Scarborough Needs Men

Anthony Esolen has published a brief but fine essay in Touchstone about the dystopic wasteland where the lower classes survive in the wake of the sexual revolution and the consequent social collapse: “Scarborough Needs Men.” Esolen strikes me as a traditional, Christian version of Anthony Daniels, a.k.a. Theodore Dalrymple. They are the Zolas of our time, though one wonders if Zola would do Zola’s job today. Would the ascerbic social critic continue to see clearly when the world of his dreams has turned into a nightmare? One wonders.
