In order to fight evil, we have to admit that evil exists. In a society that is fraught with "root causes" and looks for excuses rather than solutions, I do worry.

Very, very much.

The great danger of the present age is that democracy may never again marshal the will to march against and ultimately destroy evil.

I think, and I definitely hope that VDH is wrong on this score. Democracy will take a lot of abuse, much more than it ever should, but it can only be pushed so far. One too many 9/11-type events and democracy will take the gloves off, and what happens next won't be pretty for anybody.

Nice blog you have going btw. The John Stuart Mill quotation attracted me, JSM being my favorite philosopher (I'm Utilitarian all the way), and that particular quote of his my favorite. I think I'll add you to my blogroll.
