The Age Of Treason

Today's Maurin

Pope Pius IX and Cardinal Newman consider liberalism, whether it be religious, philosophical, or economic, the greatest error of the nineteenth century.

Modern liberalism is the logical sequence of the so-called age of Enlightenment- the age of Voltaire, Rousseau, Thomas Paine- sometimes called the Age of Reason in opposition to the Age of Faith.

By sponsoring nationalism and capitalism modern liberals have given up the search for truth and have become paid propagandists.

Modern liberals have ceased to appeal to reason, and have chosen to appeal to prejudice.

So the Age of Reason has become the age of Treason, as Julien Benda points out in his book entitled: “The treason of the Intellectuals”.
