John Hawkins scored an interview with Victor Davis Hanson recently, and VDH has typically cogent things to say (Hanson spoke at Berkeley a little over a year ago and, to my shame, I didn’t hear about it until the day after) .

VDH has this to say about what he considers one of the biggest threats to all great world powers:

The classical topos of luxus, decadence brought about by affluence and leisure — read Petronius, Suetonius, or Juvenal — well, that is a real concern .

“Sick” being he operative word.

Really, can you imagine NOT puking after seeing that fat sack of stupid dance around in a clown suit? The bile is at the tip of my throat now just from typing those words.
