"The traditional forms of the family"

“The peoples who allow the natural bases of society to be destroyed by the artificial conditions of the new urban civilisation will gradually disappear and their place will be taken by those populations which live under simpler conditions and preserve the traditional forms of the family.”

~Christopher H. Dawson: Enquiries into Religion and Culture.

  1. I've long thought that this was the case.

    Indeed, in our modern (Western) world in which no human condition is to be regarded as a fault and all human standards are to go no further than the self, I've long thought our chances of defending our long developed ideals against the assault of other concepts stands a very poor chance of success, as at least those competing with us have a sense of standards that extents beyond what merely pleases us, temporarily, alone.
