Someone clearly peed in Salim Mansur's cornflakes this morning:
This is the great liberal death wish, a twisted psychology of that intellectual class which willingly goes out to buy the lies of a culture that entombs freedom, as was done in the Soviet Union -- and continues in places such as China and Saudi Arabia -- and fashion these lies as a cure for manufactured ills in the West, with the purpose of undermining it.
The occasion behind this grim outburst? The 38th birthday of Malcolm Muggeridge's 1970 essay, "The Great Liberal Death Wish"!
Odd that a doomed ideology such as Liberalism should take so long to pass away, like a bad actor in a cheap movie endlessly stretching out their death scene. I guess the final throes must be coming any time now.
