Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline
Publication Date: June 1997
In this New York Times bestselling book, Robert H. Bork, our country’s most distinguished conservative scholar, offers a prophetic and unprecedented view of a culture in decline, a nation in such serious moral trouble that its very foundation is crumbling: a nation that slouches not towards the Bethlehem envisioned by the poet Yeats in 1919, but towards Gomorrah.
Slouching Towards Gomorrah is a penetrating, devastatingly insightful exposé of a country in crisis at the end of the millennium, where the rise of modern liberalism, which stresses the dual forces of radical egalitarianism (the equality of outcomes rather than opportunities) and radical individualism (the drastic reduction of limits to personal gratification), has undermined our culture, our intellect, and our morality.
Robert H. Bork sounds a very sobering alarm. We can accept our fate and try to insulate ourselves from the effects of a degenerating culture, or we can choose to halt the beast, to oppose modern liberalism in every arena. In the view of Robert Bork, an understanding of our problem and the will to resist may be our only hope.
It’s a very tough read, but well worth it.
I also just found this:
Viewing it now.
Cute? Did you actually look above the boob line? Yuck. And the boobs are fake.
There are three dangers in that proposal, for conservatives, that need to be pointed out:
I suggest thinking of ways that your aim be achieved outside of the government. Otherwise, you'll wind up in the same spot that that retired teacher finds herself in.
Maybe. America used to have laws governing obscenity in all it’s forms until 40 or so years ago, and the country managed to survive.
Could be serious. If they cannot exercise, San Francisco may slide into the ocean.
A point to mull over: Did America have dominant and self-perpetuating cliques in the popular arts who would have a huge score to settle if the law clamped down on them?
It's not that hard to guess what would happen:
Come to think of it, liberal bias in 1960s news wasn't stopped at all by those laws - nor by the Fairness Doctrine, either.
And the boobs are fake. Does it matter?
I said “use.” The GOP sets up such disastrous avenues for ruthless Democrat control in part because it never imagines anyone but itself using those avenues.
Free Speech can be used in the “informal war against filthy words”. It used to be that you could call a pornographer a filth peddler and you didn’t have to worry about the SPLC calling you this-phobic of a that-phobic...
Restore free speech and end “Politikal Korrectness” and make it socially acceptable to call filth filth.
No kidding! I try to make that point to idiot liberals. They brag about "speaking truth to power". Then what do they do? Try to make that power even more powerful. But it goes right over their heads.
This sleepless "hand-wringing," being described, is only one of a vast array of symptoms.
For laughs, ask one of the dear souls to explain why Obama is important to them? You will find only confirmation of my hypothesis.
Good point! Sure it can - and the First Amendment does protect your right to call it as you see it.
When I was writing my warnings above, I actually had the SPLC in the back of my mind. Thankfully, that organization can only smear as of now: it has no legal instruments (that I'm aware of) to punish frankness through the government. But given how they've been acting, they wouldn't hesitate to "advise" any Ministry of Decency.
