A new Benedict for a new Dark Ages

Thaddeus J. Kozinski
The Pope's latest encyclical is another skirmish in his war on the moral relativism which undermines our culture.
I bet it never crossed the minds of many living during the Dark Ages that they were particularly dark, or of those living during the decline and fall of the Roman Empire that it was speedily declining, let alone falling. Since the Owl of Minerva flies at dusk, and hindsight is 20/20, it appears to be an inexorable law of both history and human nature that men recognize the "signs of the times" only after those times have passed.
