    Re: The Renegade History‘s perspective on slavery: “Economic historians have determined that on average, Northern farmers worked four hundred more hours per year than did slaves. And no group in world history worked more than industrial workers in the nineteenth-century United States. For the unlucky souls who found themselves in the first American factories, the […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Feast Day of Pius X. A friend just gave me a relic of Pius X, so on this day, I’m better than everyone else. Will we ever know what exactly happened at Charlottesville? Probably not, but Tom Woods recently hosted Kevin Preston, a “leftist anarchist,” who has spent a lot of time analyzing […]

    BYCU “The English were well known throughout Europe for their addiction to ale and wine and cider. The French were proud, the Germans were obscene, and the English were drunkards. In English monasteries the daily allowance was a gallon (4.5 litres) of strong ale and a gallon (4.5 litres) of weak ale.” Peter Ackroyd, Foundation: […]

    “It is absurd to claim, as a few have done, that the New Deal, the basis of what we now know as “liberalism,” was identical to either German Nazism or Italian Fascism. But it is equally absurd to ignore, as all our textbooks do, the fact that the New Deal and European fascism grew from […]

    I logged onto my computer this morning and saw this AFP story: Trump defiant on Charlottesville unrest: ‘Blame on both sides’ That’s all he’s saying: There is a violent left, as well as a violent right. Racism and Nazis are repugnant, but so are the violent leftists that have been attacking people with clubs and […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling I had only caught snippets of the news here and there after Charlottesville. From what I heard: there was a white supremacist rally, where Gavin McInnes was going to speak (which was flat-out false, but didn’t stop Newsweek from saying it); there was a (probably) even bigger counter-protest by antifa (Anti-Fascists), who define […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Feast of the Assumption today. Or, as our eastern brethren known it in their mysterious ways, “The Dormition of the Theotokos.” But if you don’t want to celebrate the sleep of the God bearer, you can induce your own sleep at The Church of Cannabis. There’s always something new in Colorado these days. […]

     


    "The Daily Eudemon is the sort of thing that Chesterton or Mencken would be doing, if they were alive today. It's what, in saner times, was called journalism. In the writing and in the reading, it's exactly the sort of leisure we should want at the basis of culture."
    Mike Aquilina, Author of The Fathers of the Church and TV Talk Show Host.

    "Literate Catholicism-urbane, witty, engaged-is alive and well! If you can read, you should be reading The Daily Eudemon!" David Scott, author of A Revolution of Love: The Meaning of Mother Teresa

    "If you like your blogs pithy, nimble, pointed, high-spirited, and waggish, then bookmmark Eric Scheske's The Daily Eudemon. Ooops! You want prolixity, density, meandering, dull, and sober? Then run (do not walk!) to the blogs of the major news outlets. They have just what you want. Honestly they do." John Peterson, Editor, G.K. Chesterton: Collected Works, Volumes 12 and 13.

    "Eric Scheske's web site is full of information and insight.  Always worth a read."  James V. Schall, Author of Another Sort of Learning.

    "Eric Scheske has one of the few indispensable sites in an overcrowded blogosphere." Thomas E. Woods, Jr., Ph.D., New York Times Bestselling Author and Author of How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization.
