The Humanities & the Future of Western Civilization

American culture began its precipitous decline when post-secondary education became disinterested in Western Civilization, which only can be learned and understood, and from which we only can understand who we are and how we got here – and why we chose the direction we chose, through the Humanities.

The adults allowed this because their Baby Boomer kiddies in 1968 rebelled at hard work of scholarship and occupied the administrative offices instead of studying in the libraries, and the “Greatest Generation” gave up on their get – who now are trashing the planet – witness Obama, Kerry, Democrat voters, the Far […]

A “Split” Means Two Sides

Trump’s presence on the world stage is unnerving those, Left and Right, who are invested in the Western post-war order. Their complaint is that he will upset what already is devolving to failure, as acknowledged by the people living in the countries of the West, if not by its out-of-touch elites.

With european fertility nonexistent, and the takeover of all future employment in europe by illiterate muslims as a result, the “West” now consists of N. America, Britain (maybe – post-Brexit, we shall see…), and a mercantilist East-Orthodox Russia trying to Westernize.

There can be no “split” with a europe […]

The (new) Gathering Storm

Waves of change are washing against the hull of the Western-dominated global order that has existed since 1945 – and the ship’s officers are denying there’s a storm.

The Ruling Class elites of the West have become totalitarian – on “both” sides of the ship’s bridge. This is why Brexit and why Trump. It also will be why Italy shortly exits, and why the Dutch, the Czechs and others are preparing to cast off.

This kind of childish blather from the EU is aimed at low-info voters and those who have not been paying attention for 20+ years, who […]

If Our Culture is Worth Defending Why Are We Not Doing So?

When we are being invaded and our people killed and culture destroyed it matters only to intellectuals that those doing the destroying are not ‘armed forces of a nation state;’ they still need to be repulsed as the violent invaders of our culture, our nation, our streets and our neighborhoods that they are, using whatever force is necessary to do so.

Either our government accepts that the defense of our culture, our Liberty, our country, and our families is necessary – or it does not –  and the time has come to replace that government.

We need to recognize that […]

Brussels and the Future of the West

Western Liberal democracies developed, grew, and thrived by defending and expanding human rights – and by defending themselves with total war. VD Hanson has written two books about the use by the West of total war, “The Western Way of War,” and “Carnage and Culture,” two must-reads to truly understand how Western Civilization grew and thrived.

No indication exists that these same democracies have any interest in survival as they now are rejecting defending themselves from another civilization intent on destroying those rights – and Western Civilization itself.

That this surprises anyone shows only the near-complete […]
