Of the Intellectual Kind

René Girard (author of Things Hidden Since the Foundation of the World and Violence and the Sacred) was just heard tonight in Radio Courtoisie (an extreme-rightist French radio station) chatting about how violent these times are, about how dramatic increase in abortion proves it, and about how this is a great demographic disaster because Muslims have more kids than “us” and they are going to outnumber “us” in Europe.

    On m’a pourtant dit que son bouquin sur Clausewitz est brillant…Surprenant.

    Of course, it would be completely idiotic to consider that, just because of a couple of opinions briefly mentioned in passing in an interview that was actually about other, more philosophical topics (the apocalypse), this brilliant intellectual, author of many crucial and valuable contributions, including that last one on Clausewitz, would be some sort of a “facha absoluto”.
