A few nights ago, I attended the launch of a book entitled “Liberal Shock: The Conservative Comeback”. This book is basically a collection of essays centred around the topic of Conservatism by a number of notable figures in both political and academic spheres. I had the privilege of meeting one of the authors, Damien Freeman. […]Read More Burke, Freedom and Conservatism in Australia
Recently, on an online platform known as Quora, I answered a question in which I had the choice to hypothetically remove any invention from the history of mankind. In my answer, I explored the reasons why I would choose to remove a technology such as IVF over removing things such as weapons of mass destruction […]Read More The moral implications and devolution of IVF
In today’s society, there is often found what I perceive to be a profound loss of humanity’s sense of the sacred and holy.

As our society becomes gradually more and more secular, and pagan, anything and […]Read More A Loss of the Sense of the Sacred
If I had tried giving you my favourite book from the Narnia series a couple of weeks ago, I would almost surely have said The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

I recently purchased a copy of Peter Kreeft’s “Practical Theology, Spiritual Directions from Saint Thomas Aquinas” and was simply delighted by the wealth of information contained inside. Aquinas was simply a master when it came to Theology and there is much to be learned from his works. While flipping through the pages of this precious […]Read More On Gay Ideology, False Prophets and the Denunciation of Both.
C. S. Lewis was, without a doubt, a brilliant writer. He is perhaps most famously known for his beloved children’s series, The Chronicles of Narnia. For others, his Screw-Tape Letters provide a much welcome insight into the tactics of the devil, whilst also being delivered in a tasteful manner. And again, his little book on […]Read More C. S. Lewis, a brief introduction and some thoughts on the Chronicles of Narnia. (part i)
