The Condition of Modern Man

Malcolm Muggeridge (as quoted by Ravi Zacharias):
It is difficult to resist the conclusion that twentieth century man has decided to abolish himself; tired of the struggle to be himself, he's created boredom out of his own affluence, impotence out of his own erotomania, and vulnerability out of his own strength. He himself blows the trumpet that brings the walls of his own cities crashing down, until at last having educated himself into imbecility, having drugged himself into stupefaction, he keels over a wearied old battered brontosaurus and becomes extinct.
