What’s to be Done: On Holy Indifference Pt.1

How to beat discrepancies of modern living: half of your life you are corporate drone, waiter or construction worker and the other half you might just be striving for sainthood. Yet, as Mihai Marinescu tells us in this two part Eastern European self-help manual for aspiring rebels against the modern world, this is impossible. Then, what am I to do, one might ask? Well, gird yourselves with focus and patience and take a dip in this long and poignant analysis. We won't spoil too much for you if we give answer in advance: You can do what you can.

Sounds simple? It is anything but.

Orwell’s 1984 Revisited: Postmodernity and the Demise of Self-Made Man

Mihai Marinescu revisits Orwell's "1984" and provides us with the exposition of still darker undertones present in this work, popular perhaps for all the wrong reasons.

As Mihai demonstrates, the real horror of "1984" does not lay in the depiction of totalitarian monstrosity, as is customary understood. It is in the soul of its hero doomed to encounter his own reflection in the eye of executioner.

In this article he puts forth the question of distinction of religion as a given and religion as a choice, specifically from the standpoint of Orthodox Christianity. The final analysis yields some worrisome trends on display in the West, where conversion is, as it appears, confused with it's more or less militant inversion.
