“Unmanned Drones”

Mark Steyn says it all. Here are some clips:

The difference is that Islam thinks our technological superiority doesn’t matter – because we’re unmanned drones in a more basic sense: we believe in nothing except the most transitory and dreary self-gratification, an endless adolescence that begins with a push-up bra at eight and continues through free government condoms for 30-year olds. Not only do the surging Muslim populations in European cities have no wish to “assimilate” with such a culture, they do not believe they will have to – for they have bet that such a society cannot survive.

 A hyper-sexualized society becomes, paradoxically, sexless, and certainly joyless. Listening in recent weeks to young women in both New York and London complain that the men they meet would rather look at pictures of them naked on the Internet than actually see them naked in the same room reminded me of The Children Of Men, in which P D James’ characters, liberated from human fertility, find sex too much trouble.

Because, getting on for half-a-century in, there’s not a lot of cool left in the Sexual Revolution.

That last line reminds me of an encounter with some skaters here in Sparta. Some young people are beginning to wake up to how they have been used and abused by people wanting to give them “freedom” to do what ever they want to.
