IDEAS HAVE CONSEQUENCES

An historical, social and moral examination of the modern world facing disorder and disintegration -- our cultural decline a fact demonstrated by excesses of sentimentality, of brutality; in the obsession for matters scientific; in obliteration of class distinctions; in the cult of soft living; in the abhorrence of discipline, and so on. Remedial measures involve the restoration of piety and justice, of language as a means of communication, of the retention of private property, independence...A thoughtful, disturbed, and disturbing analysis, which cannot be taken lightly. Not another Hayek- but for a more critical, rather than reactionary, audience.
