Monsters are Real

Jonah Goldberg has an excellent column in National Review Online, with some thoughts on Monsters and Evil.

It is very important for us to recognize evil when we see it, and acknowledge its existence in the world. It is one of the gifts that God has given to all people, the ability to discern evil. Why do so many of our most educated people strive so mightily against this recognition? Is it a coincidence that they dismiss Liberty, freedom, honor, and Truth with the same tutt-tutt and wave of the hand?

There was a time of absolutes, but then we thought ourselves so much wiser. We taught our children that everything is relative, and now we are old and despair.
