Alasdair Macintyre quote

A crucial turning point in that earlier history occurred when men and
women of good will turned aside from the task of shoring up the Roman
imperium and ceased to identify the continuation of civility and moral
community with the maintenance of the imperium. What they set
themselves to achieve instead - often not recognizing fully what they
were doing - was the construction of new forms of community within
which the moral life could be sustained so that both morality and
civility might survive the coming ages of barbarism and darkness. If
my account of our moral condition is correct, we ought also to
conclude that for some time now we too have reached that turning
point. What matters at this stage is the construction of local forms
of community within which civility and the intellectual and moral life
can be sustained through the new dark ages which are already upon us.
...This time, however, the barbarians are not waiting beyond the
frontiers, they have already been governing us for quite some time.
And it is our lack of consciousness of this that constitutes part of
our predicament. We are not waiting for Godot, but for anotherâ€"and
doubtless very differentâ€"St. Benedict.

Yes, our current barbarians are religious one's and are using the same horrific methods the Catholic Church did during the Dark Ages - terror and torture. The enlightenment has only begun and will not be complete until the the St. Benedicts of the world are no longer in power.
