Had Enough…?

Charles Péguy

“It is one and the same movement which makes people no longer believe in the Republic and no longer believe in God, no longer want to lead a republican life, and no longer want to lead a Christian life, they have had enough of it … One and the same sterility withers the city and Christendom. The political city and the Christian City. The city of man and the City of God. That is the specific sterility of modern times. … [T]he modern world is … opposed and contrary to all old cultures, to all old régimes, to all old cities, to everything which is culture, to everything which is the city. In fact, it is the first time in the history of the world that a whole world lives and prospers, appears to prosper, in opposition to all culture.”   – Charles Péguy
