“Our difficulties come from an unwarrantable mood of self-abasement into which we have been cast by a powerful section of our own intellectuals”

“The worst difficulties from which we suffer do not come from without. They come from within.

“They come from a peculiar type of brainy people always found in our country, who, if they add something to its culture, take much from its strength.

“Our difficulties come from an unwarrantable mood of self-abasement into which we have been cast by a powerful section of our own intellectuals.

“They come from the acceptance of defeatist doctrines by a large proportion of our politicians.

“But what have they to offer but vague internationalism, a squalid materialism, and the promise of impossible Utopias.

“Nothing can save Our Country if she will not save herself.”

Winston Churchill, St George’s Day 1933
