If there is one thing I could get people to read to understand our situation, it would be the essay “Willing Slaves of the Welfare State” by C. S. Lewis.
The new Christmas horror-comedy Silent Night offers a shrewd indictment of both mindless secularism and authoritarian science.
“I dread government in the name of science,” C. S. Lewis wrote in 1958. “That is how tyrannies come in.”
“Natural selection” is like a Swiss Army knife that researchers in widely different disciplines use to solve their problems.
This essay has argued that Lewis was prophetic as regards the advent of techniques powerful enough to bring about the effects he feared.
