Today, I present another excellent short essay by Anthony Esolen, “The Least of These,” in The Public Discourse. Esolen eviscerates the Great Society and its contemporary spiritless functionaries to reveal the interior rot in the Corpse Politic that the Left never mentions. “Mainstream” conservatives lack the righteous fury that needs to be wielded against the forces of darkness—probably because they play the role of token oppositional zombies in our nation’s onesided Kulturkampf. They have no life. Esolen, however, shows a spark. I heartily recommend his work.
