I am preparing a set of musings that includes the BEST explanation of Original Sin ever. In the meantime, I thought you might like to know that even the cultural harridans – the folks who with their “enlightenment” and “sophistication” and “smart diplomacy” have brought us to the cliff of global war and economic collapse – are starting to sniff something unnerving in the air.
This column was printed in the New York Times – and it is something I could have written. When I first saw the headline, I thought it might be another marvelous article by Mark Mallett. Methinks they are starting to wonder if maybe, just maybe, their brilliant plans and schemes might just be a little off-target. Not to worry, for most it will take full-scale rioting in the streets and bombs bursting in air everywhere to get them to think maybe they should have thought this out a little. But hey, that would require them to take time out from figuring out their next move in trying to force nuns to pay for everyone’s birth control and abortions.
Here then, Roger Cohen, perhaps the first establishment media columnist to whiff the smell of cultural smoke in the air.
