E. Wesley – Mackinac Center Intern
I won’t have time to post anything big since I’m preparing for an Intern University lecture. However, in keeping with the Russell Kirk theme, here’s a little poetic description of the beginning of the “Time of Trouble”: WWI. In this poem, Wilfred Owen points out the end of a Western progress (something I would term as the false ideology of progressivism), and ties this in with the history of Western politics. Although he perhaps over-glorifies Greece and Rome, the idea is that the Western World is losing its luster. This fact is incontrovertible, but not inevitable for the future. Let us restore that which has been lost.
