Tradition does not mean that the living are dead, it means that the dead are living.

G.K. Chesterton

Ah, but the absence of tradition does mean that the living are dead.  Just look around.  If only modern liberalism could understand this.  But alas, this is but one of their most egregious mistakes and one of the most costly as well.

Be clear about this: when tradition is shunned, or destroyed – chaos ensues, division and hostility too.  Indeed, the modern liberal will do anything to expunge tradition from a culture.  How else might a minority seize control over the many?

Think about it.  Why is tradition a target?  And what takes its place?
