Quote of the Day

Certainly, by the last decade of the [20th] century, some lessons had plainly been learned.  But it was not yet clear whether the underlying evils which had made possible its catastrophic failures and tragedies—the rise of moral relativism, the decline of personal responsibility, the repudiation of Judeo-Christian values, not least the arrogant belief that men and women could solve all the mysteries of the universe by their own intellects—were in the process of being eradicated.  On that would depend the chances of the twenty-first century becoming, by contrast, an age of hope for mankind.

Paul Johson in Modern Times (revised 1991 edition)
