Frits Albers (RIP) Wrote in Five Smooth Stones:
Evolution has failed. It has failed modern man. It has failed the modern scientist, the modernist Priest, the Teilhard de Chardin Nun, the liberal bishop, the biased college professor, the liberated women, the marxist social worker, the humanist catechist, the secular politician.
“Through means of psychological behaviourism, man is left with nothing that transcends his experiences. He has no values left and no morals, and his life becomes sheer practice without theory. But he consoles himself with the thought that life should be experimental. Modern man feels he should try all ideas since he will acknowledge no basis or yardstick by which to evaluate any idea, except trial and error which is strictly groping in the dark, which makes him essentially an irrational animal let loose in nature. In net: modern man is pathetically susceptible to making all the mistakes of these who went before him simply because he does not know enough history, enough tested principles, enough religion….”
(John N. Moore, Ed.D., in “Neo-Darwinism and Society” paraphrasing Prof. Richard Weaver’s book “Ideas Have Consequences“)
A man without a philosophy worthy of that name; without training in thinking: a man without the discipline of the mind…. A man without the proper foundation on which a supernatural edifice of Faith can be built. An irrational animal no longer chiming in with Revelation. Or differently put by a man who should know:
“I am baffled by the way people still speak of the West as if it were at least a cultural unity against communism. But the West is divided, not only politically, but by an invisible cleavage. On one side are the voiceless masses with their own subdivisions and fractures. On the other side is the enligh-tened, articulate elite which to one degree or other has rejected the religious roots of the civilization ‑ the roots without which it is no longer Western civilization, but a new order of beliefs, attitudes and mandates. In short, this is the order of which communism is one logical expression. Not originating in Russia, but in the cultural capitals of the West, reaching Russia by clandestine delivery via the old underground centres in Cracow, Vienna, Berne, Zurich and Geneva. It is a Western body of beliefs that now threatens the West from-Russia. As a body of Western beliefs: secular, materialistic, and rationalistic, the intelligentsia of the West share it, and are therefore always committed to a secret, emotional complicity with communism, of which they dislike, not the communism, but only what, by chance of history, Russia has specially added to it: slave-labour camps, purges, MVD et alia. And that, not because the Western intellectuals find them unjustifiable, but because they are afraid of being caught in them. If they could have communism without the brutalities of overlording that the Russian experience bred, they have only marginal objections. Why should they object? What else is Socialism but Communism with the claws retracted? (Note retracted, not removed).”
(Whittaker Chambers, in ‘COLD FRIDAY’, 1964, pp. 225, 226).
Yes, evolution has failed both modern man and modern woman. It has taken from the West any ideological weapon against the advancement of a new collec-tivism (totalitarianism) depriving the West of its wealth.
