“Each new generation born is in effect an invasion of civilization by little barbarians, who must be civilized before it is too late.” ~ Thomas Sowell in his 1987 book A Conflict of Visions.
The little barbarians came of age decades ago and they are clueless about the workings of civilization. They have cornered key positions in the government, corporations, media, and the institutions of arts and entertainment. They have developed an exaggerated sense of their own importance. They have procreated another gang of little barbarians. Now there is no one left to stop these barbarians from causing mindless destruction.
