Dennis Prager writes:

“Same-sex marriage is the only social movement to break entirely with the past, to create a moral ideal never before conceived. . .. After all, you need a lot of self-esteem to hold yourself morally superior to all those who preceded you.”

Dennis Prager doesn’t get it. To wipe out the accumulated social knowledge of the past is the goal of totalitarianism, not an incidental byproduct. That is what makes it so irresistible. Few people, it turns out, can pass up the opportunity to style themselves morally superior to every person who has ever lived.
