We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"A fad or heresy is the exaltation of something which even if true, is secondary or temporary in its nature against those things which are essential and eternal, those things which always prove themselves true in the long run. In short, it is the setting up of the mood against the mind."
A good and noble undertaking, and one that might consume the balance of your time, depending on your age, amount of available reading time, and how badly you suffer from ADD (takes me a month to read a paragraph!).
A good place to start would be Orthodoxy, as 2008 is the centennial of the appearance of that brief but profound book in GKC's bibliography.
Skook, iirc, twer two years ago you began the L&C volumes --have you checked to see who took longer to finish, you, or Lewis & Clark?
Haw haw. I'm like the Distributist, a month per paragraph --alas."Undaunted Courage", recent bestseller & my L&C reading effort, is still but half finished (my daunted perseverence).
Anyhoo, both PBS and National Geographic have wonderful L&C websites --take a look. You & the mizziz be sure and stay off the LoLo Trail in the Bitterroots --it liketa kilt the boys when they blazed it 200 year ago. "Trails indistinguishable from cliffs" someone said. Now that's steep.
