“I Will Erect a New Eden”
Recently, I was sitting on the couch doing old-school newspaper reading — The Epoch Times. All I need is a pipe! The article was Looking Through an Adversary’s Eyes: A KGB Agent’s Prophecy.
A quote used in the article rocked me. Jules-Antoinbe Castagnary was a French liberal politician, journalist, progressive, and influential art critic (1830-1888). The quote is meant to show the arrogance of intellectuals who are fooled by radical ideologies.
Beside the divine garden from which I have been expelled, I will erect a new Eden … At its entrance, I will set up Progress … and I will give a flaming sword into his hand and he will say to God, “Thou shalt not enter here.”Jules-Antoinbe Castagnary
