  • The Crisis of Western Civ

    New York Times ^ | April 21, 2017 | David Brooks
    Between 1935 and 1975, Will and Ariel Durant published a series of volumes that together were known as “The Story of Civilization.” They basically told human history (mostly Western history) as an accumulation of great ideas and innovations, from the Egyptians, through Athens, Magna Carta, the Age of Faith, the Renaissance and the Declaration of the Rights of Man. The series was phenomenally successful, selling over two million copies. That series encapsulated the Western civilization narrative that people, at least in Europe and North America, used for most of the past few centuries to explain their place in the world...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 02/19/17 | Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh
    No matter where the mantra FORWARD is coming from, dark Hollywood dressed in sick pink, academia, or the main stream media, it is a prescription for globalism and destruction of western civilization at the behest of billionaire elites The glossy magazine came in the mail a few days ago from my alma mater’s College of Education, with this unfortunate name printed in big, white, bold letters, lest you miss it, FORWARD. Maybe the dean had no idea that FORWARD graced all propaganda materials for Germany’s Social Democratic Party, Vorwärts (Forward), founded in 1876, and that it is still published monthly...
  • Putin Criticizes Western Countries for Abandoning Christian Roots

    Text of the video: A further challenge for the national Russian identity is connected to the processes we observe outside of Russia. They include foreign policy, moral, and other aspects. We see that many Euro-Atlantic states have taken the way where they deny or reject their own roots, including their Christian roots which form the basis of Western civilization. In these countries, the moral basis and any traditional identity are being denied - national, religious, cultural, and even gender identities are being denied or relativised. There, politics treats a family with many children as juridically equal to a homosexual partnership;...

    One of the most remarkable aspects of the Charlotte riots-and despite media social conditioning, that’s precisely what they are-is how unsurprising this reaction is. Whether it’s a clear cut case of police brutality/excessive force against an innocent civilian, or an example of a law enforcement officer defending his life in the face of lethal aggression, this is what we as a society have come to expect after every police shooting. Regardless of the race of the officer, what quickly ensues is an anti-white pogrom, as well as press justifications for this atavistic savagery, despite reporters being targeted by the same...

    What was the role of the Catholic Church in building Western Civilization? While the typical mainstream narrative depicts the church as hostile to science and philosophy, it appears that once again the truth about history has been stolen from us. Dr. Duke Pesta joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss the unspoken truth about the impact of the Catholic church on scientific inquiry, philosophy and Western Civilization overall.

    One of the largest police force's in the UK is considering letting Muslim officers wear burkas in an attempt to boost diversity. West Midlands Police has said it will discuss letting the traditional Islamic dress - which covers the entirety of a woman's face and body - to become part of Muslim female officers' uniform. At a recent meeting, Chief Constable David Thompson, said he would consider employing staff who wear a burka as he looks to increase black and minority ethnic (BME) officers in the region to 30 per cent.

    Eastern European nations happen to be the countries that are the strongest defenders of Western Christian civilization. Having lived under communism, these people can see through the communistic system of political correctness that has taken over Western Europe. My favorite country, after America, is Poland. It is a very pro-family country, that elects pro-family politicians.

    We are convinced Donald Trump is the right candidate to choose in this presidential election for two reasons. Those reasons are Iran and Israel. Iran - the primary financial supporter of global terrorism - poses an existential danger to Western values, culture and life. Israel opposes that mortal threat to Jews and the West. And it is the sanctuary of the Jewish people.

    Islam is at war with Kafirs, i.e. "unbelievers" who reject Islam. A cursory look around the globe will see Muslims slaughtering non-Muslims in not only Europe and America, but also Africa and Asia. In fact, they've killed far more Christians in Nigeria and Hindus in India than they have atheists in Europe. And of course they've killed far more Muslims who are "Kafirs" because they don't subscribe to the right particular interpretation of Islam. By casting it as "Islam versus the West" it allows the SJW types to make it seem as though this is just another chapter in the...

Today we look at how the End of Education set the stage for what I like to call “The End of History.”  I’m drawing from Res Idiotica, a post by Patrick J Deenan, Professor of Constitutional Studies and Political Thought at the University of Notre Dame, which was forwarded to me by Blonde Gator.                                          Watching those lifelong dancers of a day                                           As night closed in, I felt myself alone                                          In...

