We live in interesting times, but truth remains eternal. Modus Pownens, the blog, is my attempt to understand them both.
I’m philosophically inclined, though my formal academic training in the love of wisdom is modest. I won’t pretend to be an expert or scholar. I’m still young, still learning. Much of what I write here will be a honest grappling with what currently captures my humble intellect’s fancy.
Other times, I’ll resort to polemics. As stated earlier, we live in interesting times. The search for truth, a noble quest she may be, nevertheless must be subordinated sometimes to the politics of the day. And these days are indeed tumultuous. Full disclosure: I write from a Christian conservative, somewhat reactionary perspective.
All are welcome to comment here. I hold free expression as a high value and will tolerate a lot. But that tolerance has limits. Thus, I reserve the right to block anyone or disallow any comment that I deem gratuitously unproductive for dialogue in the comments. You know who you are, and you’ve been warned.
So let the pownage begin!
