    It takes a lot to build a civilization, and though it is much easier to destroy a civilization, it takes a lot to do that, too.

    But now we have four roots of evil that are guaranteed to do so.

    More entailed explanations at the Link...

    No. 1: Victimhood.
    The first is victimhood. The more people who regard themselves as victims — as individuals or as a group — the more likely they are to commit evil. People who think of themselves as victims feel that, having been victimized, they are no longer bound by normal moral conventions — especially the moral conventions of their alleged or real oppressors.

    No. 2: Demonization.

    The second of the four ingredients of this civilization-destroying witches’ brew is demonization — demonizing a group as inherently evil.

    No. 3: A Cause To Believe In.

    Most Americans throughout American history found great meaning in being American and in being religious — usually Christian. Since World War II, we have lived in a post-Christian, post-nationalist age. Until very recently, Americans would have found the expression “for God and country” deeply meaningful; that term today, on the left, is risible and execrable.

    No. 4: Lies.

    The fourth and most important ingredient necessary for evil is lies. Lies are the root of evil. Ironically, slavery itself was made possible only because of the lie that the black was inferior to the white. Nazism was made possible thanks to the lie that Jews were not fully human. And communism was built on lies. Lenin, the father of Soviet Communism, named the Soviet communist newspaper “Truth” (“Pravda”) because truth was what the Communist Party said it was.

    The New York Times, CNN and the rest of the mainstream “news” media are becoming our version of Pravda.

    Wow! That sounds like it is straight from the Saul Alinsky playbook.

    This is the cornerstone of the effort to destroy our civilization - the absence of objectivity. Always enjoy Prager's stuff.

    "Objective truth doesn’t exist on the left.."

    There is more truth available now via the internet than there has ever been available to the average person in all of America's history. In the past we generally only knew of the evil we personally saw or read about in the local papers . Now the crooked politician or government official in N.Y. is known about in Idaho. To me this is a hopeful sign.
