From Nicolás Gómez Dávila

“Thinking to open its arms to the modern world, the Church opened its legs instead.gomez-davila-escolios

“Modern society surpasses previous societies in only two things: its vulgarity and its technology”.

“We don’t condemn capitalism because it promotes inequality, but because it favors the rise of inferior human types”.

Nicolás Gómez Dávila: escolios contra el mundo moderno at Cultura Transversal.
