A World Without Hope

. . .I’ve written recently that our schools introduce young people not to that guide of intelligence and beauty, Lady Faith, but to her current impostor, Politics. Our “sins” are political, & we are to be “saved” by giving our assent to the Right Things about sex & marriage, climatic changes, organic food, the evil of Christian history, the sweet wonders of Islamic history, & so forth, till the world shall end & we can have done with it, amen. . .
