On the Mindless Political Blather of so called Intellectuals…

Dr. John Lukacs, Historian

Dr. John Lukacs, Historian

“Professional intellectuals [politicians, professors, lawyers] will often chastise the character of their nation without recognizing that their profitable occupations have been made possible by the existing power and prosperity of their country.  They are reminiscent of someone who publicly thanks God for his existence as a preacher of sexual abstinence, while forgetting how his father and mother produced him.” ― Remembered Past; On History, Historians, and Historical Knowledge, by John Lukacs, Chapter II, Page 197, edited by Mark G. Malvasi and Jeffrey O. Nelson, ISI Books, Wilmington, Delaware, © 2005 ISI Books.
