VDH: The Cruel Progressive Creed Undoing Civilization

The prescient Victor Davis Hansen, writing at American GreatnessThe Cruel Progressive Creed Undoing Civilization. A quote from Hansen’s essay:

“As a general rule, anytime anyone anywhere announces that he has a master plan to reorder society and “fundamentally transform” or “reset” it by creating larger government, more rules, and an elite hierarchy to oversee compliance for the recalcitrant, then run.

In addition to militarizing its frontier with India, China is reasserting its maximalist claims to the South China Sea, ending independence and crushing democracy in Hong Kong, continuing cultural genocide against the Uyghurs, and regularly sending swarms of warplanes toward Taiwan to transmit the message to Taipei that annexation is but a matter of time.”
