I talk about what has happened to Roger Scruton and show how: They ruined art, architecture, culture, science, love, dating, music, relationships, families, children, sex, comedy, education, government, democracy, religion, resilience, beauty, food…. and more. They now take pleasure in ruining individual people one by one like the debauched Roman Emperors did when they threw people to the lions. But realize this: you are now free to turn your backs on them. Their rules do not apply to you.
