This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,
C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.
CS Lewis still makes sense. His world was dominated by Nazi Fascism, Soviet Communism, and Allied Democracy. It is a very small jump to the issues of today. This is not a right vs left issue; it is wrong vs. right. Both the political left and right are drawn into subjectivity to the point of depending on propaganda and manipulative rather than substantive rhetoric. Both borrow selective tidbits from objective, traditional morality as Lewis describes, raising one value over others when they are best together reinforcing each other, not in opposition.
