A Culture To Arms?
In a recent article at NRO Senator Thompson writes ...
It's time for people who believe that they have a stake in Western civilization and its traditions to get a little backbone -- even if it offends somebody.
A sentence that is in many ways is the essence of the "un-PC". Though the article's stated purpose is the defence of a robust telling of history, Senator Thompson is taking aim at the bankrupcy of the multi-cultural mindset and the havoc it wreaks.
The sentence points out how the West has apologized for its existence and feels guilt for its success. This is cultural angst is a poison. I am so sick of reading how we are the cause of the world's woes, from global warming to poverty, war to obesity. We are committing suicide by inches.
Thompson in this article is sounding the call to arms in the arena of ideas, and culture. He quotes Orwell ...
"Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past."and continues in his article with ...
Even in America, our children are often taught a watered down, inoffensive and culturally sensitive version of events ranging from the Crusades to the battle at the Alamo.
which strikes at the heart of the multi-culti thesis. The end result of the multi-culti thesis is that the only civilization not worth celebrating is our own. American exceptionalism cannot be sustained if we having nothing to celebrate. Furthermore, the West has brought the world representative government, the scientific method and the ideal of women's equality. Is all that not worth defending? Is it not worth offending someone? Is it not worth fighting for, dying for, and even killing for?
