|C. S. Lewis|
…the uncritical acceptance of the intellectual climate common [groupthink] to our own age and the assumption that whatever has gone out of date is on that account discredited…Similar to what Professor Gordon S. Wood has lately noted:
"much of their history is fragmentary and essentially anachronistic—condemning the past for not being more like the present."Moderns: mortally infected with narcissism and intellectual blindness/dishonesty brought on by their own self-proclaimed moral superiority; and that being born of their own insecurity.
