51ZxkOeuPuL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_[1]Recently I've been re-reading T.E. Lawrence's Seven Pillars of Wisdom and I came across something in the first chapter I think is very apt to our current predicament:

".....Pray God that men reading the story will not, for love of the glamour of strangeness, go out to prostitute themselves and their talents in serving another race.

A man who gives himself to be a possession of aliens leads a Yahoo life, having bartered his soul to a brute master.  He is not of them."

While Lawrence is warning of the danger of being an agent of one's government and then "going native" as he himself did during the First World War in the Middle East, I think this quote could be aptly extrapolated to whole swaths of our society who have in a sense, gone native.  We all know the type.

The denizens of the ACLU and the $PLC who merrily labor to import the Third World into our midst who will at some point realize after it's much too late that they have fouled their own nest too in an attempt to swamp their enemies.
