Good, Evil and the Spiritual: T. S. Eliot

“The number of people in possession of any criteria for discriminating between good and evil is very small; the number of the half-alive hungry for any form of spiritual experience, or what offers itself as spiritual experience, high or low, good or bad, is considerable. My own generation has not served them very well. Never has the printing-press been so busy, and never have such varieties of buncombe and false doctrine come from it”

[T. S. Eliot, After Strange Gods, 1934,p.61].

Is this still true?
