Image of a dead country

Lawrence Auster, Image of a dead country
Face it, folks: this is what we have become in response to the September 11, 2001 Muslim terrorist attack on America: a humiliated, defeated, and despicable people that accepts its humiliation and defeat. Not a single prominent figure or institution or political movement in our country protests this self-humiliation, because the only alternative to humiliating ourselves would be to profile Muslims, and that would violate our highest principle, which is non-discrimination toward whatever is most alien and hostile to ourselves.
Sam Harris wrote in defense of profiling, but generally Auster is right.

File under: flatlining.
