Against Jake Meador the Trad Dad?

Jake Meador with Rod Dreher

At Thermidor Mag, P. T. Carlo has written against the trad dads and their bourgeois apologism. I agree with him, and my hatred of most self-styled traditionalists’ nasty penchant for doubling down on bourgeois commitments – as Cyprian of Carthage says (Epistulæ 74.9.2.179–82), ‘custom without truth is an error dressed in old clothes’ – but I was a little surprised to see Jake Meador looking back at me in the photo. Hi, Jake. Don’t get purged in the DOTR, mkay? Well, at least you don’t wear problem glasses.
