Awakening from nihilism - Michael Novak
An article from First Things

'One principle that today's intellectuals most passionately disseminate is vulgar relativism, "nihilism with a happy face."

'Freedom cannot grow-it cannot even survive-in every atmosphere or clime. In the wearying journey of human history, free societies have been astonishingly rare. The ecology of liberty is more fragile than the biosphere of Earth.'
