Hilaire Belloc's classic 1918 essay shows how mass media (in his day, newspapers) are a product of capitalism, selling for less than production costs with the balance made up from advertising. This makes newspapers beholden to their advertisers and slants the truths which they can deliver to the masses, leading to a huge potential conflict of interest. An interesting and insightful indictment of the power of capitalism vs. truth in the mass media, as valid today as when it was first written.

Categories: Bibles
I say the Catholic "conscience" of history--I say "conscience"--that is, an intimate knowledge through identity: the intuition of a thing which is one with the knower--I do not say "The Catholic Aspect of History." This talk of "aspects" is modern and therefore part of a decline: it is false, and therefore ephemeral: I will not stoop to it.

Publisher: Ignatius Press
Published Date: 2018-04-10

The Serville State has endured as his most important political work. The effect of socialist doctrine on capitalist society, Belloc wrote, is to produce a third thing different from either - the servile state, today commonly called the welfare state.

Published Date: 2016-03-22
Categories: Religion
Here the great Belloc shows that ever since the disaster of the Protestant Reformation, Western civilization (which was formed by the Catholic Faith) has been coming apart--since Calvinism opened the door to usury, unbridled competition, the domination of the mind by money, and ultimately the return of slavery. Belloc says our 2 choices are a return to Catholicism or chaos! Essential for anyone who would understand our world today!

Hilaire Belloc Books, Hilaire Belloc poetry book The Path to Rome Authors: Hilaire Belloc
Publisher: Ignatius Press
Published Date: 2003
Categories: Religion
A classic spiritual journey through the heart of Christendom. Considered by Belloc himself, and by most critics, his greatest work, this classic book is the delightful story of the pilgrimage Belloc made on foot to Rome in order to fulfill a vow he had made ...and see all Europe which the Christian Faith has saved... In The Life of Hilaire Belloc, Robert Speaight states: More than any other book he ever wrote, The Path to Rome made Belloc's name; more than any other, it has been lovingly thumbed and pondered.... The book is a classic, born of something far deeper than the physical experience it records.

Hilaire Belloc Books, Hilaire Belloc poetry book Europe and the Faith Authors: Hilaire Belloc
Publisher: Cosimo, Inc.
Published Date: 2007-11-01
Categories: History
First published in 1920, Europe and the Faith is Belloc's popular history of European civilization from the time of the Roman Empire. From the outset, the author's goal is clear. He intends to show readers how, through the Romans and Catholicism, Europe came to be in its present state: "Europe is the Church, and the Church is Europe." Students of both history and religion will find this treatise a quirky apology for the influence of Catholicism in Europe. French writer and thinker HILAIRE BELLOC (1870-1953) is known as "the man who wrote a library." He expounded extensively on a number of subjects, including French and British history, military strategy, satire, comic and serious verse, literary criticism, topography and travel, translations, and religious, social, and political commentary. Among his most famous works are The Path to Rome (1902) and Emmanuel Burden (1903).

Hilaire Belloc Books, Hilaire Belloc poetry book The Mercy of Allah Authors: Hilaire Belloc
Publisher: Cosimo, Inc.
Published Date: 2005-05-01
Categories: History
First published in 1922, The Mercy of Allah describes the civilization of the Arabs through the extraordinary tales a wealthy grandfather relates to his beloved grandchildren. These richly textured stories show how this prosperous Arab deceived his own countrymen to gain great fortunes, while also demonstrating the richness of Arab culture through the ages. The cultural standards described are still quite common in the Middle East. Mahmoud's saga points out the contrasts between Western and Eastern attitudes toward trade, banking, and human relations. And, of course, we see the central roles that religion and family play in everyday Arab life.

Poem of the day

Ernest Dowson Poem
Vain Hope
 by Ernest Dowson

Sometimes, to solace my sad heart, I say,
Though late it be, though lily-time be past,
Though all the summer skies be overcast,
Haply I will go down to her, some day,
And cast my rests of life before her feet,
That she may have her will of me, being so sweet
And none gainsay!
