is strictly reserved for marriage and any expression of sexuality outside of it is seen as a sin. During the Renaissance as well as today, this is not...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s Note: Melvin E. Bradford was a titan in the stand made against Leo Strauss and his army of faux intellectuals responsible for the rise of today’s neocons and the religion of ‘Murican Exceptionalism”. Bradford wrote this essay in the late 1990’s. – Ed. M.C.] “Predictably, Jefferson’s Union did die­ in 1861. And in...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: I’ve used this passage from G.K. Chesterton’s What’s Wrong With The World in more than one talk I’ve given recently and find it both humorous and provocative. Enjoy! – M.C. Ed.] “There is an awful armor of ice which may be the legitimate protection of a more delicate organism; but whatever...

Mandeville, LA – [The following was written by Sir Walter Scott.] Breathes there the man, with soul so dead, Who never to himself hath said, This is my own, my native land! Whose heart hath ne’er within him burn’d, As home his footsteps he hath turn’d From wandering on a foreign strand! If such there...

Mandeville, LA – The standard narrative of Catholic moral progressivism is that Church moral doctrine doesn’t change; it just becomes completely irrelevant. God is asking you to do the opposite of what God’s law tells you that you should do. Since this has been going on for generations, from times well before the dreaded Vatican II,...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: This quote is sourced from a speech given by Samuel Untermayer titled “Sacred War”. There is no byline or date available that I can locate for this quote thus it remains circa 1935.- M.C. Ed.] “What in God’s name is wrong with America? Can it be that’ the only true...

Mandeville, LA – To complete the picture we may mention the mass of art books, which no more betrayed the regime under which they were appear- ing than did the books already mentioned. Here, too, there was a clear fundamental tendency — to turn away to the heritage of the past and to pay homage to...

Mandeville, LA – [From The Zippy catholic”] “In 1689, during the lifetime of John Locke, free speech meant that a member of parliament formally charged with a speech crime committed during a session of parliament had to be tried by parliament, not some other judicial body. In 2017, free speech means that you can say...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note – Professor’s Wax and Alexander’s analysis is spot on, they even use the term “solidarity” correctly, but what is missing is the call to action they do not make: The Church is the SOURCE of the bourgeois culture they say needs a return and only a revival of the parish...

Mandeville, LA – A poem by my Philosophy instructor Brother Francis Maluf. Available from Loredo Press here. What seek ye, brave and valiant knight Well Armed and Well prepared? So much in earnest for a fight So eager not to be spared. I am a Christian, he replied Summoned by Christ’s command, To free the...

Mandeville, LA – Education confers happiness and usefulness, and therefore demands attention. No maxim is more readily admitted than that a wise and free government should provide for the education of its citizens; but the maxim seems not to be admitted to its just extent. Nor is it only as a refuge from the dangers...
