‘Are We Encouraging Insanity?’

See the source image

R.J. Rushdoony was asking this question in the 1980s and 90s, before we had anything like “transgender” to contend with–to say nothing of “world is gonna end!” climate change, or a “Green New Deal.”

This essay can be found in a collection, Our Threatened Freedom, published in 2015 and featuring some nooze gems that will tax your power to believe it. Like the four or five full-time agents assigned to bust a little boy who was selling fishing worms without a license. I helped edit the book, and wrote the cover blurb, so I take an interest in it.

Meanwhile, I think the answer to Rushdoony’s question is, “You bet we are–and you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”

    How refreshing to hear Rushdoony again – makes me want to get out my shoe boxes full of his cassette tapes and listen to them all over again. I would be very interested in how Rushdoony would frame today’s current slide into debauchery and degradation. On the other hand, I am glad he is in heaven with Jesus having finished his course here on earth.
