Root and source of my dislike of modern liberalism



   I regard America as degenerate and sick.  I am very 
   pessimistic, see no hope for reform or change, and see nothing 
   but gloom in the future.  My view of modern western society, in 
   general, is the same.  I see it all as sick and degenerate.  
   Why?  Other people might hold these very same pessimistic views 
   toward America (or all of western society) and yet for totally 
   different reasons than I (they might, for example, feel this 
   way because of a prejudice against capitalism or big business). 
   So what is the root and source of my gloomy outlook?  It comes 
   down to the moral permissiveness.  And who do I blame for this?  
   Modern liberalism and intellectualism.

   I have a strong dislike of modern intellectualism and 
   liberalism.  Why?  What are the roots of those feelings?   I 
   feel the liberals are either agnostic or atheistic in their 
   basic outlooks and beliefs or, at best, deny the basic 
   teachings of the Bible.  Their liberal outlook is intricately 
   intertwined with moral relativism.  And moral relativism leads 
   directly to moral permissiveness. These liberals have had a 
   pervasive influence on the society and that influence has 
   produced what we have today:  an anti-Puritan, anti-Victorian 
   society, contemptuous of the strict moral standards of true 
   Christianity, and antagonistic towards all that I am.
