“Intellectuals, who are overly sympathetic to the unpleasant habits of other cultures, claim that we cannot impose our values on immigrants simply because values are relative and it is extremely imperialistic and paternalistic, if not racist, to think that our values are better than those of other cultures - these same intellectuals often show a high degree of steadfastness of values with regard to the past.

The colonisation of Africa was particularly scandalous, the American slave owners were huge b*stards, Columbus was a major b*stard, and so on. These b*stards, too, lived in a culture that, this time because of the distance in time, deviated significantly from ours, but strangely enough, that is no ground for clemency.”
