Creating a howling wilderness

Peter HitchensI lived in the dying years of the Soviet Union in Moscow. I travelled extensively in the regions run by Communism. I saw it and I know how very, very hostile it was to religion and why it was, and one of the things I want to convey to people is how that hostility is now being re-forged by the new atheists who in many cases have no idea of the forces they are trying to summon off the ground, and very little idea of the dangers of what they are doing. If you drive God out the world then you create a howling wilderness.
