Ragin' Dave's Quote of the Day, Naming the Evil edition

John C. Wright, found over at Vox Populi:

In sum, their philosophy consists of the single principle that no philosophy is valid. Their ethics consist of a single precept that making ethical judgments is ‘judgmental’ that is, ethically wrong. Their economic theory, socialism, consists of an arrogant denial that the laws of economics apply to economic phenomena. Their theory of psychology says that men do not have free will, because cause and effect is absolute; their theory of metaphysics is that subatomic particles do have free will, because cause and effect is statistical, approximate, uncertain, incomplete, and illusory. And on and on. All their thought is one self-refuting statement after another.

Philosophically, theologically and morally, the modern mindset is an end-state. Once a man has utterly rejected reason, he cannot reason himself to another conclusion. Once he has rejected morality, he has no sense of honor to compel him to live up to a philosophy more demanding than narrow selfishness.
If that doesn't sum up the Obamanation, I don't know what does.  And it certainly nails the type of people who fill my current cesspool living space of Los Angeles.

Read the whole thing, and Vox's commentary on it as well.  In order to defeat the enemy, you must know the enemy.
