I Can't Read My New Book!

My new book is an anthology of writings on economic liberty. Unfortunately, I’m not actually able to read the published edition, since it is in Romanian. My co-editor, Dr. Ovidiu Hurdezeu, asked me to put this anthology together to introduce Distributism and other localist economic ideas to the Romanian people, which should prove fertile ground for such ideas. Indeed, before the darkness of World War II and the communist occupation of Romanian, there was a vibrant peasants’ party in Romania, as Alan Carlson has noted in his Third Ways. Dr. Carlson has an essay in this collection. The title of the book translates as Economic Liberty: A Profound Romanian Renaissance.

Today, the Romanian economy is in shambles, with a government that is hostile to Romanian culture in the name of becoming “Europeans,” that is, subjecting the Romanian people to the bureaucrats in Brussels. The Romanians (and everybody else in Europe) can do better.

I will be in Romania for 10 days at the end of November to promote the book and the ideas contained in it. Romanian readers of this blog are invited to contact me for details of the trip.

Good deal, safe travels, hope you have fun!!

Hope you get a English translation soon...

Noticed that Eastern Europeans, now free from communism are falling right into line with NWO via USA alliances (bases,NATO, radar facilities,etc) and EU..very sad, giving up one tyranny for another, with "free market capitalism" to boot.....

Recall during JP2 pontificate, he warned of this trend, Eastern Europe going to extremes.

Light a fire under them, Professor!!

I hope you manage to ward off an addiction to the EU drug. We in Ireland have just voted "yes" to the second referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, after a barrage of scaremongering and threats. I was excoriated in work for openly planning to vote no. I said to an ardently pro-Lisbon colleague, "If you tell people that they're going to lose their jobs, they'll vote for anything." He said, "Of course", as though it was perfectly natural and inevitable. Whatever happened to national pride? I fear the shade of Chesterton is disappointed in us.

The Lisbon Treaty is but a piece of paper. Each country will find its own way of circumventing it. The EU is an artificial, elite construction,it has nothing to do with our Christian traditions or the traditional Europe. Call it Eurabia, or Euro-zone of NWO, or whatever. As a paradox, the nations of Europe feel more united in rejecting this behemoth, dreamt by both Hitler and Lenin, than in supporting it. Nobody would blame Ireland for voting "yes" to the Lisbon Treaty under the circumstances. The good thing is people realize now that this is an authoritarian/dictatorial empire that could not care less of the democratic process.

The EU could soon enforce those "piees of paper" via direct force or indirect via economic embargoes/sanctions....Maol, I was sorrowed to read the Lisbon treaty finally passed after the Irish were hit, repeatedly, over the head with it. Shien fein(?) had opposed it before and largely led the fight....

Now you get to march down the Godless road that Britain and USA have paved toward the NWO...

Proves that when a nation loses the Faith, is more devoted to "prosperity", they go down,down the rat hole......this includes the USA.

Sadly, too many Catholic today are like this:


My comments are in "moderation" right now, we will see if they get published or not…..likely, not as this is a Morley group site, run by Deal Hudson…...

sorry for mis-spellings......your co-worker is much like co-workers all over the world.

1.accept the status quo
2. dont fight, you will only lose
3. go along to get along
4.if so, you get the new TV and fun toys
5. if not, you are on the outs and not "cool"

Conformity is key, no rocking the boat....though, I knew a few fisherman some centuries ago that did a lot of boat rocking.....they were not lazy, self indulgent or "keep your heads down and submit" sheeple types.....

It's a good thing! I chuckled when I read the title. I am happy for you. I have often wondered how distributist ideas - especially those concerning private property would be received in Eastern Europe and elsewhere. I wish you well.
