“When man loses sight of his moral ends, his degradation commences.” Russell Kirk

2016, the struggle to sustain the permanent things never ceases.

“The greatest happiness of the greatest number ... has come to mean the greatest idleness of the largest possible population. ...The populace is manipulated by the press, closed with every variety of superstition, bullied by the advertiser and propagandist. …Social radicalism is in the American’s blood, although because of his individualism and rough comradeship, it will take some hammering to drive a coddling socialism into America. … After World War I, America still can’t shake three social impulses that conservatives detest:  the conversion of political power to the ends of a leveling humanitarianism, the development of a new and complex American imperialism, and the infection of all segments of society by a gross hedonism.”  George Santayana

George Orwell describes “the classes and occupations from which the managers and planners of the new absolute state are being recruited: bureaucrats, scientists, technicians, trade-union organizers, publicity experts, sociologists, teachers, journalists, and professional politicians.”

“When man loses sight of his moral ends, his degradation commences.”  Russell Kirk
