The Terrorists Have Already Won

Once in a while, I come across an article so poignant, and that resonates so strongly with me, that I must share it at length. Such was the case upon my reading of “Terror and the Teddy Bear Society” by a British physician named Anthony Daniels, who often publishes commentary online under the pseudonym “Theodore Dalrymple.”

I read the Dalrymple piece and was tremendously impressed by it as well.

As much as our modern relativistic culture likes to look down on earlier epochs, like the American Frontier or the Crusades, those people understood something that we seem to have forgotten — namely, that civilization is not a natural state, that it must be established with vigor and, at times, defended with urgency.
