The Radical Error of Our Time

Egalitarianism is the radical error of our time.  If we do not attack it at the root, we will find we have nothing of cultural or spiritual value left to conserve.
The position of the conservative, whether liberal in his politics or otherwise, presumes inequality.  A man ought to love his homeland more than he loves another, so he defends against its demise.  Certain works of culture are better than others and command our special care.
When we love with a grateful heart, the image of God in us shines most clearly.  By gratitude the creature resembles the Creator, who gives freely across an infinite abyss
