The great cultural revolutionaries of the 1970s and 1980s, the great heroes of humanism, the brave pioneers exploring the outer reaches of amoral autonomy, have fallen! They take their place on the list of "the scumbags of the 20th century." We trace the paths of these fallen meteors—Weinstein, Polanski, and Woody Allen. They were the great apologists for the sexual revolution, the cruel existentialism of Jean-Paul Sartre, and a post-Christian atheism. Now they work well as exemplars for Psalm 37:36. What lessons might the rising generation learn from this disaster?
