The Orthodox Nationalist: Knowledge and Rationality


Matt Johnson discusses:

  • Knowledge and rationality for the few;
  • People inherently irrational and self-interested;
  • The fraud of modern liberalism and academia;
  • St. Augustines Contra Academicos (396
    AD);
  • Scholarship versus amateurism, pretension,
    intellectualism;
  • Asceticism as the bridge between appearance and Reality.
