In Townhall, Heidegger-led revolution
leads to school shootings.
Nietzsche didn’t kill God. He merely noticed that the Enlightenment had done so. Heidegger, in turn, took God’s metaphorical death as an opportunity to insist that no one believe in anything. In practice, the Heidegger-led revolution against reality, against truth, against everything has led to the formation of a societal ethos that offers its citizens nothing substantive, nothing beyond immediate and material satisfaction. We saw the effects of this nihilism on a mass scale throughout the 20th century, and we are seeing it on a different, but equally deadly, individual scale now.
