blog preview image by James Como      Everyone must be engaged in our struggle.       Given our station and norms the struggle naturally includes dinner parties: first, we are exquisitely skilled at giving them, and, second, we can contrive the arena.  (Say all you like about the ills of confirmation bias, ...Read More...

blog preview image by James Como  Our current civil war seems cultural, and therefore political, and threfore necessarily lapel-grabbing personal. Rarely does anyone on the Left attempt reasonable argument, or any persuasion; all is hortatory, imperative, urgent, condemnatory, dismissive. I used to think ‘progressives’ ...Read More...

blog preview image by James Como Chaos seems to be the concept du jour and our president its avatar.

blog preview image by James Como Vladimiro Montesinos In August 2016, I wrote here of Pedro Pablo Kuczynski (PPK), who had been sworn in as Peru’s president a month earlier.

blog preview image by James Como These days if I were to “take a knee” the crackling would wake the neighbors and there’s a good chance I wouldn’t make it back up, at least not for a while. I would be paying a price, as is the case, for example, when I (try to) genuflect at Mass, first leaning, then hoisting, on ...Read More...

blog preview image by James Como We arrived on Thursday morning, my wife and I, one full day after the troubling national elections: Would Geert Wilders’ (“I don’t hate Muslims, I hate Islam”) PPV party prevail?

blog preview image by James Como It’s been a while since I’ve read the magnificent Golding allegory I allude to in my title, but last weekend my high regard for it was renewed.
