CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 27, 2023
A TREMENDOUS OPINION PIECE BY GERRY BAKER IN WEDNESDAY’S WALL STREET JOURNAL TITLED “THE NEW MORAL ORDER IS ALREADY CRUMBLING” IS MUST READING. HERE’S AN EXCERPT.
“This new edifice has been built around three principal pillars: First, the ethical primacy of global obligation over national self-interest, in economic and geopolitical terms, but most directly and consequentially in a rejection of the morality of national borders and an embrace of something like open-door immigration. Second, a quasi-biblical belief in climate catastrophism, in which man’s essential energy-consuming sinfulness can be expiated only by massive sacrifice of economic progress. Third, a wholesale cultural self-cancellation in which the virtues, values and historic achievements of traditional civilization are rejected and replaced by a cultural hierarchy that inverts old prejudices and obliges the class of white, male heterosexuals to acknowledge their history of exploitation and submit to comprehensive social and economic reparation.
This fall, throughout the West, on three continents, each of these three pillars is crumbling,”
AGAIN, GERRY BAKER OF THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. I’M CAL THOMAS.
