It will either usher in a new birth of Freedom, or a great Tyranny. Either way, I hope it happens in my lifetime and not my children’s.

Tyranny is on its way!
So then, how do we come to terms with the conceptual errors of our times? One way might be to try to understand how and where freedom fits into the hierarchy of the good, avoiding the widespread abuse of the word "freedom" (to the point of its becoming an anti-concept) and asking how freedom relates to other good things, what gives it substance, and what makes it good? Hopefully this can help us differentiate genuine freedom from the perilous idolatry of the Autonomous Self, and to recognize the contradictions in the latter that have us tied up in knots in the "real world" while the culture is enslaved to unseen manipulators.
