“We make men without chests and we expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and we are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful."- C.S. Lewis in The Abolition of Man

Liberal Political Philosophy
James Lewis nails the whole philosophy of the Obama Administration in the title of his article on Pajamas Media:
