From the Archives of the Belmont Club

One of Wretchard's darkly prophetic statements:
The Left will wake up one day, on the morning it is led down a dark corridor to a cell floored with rubber mats, sloping curiously down to a corner where a single drain waits to carry fluid away. The walls will be bare but for a banner with the words 'Allah is Great' opposite a video camera whose tripod legs are protected with a drop cloth. On a table will be a single knife. And then they will know. Then they will see.

I hope it does not have to come to that for all of us.

"And then they will know. Then they will see."

And then...it will be too late.

That sounds like Solzhenitsyn: "All you freedom-loving 'left-wing' thinkers in the West! You left laborites! You progressive American, German, and French students! As far as you are concerned, none of this amounts to much. As far as you are concerned, this whole book of mine is a waste of effort. You may suddenly understand it all someday -- but only when you yourselves hear "hands behind your backs there!" and step ashore in our Archipelago. (3 Gulag Archipelago 518 (1978 paperback edition.))
