C.S. Lewis: the prophet(?)

In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.
From the Abolition of Man, 1943

That should immediately affect my parenting and pastoring.  How about you?
