Thanks for all the sweet comments on the previous post. You guys made me feel great about blogging again! I really hope I can get back into daily posting. I just need to avoid placing unnecessary pressure on myself. This is supposed to be fun, right?
My biggest obstacle is myself. I have so much on my mind (thanks to current events) that it’s difficult to focus on one thing and write about it. Not only that, but the challenge to write something edifying looms large. I guess I could say that I’ve finally taken Mom’s advice and applied it to writing: If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.
A couple of people had questions so I thought I’d take the opportunity to answer them today.
Are you liking the Levin book?
Yes! It’s kind of hard to dislike a book that so clearly explains my conservative ideology.
On a related note, Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning is a fascinating read. Fascism has been in American government for a lot longer than I thought. Jonah Goldberg provided some much needed perspective and I’m sleeping much better. I’m not happy about where we are, I’m not optimistic about the future, I do not see a truly conservative man or woman on the horizon who can lead us out of this mess, but I’m fighting anxiety with faith and the Lord has blessed me with sleep.
