Final Word from Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Yesterday's Final Word about the need to beware the economists was a bit tongue-incheek,but it touched on the most serious issue of our time: The impending death ofJudeo-Christian thought. The problems of the West might be most visible today interms of the economic difficulties of Greece, Italy and the U.S., but it is our civilizedway of thinking that is actually most in peril. If the problem were only economic,a solution could be found. Instead, we have become incapable of judging - and actingaccordingly - not only when our bad civilizational attributes (such as corruption)have become our deadly enemy, but also when our positive attributes (such as compassion)have as well. This is so critical because the next phase in our civilizationwill not be civilized at all, even if the ungodly methods imposed in the future byour leaders are thrust upon us in the name of preserving our Judeo-Christian values.
