Kristor on Modern Rebellion

On View from the Right, Kristor has an interesting piece on the origins of adolescent rebellion in a post-Christian (post-religious) society, where the normal adolescent realization that all is not well in the world encounters a society that offers no credible answers. In traditional, healthy societies, such adolescents grow into maturity by acquiring their society’s traditional wisdom, which is the accumulated insight of generations with regard to man’s basic problems. In fractured, revolutionary societies, however, these young seekers after truth and wholeness find nothing but answers that their elders no longer believe. Thus, they turn to fads and gurus—or worse. Read the thread in “The Genesis of Gnosticism.”
