Weekend Reading #10

It appears the reports of Conservatism’s death were premature. Sebastian Morello at The European Conservative responds to John Daniel Davidson’s We Need to Stop Calling Ourselves Conservatives, included in last week’s Weekend Reading.

Gladden Pappin and Chad Pecknold over at The Postliberal Order consider the relation between the Church’s spiritual power and the temporal power of the state as understood within the Catholic tradition and distinguish it from the broadly liberal tradition within which Church-State relations are increasingly understood.

Aaron Kheriaty examines the emergence of the biomedical surveillance state that has accelerated since COVID-19 in Compact.

Given the almost daily invocations of the antimonies of ‘democracy’ and ‘autocracy’, it might be worthwhile thinking about these matters from a classical legal and political perspective. This is what Julian G. Waller provides over at Ius & Iustitium in Classical Political Forms, the Mixed Regime, and the State of Emergency—Roman, Byzantine, Muscovite?

Dr Gregory Slysz discusses the internal ethnic fracturing in Ukraine and what it may portend at The Conservative Woman.

Auron MacIntyre in IM-1776 reflects upon the political prosecution of Steve Bannon and what is indicates about ‘Their’ Democracy.

Finally, Anthony Esolen over at Chronicles elaborates on greatness of heart as is reflected in Manzoni’s The Betrothed.
