Recovering biblical masculinity in a world of softness.

    Backstage at County Before Country

    Backstage at County Before Country

    I talked with John Moody, one of the keynote speakers at County Before Country in Batavia, Ohio (2022), in between guest lectures at the conference, to get his thoughts on localism, Christian cosplay, and the need to be a Samwise in your own community. Nate Spearing spoke with Aaron Renn about counter-insurgencies, culture war, and why the conservative right always loses.

    The Secret Life of Fruit Trees

    The Secret Life of Fruit Trees

    The average fruit tree takes between three and seven years, on average, to produce fruit after first planting. Whether you want plum, pear, apple or apricot, it's at minimum a multi-year investment. In a world driven by the fast-paced industrial time clock, Google calendars broken down into five-minute segments, and a consumer-driven culture that wants what it wants and wants it yesterday, the enduring patience of fruit trees has much to teach us.

    Doing the Ashes Work

    Doing the Ashes Work

    From Virgil to Dante to Dumas, the greats have understood a major thematic element in the story of masculinity‚ĶThe descent into darkness. There must be descent. To find the golden branch of the ancient tree, men must descend into suffering, eating ashes, grief, death.¬† Men must learn, as Robert Bly says, the season of ‚Äúeating ashes.‚ÄĚ We'll talk about that in today's episode.

Life changing. Truly.

In a world filled with soft, chest-less, evan-jellyfish boys, we need more shows like this. If you hate being convicted you’re gonna hate this show. Men, act like men. Listen to this show. Rule your household well. Rule your city well. I love this show and recommend it to all of my brothers in Christ.
