The Thinking 

A Society of Pervasive Insanity

THE REV. James Jackson writes:

Here is a good quote by Walker Percy which describes the horror and evil of Sandy Hook:

“I am perfectly willing to believe Flannery O’Connor when she said, and she wasn’t kidding, that the modern world is a territory largely occupied by the devil. No one doubts the malevolence abroad in the world. But the world is also deranged. What interests me is not the malevolence of man — so what else is new? — but his looniness. The looniness, that is to say, of the “normal” denizen of the Western world who, I think it fair to say, doesn’t know who he is, what he believes, or what he is doing.”
