Continuing the miniseries on The Abolition of Man, this episode concludes the discussion of the first chapter of the book, by leading into an explanation of what Lewis calls the Tao - the recognition that there is objective value in the world. The chapter concludes by commenting on the parodic tragicomedy wherein we laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst, the exact situation that an education that ignores the reality of the Tao will automatically create.
