A generation – and a nation – betrayed

Oh, Albion! What have you done?

My heart breaks.

Author: The Anglophilic Anglican

I am an ordained Anglican clergyman, published writer, former op-ed columnist, and experienced outdoor and informal educator. I am also a traditionalist: religiously, philosophically, politically, and socially. I seek to do my bit to promote and restore the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, in a world which has too-often lost touch with all three, and to help re-weave the connections between God, Nature, and humankind which our techno-industrial civilization has strained and broken.

  1. While it doesn’t explain all of this, I place much of the blame on the feminization of our culture. Previously, there was a healthy balance between the masculine and the feminine characteristics developed over thousands of years, but no more. The push to reverse perceived “unfairness” and “inequality” has destroyed the protective instinct that a healthy people have and cherish. We have lost the instinct that alerted us to a threat that the masculine characteristics provided. We will pay dearly for that loss.

    1. I think you are quite correct, Stephen. It does not explain the situation in toto, but it is certainly a factor. And there has certainly been a massive pendulum-swing in the direction of feminization (which, ironically, has little or nothing to do with authentic femininity) over the last 50 years or so.

      It also has to do, I think, with a loss of a proper sense of balance, the “Golden Mean” as the classical world put it, in which virtue was found between the extremes of excess and deficit. Too little compassion can certainly be a vice. But so can too much, particularly if it’s directed inappropriately, and particularly if it puts one’s own people at risk!
