It is with considerable sadness that we report the passing of Lawrence Auster. The US traditionalist conservative essayist and prolific blogger surrendered into the Lord’s hands after a three year battle with pancreatic cancer.
Auster challenged liberalism on all of its conceited assumptions about the nature of man and society; in his speeches and writing, he spoke a truth no mainstream conservative would dare even think, for losing the electoral support of the ever-leftward drifting “centre”; he refused to buckle to the progressive trends of postmodern anti-society; but never fell into the dark and nebulous quagmire of bitterness and hate. May his soul rest in peace and may we follow in his example.
The Requiem Mass is scheduled for 1 p.m. Tuesday 2 April, at the Church of St. Michael the Archangel, located at Holy Cross Catholic Church, 140 E. Mount Airy Avenue, Philadelphia PA. For updates and on the Mass, see the View from the Right page.
