Insights from Dreher

Recently I read Thinkr’s condensation of Rod Dreher’s Live Not by Lies: A Manual for Christian Dissidents. One key insight: “Fragmentation and isolation are close friends that cultivate the ideal breeding ground for an oppressive ideology to flourish.” He recommends we engage with small groups who practice truth apart from oppressive technology, because the most powerful means of resistance is faith. Begin today to cultivate belief within the context of a small group if you have not already done so. And (to draw another idea from Dreher) protect your privacy as much as possible.
