“The paths of political correctness and conformity lead to terrible places in culture,” Erick Erickson of Red State wrote this past week:

 Francis Schaeffer, the theologian, wrote a remarkable book called The God Who is There in 1968.

Just imagine the culture of both nations in the coming years. Or as Mark Steyn wrote in After America, “Look around you. From now on, it gets worse:”

In ten years’ time, there will be no American Dream, any more than there’s a Greek or Portuguese Dream. In twenty, you’ll be living the American Nightmare, with large tracts of the country reduced to the favelas of Latin America, the rich fleeing for Bermuda or New Zealand or wherever on the planet they can buy a little time, and the rest trapped in the impoverished, violent, diseased ruins of utopian vanity.

Surrounded by people with no sense of history, who think that Israel is the second coming of the Third Reich.

Or as Victor Davis Hanson asks today, “Are the Orcs Winning?”
