Quote Of The Day

or longer…

(courtesy of Cold Fury)

Malcolm Muggeridge:

The process of death wishing, in the guise of liberalism, has been eroding the civilization of the West for a century and more, and now would seem to be about to reach its apogee. The Liberal mind, effective everywhere, whether in power or in opposition, has provided the perfect instrument. Systematically, stage by stage, dismantling our Western way of life, depreciating and deprecating all its values so that the whole social structure is now tumbling down, dethroning its God, undermining all its certainties. And all this, wonderfully enough, in the name of the health, wealth and happiness of all mankind. Previous civilizations have been overthrown from without by the incursion of barbarian hordes; ours has dreamed up its own dissolution in the minds of its own intellectual elite. Not Bolshevism, which Stalin liquidated along with all the old Bolsheviks; not Nazism, which perished with Hitler in his Berlin bunker; not Fascism, which was left hanging upside down from a lamp-post along with Mussolini and his mistress – none of these, history will record, was responsible for bringing down the darkness of our civilization, but Liberalism. A solvent rather than a precipitate, a sedative rather than a stimulant, a slough rather than a precipice; blurring the edges of truth, the definition of virtue, the shape of beauty; a cracked bell, a mist, a death wish…

Via Barnhardt and WRSA.

My only edit (and I’m ashamed ‘editing’ Mr. Muggeridge), would be changing liberalism to progressivism (or perhaps Fabianism?).

  1. “Fabianism” – I had to look that one up. Same letfitst mindset that feels giving stuff away via the govt is good.

    Forgeting of course, that ANYTHING the govt gives you was taken by force from someone else.
