There are growing fears about the future of Western Civilization.

It’s becoming clearer to the American and European public that most of its schools, churches, and media outlets do not care a lick for preserving the intellectual treasures and moral principles of their culture’s past, and are even inculcating a disdain for all things Western.

At the same time, the public is aware that this disdain is also shared by many other peoples around the world—peoples who, in their minds, represent a potential threat to their way of life.

I’m glad to see the growing public concern for the future of the West. That kind of concern is necessary for the preservation of a civilization. As historian Will Durant once wrote:

Civilization is not inherited; it has to be learned and earned by each generation anew; if the transmission should be interrupted for one century, civilization would die, and we should be savages again.
