    Salvo‘s own Regis Nicoll has written a very good piece for Touchstone magazine. It’s about how there are no shortcuts on the long road to cultural renewal and he uses the story of William Wilberforce’s England (early 1800s) as an illustration.

    In the eighteenth century, Great Britain was the great world power, as is the United States today. But it was also a country marred by rampant alcoholism, prostitution, political corruption, and the social injustices of hazardous factories, sixteen-hour workdays, and child labor. Crime, vice, and corruption were so bad in London that the city earned the epithet, “the devil’s drawing room.” On top of that, Britain was the world leader in the slave trade, a moral failing that Wilberforce sought to correct. Goedkoop Nike Air Max 2017

  • As a young parliamentarian, Wilberforce realized that while politicians and their policies bore responsibility for the execrable conditions of the day, they were not the cause of those conditions. The cause was the moral decline of society, which was owed, in large part, to the failure of the Church. Asics Gel Nimbus 14 damskie Air Jordan 11 Donna At the time, the Church of England was in full retreat from historical Christianity. Pew and pulpit were marked by nominal-to-heterodox beliefs. Soldes Nike Pour Homme Lay non-attendance was widespread, as was clerical neglect of congregational care. Kenley Jansen Authentic Jersey Particularly telling is what a pastor of the day, Joseph Milner, had to say about church leadership: “It is an affecting consideration to reflect what a number of clergymen there are whose lives demonstrate them to be wholly devoid of any religious sensibility whatever . . . adidasi new balance barbati pret Nike Air Max 2017 Heren zwart [and without] any concern for their own salvation or that of the flocks committed to their charge.” Wilberforce knew that without a “reformation of manners,” or what we might call the restoration of moral norms, ending slavery would be a lost cause. So he and a group of likeminded Christians pursued a dual track: they pushed for abolition while also establishing dozens of volunteer organizations devoted to raising the moral pitch of the culture. adidas shoes uk Although it took nearly fifty years, Wilberforce witnessed the end of the British slave trade and the beginning of the Victorian era—a period marked by an uncommon commitment to personal moral formation. Canotte Chicago Bulls Our current situation holds some remarkable parallels. asics pas cher Yet, to the modern mind, a 50-year struggle is unthinkable. nike outlet shop Raised in the media era, where the thorniest problems are solved in a 30-minute program if not a 30-second commercial, we’ve come to expect quick fixes for everything from bad breath to the War on Terror. Any problem older than last week’s news strains our patience. We are a people who trust that there is no challenge a little technology and political will can’t solve.

    . Mario Manningham – Michigan Wolverines . nike air max 2017 femme rouge Canotte Brooklyn Nets . There’s a general malaise among women in America today. In an article titled “The Paradox of Declining Female Happiness,” in the American Economic Journal (August 2009), researchers Betsey Stevenson and Justin Wolfers reported that, while the lives of women in the United States have improved extraordinarily “by many objective measures, yet we show that women’s happiness has declined both absolutely and relative to men.” As women have gained more freedom, education, and power, they have become less happy.

The answer is purportedly found in such books as Sharon Thompson’s Going All the Way: Teenage Girls’ Tales of Sex, Romance, and Pregnancy and Leora Tanenbaum’s Slut!
