Julián Marías

“Today's youth has not learned 'to see humor in misfortune,' because they have hardly known what misfortune is. They are being urged to do the opposite: they are being asked to declare a state of mourning and to make sadness and protest the rule in the midst of what must be considered--in view of the true state of the world--an incomparable example of well-being, justice, freedom, and prosperity.”
