“Things fall apart; the center cannot hold. Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world.”
W.B. Yeats wrote those lines in the bleak aftermath of World War I—they resonate today.

But the violence and destruction didn’t spring from nowhere.Two brilliant writings explain what’s happening, and I recommend them to you: “A Picture Is Not an Argument” by Leonard Peikoff and “Racism” by Ayn Rand.
