Sage McLaughlin

Sage McLaughlin is a Southern-born Irish-Ashkenazi Catholic with no accent. He is also a chastened one-time libertarian whose whole outlook on the right ordering of social life might be said to begin with G.K. Chesteron’s observation that, “Man’s most pragmatic need is to be something more than a pragmatist.” His concern for the fate of Christendom imposes on him the duty to proclaim the truth amidst this present endarkenment, as well as to recall the things of beauty and wisdom which are the inheritance of every Man of the West.

Mr. McLaughlin’s professional calling as a teacher is, as yet, unrealized. He is a wanderer whose stops over the last decade and a half have included Indianapolis, Denver, Charlotte, Washington, DC, and Columbia, SC. His vocation as a husband and father has slowed his wandering and inspired a more devoted interest in productive hobbies such as cooking and wine collecting (as opposed to the unproductive kind, which has in the past included Uzbek and Azeri language, and the authoring of unpublished works of fiction). His other interests include geography, competitive card games, and Irish folk music.

Mr. McLaughlin is cantankerous, argumentative, and lazy. He holds a B.A. with High Distinction in History from Indiana University, an M.S. in Defense and Strategic Studies from Missouri State University, and an M.S. in Geographic and Cartographic Science from George Mason University.
