New Article at TheeWesterner "We Are All Liberals Now"
I would like to point any readers of mine interested to a new article just completed and posted over at TheeWesterner.com It is about the nature of politics in the modern era, specifically the fact that all political thinking is tainted with modernist and liberal presuppositions derived from the English Liberals and State of Nature theorists.
It is my contention that it is impossible to introduce political ethics and moral thinking an a non-arbitrary sense if you do not adopt a teleological and theological apparatus acceptable throughout the political community.
This used to exist in scholastic thought. Eg) Thomas Aquinas built arguments on both reason and revelation, which directed the reader toward understanding of mans place within the cosmic order. We no longer conceive of nature as something man must adapt too however, but rather something to master, this modernist mastery mindset affects everything, and I wish I could have said more about it. Either way.
