The argument is that we should suspend moral judgment, that the film is a work of art with a complicated meaning, and the real problem is one of interpretation.
Spencer Klavan, host of “The Young Heretics” podcast, and Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky discuss on the philosophy of the modern left on The Federalist Radio Hour.
Our culture has gone from the ‘don’t judge’ mantra of a couple decades ago to judging everyone, but we did not reestablish a rational foundation for that judgment along the way.
In contrast to critical theory, Christianity offers an identity as children of God that transcends our differences. It is thus that the sons of slaves and the sons of slaveowners can be brothers.
Sir Roger Scruton was a warrior for Western culture. Culture was, for him, everything: ‘a vessel in which intrinsic values are captured and handed on to future generations.’
Today’s era of despair, ennui, and selfishness can find remedies within ageless wisdom that the church reformer Martin Luther offered to his depressed friend 500 years ago.

By emphasizing the importance of local knowledge and gradual reform, conservatives can play a special role in keeping philanthropy tethered to charity and to the Tocquevillian vision of associational life.
Teaching on Aristotle’s ‘Nichomachean Ethics,’ Dr. Larry Arnn says it’s our intentions about a choice that determine whether it is a good one.
‘There are obstacles, temptations and confusions that are in the way, but if you think about it and you keep your soul in order and your attitude right, then you will make better choices.’
