Vegetius

Vegetius | Conservatism | Scoop.it
"The only Latin art of war to survive, Vegetius' Epitome was for long an essential part of the medieval prince's military education.
Reggie Wood's insight:

"[H]e who desires peace, let him prepare for war. He who wants victory, let him train soldiers diligently. He who wishes a successful outcome, let him fight with strategy, not at random. No one dares challenge or harm one who he realizes will win if he fights."
~ Vegetius

Allan Carlson and the Politics of the Family - The Calvinist International

Allan Carlson and the Politics of the Family - The Calvinist International | Conservatism | Scoop.it
The Calvinist International is a forum for research, resourcement, and renewal of Christian wisdom.
Reggie Wood's insight:

Dr. Carlson’s project could be summed as “familial economics.” This means that he emphasizes the family as the most basic social formation, what he calls the “natural family” (as opposed to the nuclear family), and he emphasizes the kind of economy that is not only “compatible” with the natural family but in fact supportive of it. In doing so, he challenges modern global capitalism from both directions. He is very much old Right, really old Right, in his critique of feminism, gay marriage, individualism, and contraception; he is very much old Left in his critique of industrial capitalism, his emphasis on labor and families over capital, and his support of localism over and against large-scale corporations. This amounts to an extreme social conservativism with a local-communal economics, and this is why he calls his project a “Third Way.” Not many are going to understand him, and fewer are going to like him. That doesn’t matter. He’s on the side of the angels, and that side doesn’t win with big numbers: it wins with truth.
