"The world to which we are sent ..."

 
Years of liberal dogma have spawned a generation of amoral and brutalised youngsters
 
This is the world to which we are sent to preach the gospel:
If you live a normal life of absolute futility, which we can assume most of this week’s rioters do, excitement of any kind is welcome. The people who wrecked swathes of property, burned vehicles and terrorised communities have no moral compass to make them susceptible to guilt or shame.
 
Most have no jobs to go to or exams they might pass. They know no family role models, for most live in homes in which the father is unemployed, or from which he has decamped.
  
They are illiterate and innumerate, beyond maybe some dexterity with computer games and BlackBerries.
 
They are essentially wild beasts. I use that phrase advisedly, because it seems appropriate to young people bereft of the discipline that might make them employable; of the conscience that distinguishes between right and wrong.
 
They respond only to instinctive animal impulses — to eat and drink, have sex, seize or destroy the accessible property of others.
 
The depressing truth is that at the bottom of our society is a layer of young people with no skills, education, values or aspirations. They do not have what most of us would call ‘lives’: they simply exist.
Come quickly, Lord Jesus
 
Best,
 
Steve
