What is Stormfields?
Through Stormfields, we hope to look at the world not with soundbytes, bumper stickers, and refrigerator magnets, but through serious analysis. Neither left nor right, we hope to appeal to the great 20th-century Christian Humanists such as Russell Kirk, Romano Guardini, Josef Pieper, Willa Cather, Christopher Dawson, and T.S. Eliot.
And, as we despise the supremacy of politics and the imperialism of the political sphere in our current world, we will focus much of the content on culture and art (high and popular), law, and philosophy. We're as likely to draw upon Jacques Maritain as we are on Neil Peart.