    An effort by a group of Stanford University students to restore a Western Civilization class requirement has been decisively rejected by the student body, with voting results released Monday showing it mustering less than 15 percent support. The ballot initiative was promoted by members of the school’s conservative-leaning Stanford Review. If passed, it would have called for Stanford to require that all freshmen complete a two-quarter course covering “the politics, history, philosophy, and culture of the Western world.” Stanford once possessed a similar requirement, but eliminated it after a student campaign in the 1980s that denounced it as fostering racism,...

    While homicidal, suicidal and genocidal jihadists are busy plotting the next soft-target terror attacks on the West, docile Westerners are busy shedding cartoon tears and doodling broken hearts on social media. European artists rushed to fill Twitter and Instagram with images of Belgian comic book character Tintin weeping after vengeful Muslim terrorists left the Brussels airport and subway system buried in rubble and dead bodies. Residents of the besieged city -- which recklessly opened its doors to mass Muslim immigration and criminalized the vocal dissent of those who've objected over past decade -- meekly protested the Quran-inspired violence by leaving...

    There is a class that most college students will take at one point in their academic career. It is the course on Western Civilization—“Western Civ” for short. It is a feeble attempt to supplement the modern college curriculum (typically in two freshman-level courses) with what used to be the very backbone of a liberal education. The course revolves around classics of the Western Tradition: Plato’s Republic, Virgil’s Aeneid, Augustine’s Confessions, Descartes’ Meditations, and Locke’s Second Treatise on Government. But one text in particular, I think, has been subject to mistreatment and misuse—the Holy Bible.The problem is simple. One of...

    The Judeo-Christian tradition recognizes the individual, apart from the mob. That individual is invited to meet and talk, face to face and utterly spontaneously, with God, without interruption from any earthly authority. That encounter is the life spark of Western Civilization.
  • Only a Revival of Christianity Can Save European Civilization.

    09/08/2015 11:11:20 AM PDT · by pinochet · 53 replies
    We are witnessing before our very eyes, the last days of European civilization. The slow collapse of the Roman Empire began in 410, when a group of Germanic barbarians led by Alaric the Visigoth, attacked and looted the city of Rome. The collapse of the Roman Empire finally came in 476. We are now seeing a new barbarian invasion of Europe, this time by third world barbarians. The communists who run the European Union want to invite all of the third world people into Europe, because third world people will vote for the "mainstream" communist political parties in Europe. The...

    This particular chapter in Carroll Quigley's Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time presents a fascinating and at times, stunning analysis of the contrast between Western and Eastern civilizations. from <Chapter 7— Creation of the Russian Civilization In the nineteenth century most historians regarded Russia as part of Europe but it is now becoming increasingly clear that Russia is another civilization quite separate from Western Civilization. Both of these civilizations are descended from Classical Civilization, but the connection with this predecessor was made so differently that two quite different traditions came into existence. Russian traditions were...

    While much attention is understandably focused on the repercussions of the Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision, the movement to bring the Boy Scouts of America into alignment with current LGBT orthodoxy is well underway. National Boy Scouts of America president Robert Gates announced in May that he wanted to end the organization’s blanket ban on “open and avowed” homosexual adults serving as BSA leaders. Less than 30 days later, the Cradle of Liberty Council issued a press release announcing that Council’s new policy is as follows: “Discrimination in any form, including but not limited to discrimination on the basis of...
  • Judaism's Sexual Revolution: Why Judaism (and then Christianity) Rejected Homosexuality

    orthodoxytoday.org ^ | Dennis Prager
    When Judaism demanded that all sexual activity be channeled into marriage, it changed the world. The Torah's prohibition of non-marital sex quite simply made the creation of Western civilization possible. Societies that did not place boundaries around sexuality were stymied in their development. The subsequent dominance of the Western world can largely be attributed to the sexual revolution initiated by Judaism and later carried forward by Christianity. This revolution consisted of forcing the sexual genie into the marital bottle. It ensured that sex no longer dominated society, heightened male-female love and sexuality (and thereby almost alone created the possibility of...

    I figure it is inevitable. Could have never happened before in the history of this planet, but this is what "liberal/progressive" politics will bring us. I blame the Democrat party for destroying the moral fiber of this beautiful country, and that is the camel's nose under the tent of what I am saying here.
