Launched in 2009, Intellectual Takeout has grown to become a popular refuge for rational discourse as well as challenging the intellectual and secular orthodoxies of our times. The vast majority of our readers are young Americans of Generations Y and Z.
In 2018, our 501(c)(3) non-profit entity was renamed from “Intellectual Takeout” to “The Charlemagne Institute”, while maintaining the Intellectual Takeout website and social media network as a program underneath the Charlemagne umbrella. We saw the change as necessary in order to counter the cultural sea-change shaking apart America. The Charlemagne Institute represents the strategic vision while Intellectual Takeout is one of several tactics we use to convey the Judeo-Christian, Greco-Roman principles and traditions of Western Civilization.
Each day, our team writes and publishes 5-8 new articles and then shares them through social media networks like Facebook where we have nearly 700,000 followers as well as our daily digest e-mail program which has nearly 75,000 e-mail subscribers.
Intellectual Takeout covers a very wide variety of topics linking metaphysics to daily life, culture, and politics. In general, we focus on three areas:
(1) Challenging today’s cultural and secular orthodoxies,
(2) Reaffirming the Greco-Roman tradition of First Things and objective truths, and...
(3) Acknowledging the role of the Judeo-Christian tradition in shaping the values, principles, and traditions of Western Civilization.
Every week we receive wonderful feedback from our readers. Such notes and e-mails help us continue to hone and improve our work, while also revealing the impact it is having on the culture.
