The Orthosphere gets noticed

Fellow Orthospheric blogger Svein Sellanraa has a complimentary article about us in the Brussels Journal.  Svein is joining the movement just in time–Bruce was starting to worry that we’re going to peter out as one after another of us gets to busy to keep blogging.

  1. Bonald, you along with the other members of the Orthosphere and Alternative Right have truly inspired me. I would still be lost in the Liberal paradigm had I never found your work. It may not mean much coming from just one man, but you rescued this person from the abyss. For that, I shall be eternally grateful. To show my gratitude I decided to begin blogging and will take our message to one of the most frequented conspiracy theory sites on the net where I am a top contributing member.

    This movement has only just begun.

  2. Hello Miles,

    I’m honored that you’ve found us useful. Thank you for sharing the link to your website so that we can check it out from time to time.

  3. Hee, hee… you’re so polite, Bonald. 🙂

  4. Actually, I too have been inspired, and am trying to coordinate with some other guys on an Eastern Orthodox Orthosphere site. We’re still getting some things worked out.

    Curious, to become more philosophically literate, what would you suggest I read? I am already reading Copelton’s history of philosophy, so what else can you add?

  5. Funny you should say that, Chris. I’m pondering the possible need for an explicitly Protestant Orthospheric site. Alas, I haven’t the time to create it.

  6. I’m a traditional Catholic who just discovered your site and has a fair amount of experience writing, both as an essayist and a novelist. My personal worldview has long been in line with this sort of thinking (big fan of Adler, Aquinas, Aristotle, Garrigou-Lagrange, et al). If you or others are busy and are looking for more contributors, I’d be happy to join the ranks. I have a sort of compulsion to write – something I’d guess you’re familiar with – so I write these sorts of articles anyways, even when I don’t bother to show them to anyone. Anyways, feel free to shoot me an email if you’re interested. I can send you an article/essay or two so you can sample my stuff.

  7. Why not start a blog and join our little circle? We’re small yet — there’s always room for more!

  8. so I write these sorts of articles anyways, even when I don’t bother to show them to anyone.

    Rofflesauce.

    *shrug* I guess that’s what people had to do before there were blogs. But now we have blogs. You should definitely start one.

  9. Sounds like a good idea actually; unfortunately, I’ll have to begin shamelessly self-promoting now. I’ve decided to go with the name Mundicide (Latin nerds will catch the meaning), so mundicide.wordpress.com will be my site. Hopefully I’ll have a few posts up in the next week, so come check it out. If I run with it, I may have to bribe a few of you guys for blogroll links.

  10. Hello d_senti,

    I’m sorry it’s taken so long to reply. Welcome to the Orthosphere. I agree with samsonsjawbone and Proph–having your own blog is a great thing to do for those of us who enjoy this sort of writing but don’t want to give up our day jobs. At some point, I wonder if consolidation will start to make sense–a collaborative journal in addition to the individual blogs–but having one’s own blog seems to be the best way to find one’s own voice, as it were.
