Julian Jackson’s new biography of French general and statesman Charles de Gaulle illustrates how many lessons from revitalizing France after World War II can help fix present-day America.
The symbolism of the burning cathedral is unmistakable: the West has officially entered a post-Christian phase in history.
Notre Dame’s fate is a reminder of the ravages of utilitarianism. What is the purpose of civilization if not the creation and preservation of timeless beauty and transcendent grandeur for posterity?
On this episode of the Federalist Radio Hour, we discuss what the loss of Notre Dame means for Catholics, France, and the rebuilding of a historical masterpiece.

Neither Emmanuel Macron nor the media understand how serious the French tax revolts are, but the protesters can be bargained with if elites start paying attention.
Meanwhile, the media keeps downplaying the issue and distorting what’s really going on because it doesn’t fit their convenient narrative.
Donald Trump declines the authority of the cultural sectors that most assertively claim it. That’s the real conflict going on.
While war is sometimes necessary, World War I warns us not to reduce complex historical lessons into facile axioms, such as the need to ‘resist aggression.’
