Cut Off From Reality

"Paul Johnson, in his searing book on liberal leftist intellectuals, notes the intellectuals cut off from the life-giving nourishment of an organic, religious, traditional culture and community, are cut off from reality, floating into the ether of abstraction. To fill the empty void within themselves, they dream of power and its attainment through advancing their ideas. Our American college campuses are suffering atrociously today from the takeover of the tenured radicals who in their youth unleashed a convulsive social revolution during the sixties which has left American society in moral shambles."
~ Alphonse Vinh
