Valuable Ideas

A small quote from Arestovich:

The Europe that gave us Descartes’s “I think therefore I am” is now giving us the worldview based on the idea of “My feelings were hurt, therefore I am.” And that’s a dead end.

He also mocks the woke obsession with “green” fads in a really funny way.

What I find interesting is that there are clear similarities between Arestovich’s thinking and that of the conservative Argentinean historian Marcelo Gullo Omodeo. Both say that Europe has amputated any possibility of the future for itself when it started on the road of self-denunciation and historical guilt. Now, Arestovich and Gullo Omodeo say, Europe is only a museum for tourists from other parts of the world. The parts of the world where people love life and don’t think we all need to live in pods and take a shower once a month “to save the planet.”

I’m sure Arestovich and Gullo Omodeo never heard of each other. This is good because it means these ideas are cropping up in many different places.
