Over at my old stomping ground, The Wanderer, there is a good piece by Chris Montesano which uses as its springboard the shooting at the school in Florida. Along the way he quoted Book IX of Plato’s Republic:
“The teacher fears and panders to his pupils, who in turn despise their teachers and attendants; and the young as a whole imitate their elders, argue with them and set themselves up against them, while their elders try to avoid the reputation of being disagreeable or strict by aping the young and mixing with them on terms of easy good fellowship.”
Doesn’t that sound like the modern and modernist church these days? Substitute some terms.
The fruits of dumbing everything down, down, ever down.
