About Brad Nelson

I like books, nature, politics, old movies, Ronald Reagan (you get sort of a three-fer with that one), and the founding ideals of this country. We are the Shining City on the Hill — or ought to be. However, our land has been poisoned by Utopian aspirations and feel-good bromides. Both have replaced wisdom and facts.

    One hour is a long time to listen to such an item; I rarely have that much time available between listening to CDs and watching TV. But anyone who has read That Hideous Strength would notice the hostility to various modern forms of statism. His disdain for modernist fallacies was also evident in some of the Narnia books, especially The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. His view of Hell in The Screwtape Letters was a nightmare of narcissistic grievance-oriented bureaucracy. I may try to listen to parts of this if I know how to get to some short excerpts that present the heart of his case.

    While effective SEO needn’t be difficult, it does take work.

    Eventbrite is an online party-planning tool with KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid)
    design so it is usually a top rated choice among event planners (organizers).
