Crunchy Cons – new Book on Conservative Greenies!

Love it! Can’t wait to read it…
I’ve long self identifed as a Crunchy Conservative, Granola Neo-Con, or Green Christian.
How wonderful to know that I am NOT ALONE!!!
The big identifiers that have had my liberal friends scratching their heads for years to know exactly who I am and what I believe…
Homebirth Activist
Extended Breastfeeder
Birkenstock wearer
Baby in sling – attachment parenting

Conservatively dressed for church!
I do have a perverse sense of humor though. I have long been in the habit of dressing conservative (Panty hose, pumps, long skirts, and button down preppy shirt, hair in a bun) for green events that I have attended, and I love to dress hippy (open toed birks, natural cotton pants, baby in sling attached to my breast, no makeup, hair streaming) for conservative gatherings.

Keep em wondering…
I will NOT be stereotyped.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Crunchy Conservatism!

A Crunchy Con Manifesto
By Rod Dreher
1. We are conservatives who stand outside the conservative mainstream; therefore, we can see things that matter more clearly.
2. Modern conservatism has become too focused on money, power, and the accumulation of stuff, and insufficiently concerned with the content of our individual and social character.
3. Big business deserves as much skepticism as big government.
4. Culture is more important than politics and economics.
5. A conservatism that does not practice restraint, humility, and good stewardship—especially of the natural world—is not fundamentally conservative.
6. Small, Local, Old, and Particular are almost always better than Big, Global, New, and Abstract.
7. Beauty is more important than efficiency.
8. The relentlessness of media-driven pop culture deadens our senses to authentic truth, beauty, and wisdom.
9. We share Russell Kirk’s conviction that “the institution most essential to conserve is the family.”
10. Politics and economics won’t save us; if our culture is to be saved at all, it will be by faithfully living by the Permanent Things, conserving these ancient moral truths in the choices we make in our everyday lives.

    My interview on the Freebirth Society Podcast is up on my blog.
Here I am at 41 weeks pregnant with Benjamin. His cousin Dylan was napping while I dozed and sipped raspberry leaf tea.
Cut and paste this link to listen to the podcast or buy one of my childbirth books: These books were lovingly crafted for those couples searching for alternatives to hospital childbirth.
