Western Civilization

The question isn’t whether radical Islam will predominate through half of the planet, as seems possible, if not likely. The question is what kind of alternative, weak or strong, will be offered? I’m talking about strength of ideas. Western culture, once so glorious, is in a down period and badly needs to revitalize. If people don’t believe in themselves, their civilization, their time, if they stand for nothing, then they’re not equipped to oppose anything.

"Muscular Liberalism"

This, the recent phrase of UK Prime Minister David Cameron.

It would be more difficult to create such an attitude in the United States, for various reasons. Commitment to the idea of Western Civilization among many groups in this country is nil. Among the elites, the young generations have all been brainwashed into the notion that all cultures are equivalent. Most are embarrassed to think of themselves as American. It's a sad situation. While Obama is the first American President fully imbued with these notions, he may not be the last, thanks to the sad condition of American higher level educational institutions. (Or lower level ones. I've worked as a substitute teacher in urban high schools before and saw the nonsense therein propagated.) Nonsense across the board.
