Immodest Proposals

In last week´s Takimag column, Theodore Dalrymple lets loose on another immoral, perverted, and absurd suggestion by the typical post-modern academic radical, who has designated himself as our enlightened savior from such old fashioned taboos as cannibalism.

The common factor that unites the proposals to reduce the voting age to 6 and to eat the dead, and the ruling of the French court, is education. No uneducated person would have proposed reducing the voting age or eating the dead, or succumbed to the argumentation that was no doubt put before the French court. You need a refined intelligence—refined in a certain way, that is—to be so silly.
