I decided to post a link to this column by Nicholas Farrell at Takimag for this line alone. A brilliant insight, indeed.
The piece concerns the absurdity of the modern DWI law, with a side order of the venality of the "rehabilitation" racket in the criminal justice systems of the West. Farrell shrewdly calls it for what it is-- reeducation.
The communists were defeated abroad (we are told), yet within the host states of the West they have won. Yes, they have won by sucking the lifeblood of freedom out of their hosts. They now dominate Boards of Education, City Councils, universities, social programs, Congresses and White Houses.
I can just imagine General Washington crossing the Delaware, undoubtedly praying that maybe one day the new nation he hoped to deliver would be able to spy on its citizens, arbitrarily arrest and imprison them, and kill 4,000 babies every day-- all in the noble mission to ensure that two men would be able to commit sodomy and call it marriage.
