From the land where consent is the sole criterion of the good.
When a civilization built on this flimsy moral foundation–obsessed with “subsidiarity” and heedless of the solidarity and the common good–finally collapses under its own weight, the Strong Man at length arises who asks, “What’s so sacred about consent anyway? The strong do as they please and the weak suffer what they must.”
The only way to avoid being suckered by him will be the old counsel: “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children and to all that are far off, every one whom the Lord our God calls to him. Save yourselves from this crooked generation.”
