George Orwell : "If there was hope, it must lie in the proles."

Reader comment on item: How the West Could Lose

Submitted by myth (Germany), Jan 17, 2010 at 20:20

Dr Pipes finds it "difficult to see what will stop them". Quoting George Orwell "If there was hope, it must lie in the proles." the western world will once again need to rely on ordinary people, people who would not let islamists ban beer in pubs, want bikinis on beaches. People who wouldn't want to talk religion when there is football on television. It is those people who fought won and died in all those wars. Any democrat should believe in this.
