This Orwell’s quote applies fully.
Many western “intellectuals”–being a neurotic demagogue passes in the modern West for “intellectualism”–spent a lot of time trying to institutionalize pedophilia. They pushed the Overton Window to the extreme and institutionalized the whole gender perversion as a legitimate act. Children in the West are being systematically targeted, often with the cooperation of utterly corrupt American teachers, by the so called “transgender” lobby and I disagree with Putin on this one–it is not “borderline” crime against humanity, it is a full fledged one, especially since children are involved.
But no matter how we define it from the judicial point of view, pedophilia eventually will be institutionalized in the West because we can only speculate on a true scale of pedophilia of Western “elites”, what is undeniable–the scale is large. But then again, attraction to Nabokov’s Lolita among Western “artsy” and “intellectual” class is well documented and it has nothing to do with rather average writing and questionable motives behind this novel. Yet, they praise it. Western, once mighty, intellect is lost and it is not coming back. What’s left is a work on legitimizing Sodom and Gomorrah and if they need to sacrifice children–they will. Modern West has no moral compass anymore.
