The correspondence between Khomiakov and Palmer on Orthodoxy and the problems the latter had with it. Most, if not all, of the Khomiakov-quotes Abp. Kallistos Ware uses in his books come from this little work. "All Protestants are Crypto-Papists" for example.

Dorothy Day: Selected Writings


The words of Thomas Merton and Dorothy Day are nectar for my soul. I got these books in the mail today and I've been soaking them up. Merton's elegy of Flannery O'Connor is worth it alone.

I just finished Communist Manifesto by: Karl Marx (No, I'm not a Communist).

I'm starting to read Og Mandino's The Greatest Salesman in the World, it's alright.

I've been going into shorter books and pamphlets recently, maybe after this I'll read War and Peace again or something.

All the malladies of "capitalism" that most people criticize comes from market and government working together. Officializing this cohabitation with a marriage would just make things worse in my opinion.

Separation of state and market is the answer. Now, to give all the powers of state to the guys with the big money or all the control of the big money to the state? They are basically the same thing *and* the solution anti-capitalists seem to think is morally correct. Capitalism and/or classical liberalism = separation of market and state, which follows in the grand tradition of separation of powers, subsidiarity of governance, separation of state and government, split of large concentrated goverment into federated local smaller governments, separation of emperor and bishop, of goverment and the military, of state and the people and so on. The key is to not let any single group to centralize too much power or to have too much control, which allows for checks and balances. The progress of social governance is, again in my opinion, the progress of descentralization of powers of all kinds: military, economic, political, cultural, scientific, religious.

I don't think I've ever seen such a posive review of that book. I see you've yet to learn much about Orthodoxy until you can be chrismated baptized. Perhaps you can start by practicing angry face in front of a mirror. If that feels hard, try thinking some abominations like pews or beardless men.

Pews enable one to sit down.

True, but they hinder movement, prostrations and are alien, rather like that other abomination the organ, surely?
You have an argument with some of your Orthodox Churches which have both pews and organs. I asked the wife of the priest at the local Orthodox Church as to why they use the organ in Church and she said that it was only to insure that people were singing on the correct key.

Eh. When a church is 'inherited', ripping out the pews (and replacing them with chairs and stasidia) and organ can be too much of a bother and/or expense.

Verdi is good. Puccini is better, though.
