Civilization, in every generation, must be defended from barbarians.
The barbarians outside the gate, the barbarians inside the gate, and the barbarian in the mirror...
Intellect: “Color is by convention, sweet by convention, bitter by convention; in truth there are but atoms and the void.”Senses: “Wretched mind, from us you are taking the evidence by which you would overthrow us? Your victory is your own fall.”
It's pretty depressing that our civilization's philosophical sophistication has gone backwards since the time of Democritus.... And I thought it was conservatives who wanted to "turn back the clock"!
