Appeasing Ourselves into Oblivion

“Appeasement is a vote to live in the present tense, to hold the comforts of the moment. To fight for king and country is to fight for the future. But a barren society has no future, and so what’s to fight for?” – (Mark Steyn, America Alone, p.37)

I’ve been saying this for years, except Mr. Steyn does it much better with much fewer words.

King and Country implies that you actually care how the country turns out for your children. But if you’re just in it for the orgasm, well, it kind of explains why we are in the wasteland we’re in today, dontit?
