Depressing but well stated.
"There is a great sickness in California, home of the greatest number
of American billionaires and poor people, land of the highest taxes and
about the worst schools and roads in the nation."
"The illness is a new secular religion
far more zealous and intolerant than the pre-Reformation zealotry of
the Church. Modern elite liberalism is based on the simple creed that
one’s affluence and education, one’s coolness and zip code, should
shield him from the consequences of one’s bankrupt thoughts that he
inflicts on others. We are a state run by dead souls who square the
circle of their own privilege, who seek meaning in rather selfish lives,
always at someone else’s expense."
"It is that simple — that pernicious."
