James Kalb writes on how to Escape Egalitarian Tyranny with Socratic Questioning. This is a short but intense essay on how the modern world thinks (insofar as it does) and how Catholics may challenge those thoughts. The essay is philosophical but contains insights that could be translated into fiction writing.
Last month I discussed how the assumptions and language of public life today, which are based on commercial and bureaucratic concerns, are biased against Catholics. To make matters worse, the all-pervasive electronic media, increasing reliance on commerce and bureaucracy in everyday affairs, and changes in the purposes of formal education, along with its radical expansion, mean that the same assumptions and language have come to pervade the whole of life.
