Are the Dark Ages Back?

Victor Davis Hanson writes "The Dark Ages--Live from the Middle East!" over at Jewish World Review. He discusses how easily civilization can slip away--through fear or indifference, it can "be forfeited with a whimper (not a bang)." Something to contemplate--how thin is the veneer of civilization?

There are so many trouble spots in the world today that it is difficult to keep track of them all. North Korea, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan. And so forth. And so on. However, the last thing we need in any case is to be publishing classified documents in newspapers, or setting timetables for withdrawing from Iraq (and publishing the dates for all the world--including the enemy--to see). A little common sense and a little patriotic feeling, plus some loyalty and integrity, would go along way here, right about now.
