In a daily article at the First Things website announcing the March issue, Stefan McDaniel describes one of the articles (not available right now without a subscription):
In â€œWhile Europe Slept,â€ for instance, Jean Bethke Elsthain warns us that a rough beast is growing in the womb of European nihilism: â€œEvil need not take the form of the Hitlerian monster of Europeâ€™s past or the serial killers of contemporary movies. . . . Evil can take the form of refusing to be what one is. The retreat from defining Europe in relation to her Jewish and Christian heritage is the face of European nihilism. When a reaction comes, it is likely to be extreme and distorted because indifference prevailed too long.â€
And I have often said that Europe’s last dream is to drag America down into death with it, like the suicidal mother who believes that her children must die along with her.
