No kidding. Especially with all our top best jobs being given away to the criminal thief looter nation of India.
“They are exceedingly nice, pleasant, trustworthy, mostly honest, well-intentioned, and utterly decent. But their brains are largely empty, devoid of any substantial knowledge that might be the fruits of an education in an inheritance and a gift of a previous generation. They are the culmination of western civilization, a civilization that has forgotten nearly everything about itself, and as a result, has achieved near-perfect indifference to its own culture.”
Deneen accurately diagnoses the problem: that schools today no longer seek to initiate students into a particular tradition, their tradition:
“But ask them some basic questions about the civilization they will be inheriting, and be prepared for averted eyes and somewhat panicked looks. Who fought in the Peloponnesian War? Who taught Plato, and whom did Plato teach? How did Socrates die? Raise your hand if you have read both the Iliad and the Odyssey. The Canterbury Tales? Paradise Lost? The Inferno?”
Yep. And foreign enemies sense weakness and stupidity and are moving in for the cultural kill so to speak. Indian Mafia and other countries want our companies, our jobs, our industry, and ultimately our land. The signs are everywhere and visible.
It must be nice to have the greatest civilization in history handed to you on a silver platter for free.
