Tony Esolen is a faithful Roman Catholic scholar. While there are certainly theological differences between Tony and historic Protestants, we share much in common and I have learned a lot from him. His two books, Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child and Life Under Compulsion: Ten Ways to Destroy the Humanity of Your Child, are devastating criticisms of modernity and it’s debilitating effect on children.
Tony is a college professor at Providence College, a small Roman Catholic institution in Rhode Island. The attached interview tells the story of his ongoing persecution by radical students and professors along with spineless administrators.
This is a good picture of where America is headed and for those of you who have the college decision in front of you, there is much to learn from this interview.
