"In our society, there is a climate of tolerance and being accustomed to ethically reprehensible, if not outright illegal, behaviour, to huge conflict of interests, to sudden and shameless enrichment,"
"There is a moral crisis: the cunning must not prevail"Romano Prodi’s lecture about people going about the immorally black art of making money reminds me of a certain book introduction which appeared recently:
“Liberals love to boast that they are not ‘religious,’ which is what one would expect to hear from the state-sanctioned religion. Of course liberalism is a religion. It has its own cosmology, its own miracles, its own beliefs in the supernatural, its own churches, its own high priests, its own saints, its own total worldview, and its own explanation of the existence of the universe. In other words, liberalism contains all the attributes of what is generally known as ‘religion.’ ”It is in fact a religion of leftist statism where the high priest of the academy may incite violence, and irresponsibly hand blame to any notion they can’t comprehend.the fuse is lit!
