The Essence of Fascism (Umberto Eco) - excerpts

7.27.2020, 12:46 am

1. The first [basic] feature of [fascism] is the cult of tradition...[T]here can be no advancement of learning. Truth has been already spelled out once and for all, and we can only keep interpreting its obscure message.

2. Traditionalism implies the rejection of modernism...The Enlightenment, the Age of Reason, is seen as the beginning of modern depravity. In this sense [fascism] can be defined as irrationalism.

Coming to Christ does not resolve your questions, 
  or end your search.
Your questions are deeper,
  the search more profound.

"Holding on to unforgiveness is like taking poison and expecting the other person to die."

It's been at least 10 years, I think, since I regularly blogged. A few years ago, I tried Tumblr, but found it too limiting. Prior to that, I blogged on a site called Covblogs for many years - but when Covblogs eventually disappeared, it took my blog with it.

I hope to use this site both to record my current thoughts in a medium less evanescent than a Facebook post, as well as to share writings and blog posts from my past.
