Online Society, Offline Civilization: How the Internet is Ushering in the End of the...

This is why C. S. Lewis said, “Sex is not messed up because it was put in the closet; it was put in the closet because it was messed up.” The Internet throws the closet of man open in a way it has never been — and never should be. And it’s no exaggeration to say that the demons released are destroying civilization. As British philosopher Edmund Burke warned, “It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters.” The young today are immersed in a virtual world in which coarseness, nastiness, decadence, perversion, superficiality, egoism and nihilism are the norm. They are instilled with moral relativism’s only guide, “If it feels good, do it,” and then their feelings are twisted in the worst possible way, through vile entertainment, so that what feels good is cultural poison. The result is that we are breeding barbarians wholly incapable of sustaining a healthy constitutional republic. -- Selwyn Duke
