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.
C.S. Lewis was one who linked to a thinker, the same G.K. Chesteron we had some fun with yesterday
Then I read Chesterton's Everlasting Man and for the
first time saw the whole Christian outline of history
set out in a form that seemed to me to make sense . . .
I already thought Chesterton the most sensible man alive
"apart from his Christianity." Now, I veritably believe,
I thought that Christianity itself was very sensible
"apart from its Christianity." (Surprised by Joy p.223) http://www.geocities.com/seapadre_1999/chesterton.html
