The Future of Western Civilization Is Imperiled by Mob Rule. Now Is the Time for Courage and Leadership.

The war on history has spread across our country and has even spilled over to other parts of the Western world.

Now, on a daily basis, we see scenes of lawless mobs attacking and tearing down statues, and defacing monuments of every type—often as authorities stand idly by.

But this violence has hardly been reserved just for statues.

After toppling a statue of an abolitionist who gave his life to the cause as a member of the Union Army, a mob in Madison, Wisconsin, mercilessly beat a Wisconsin Democrat state senator who supported the protests.

Mob rule is indeed coming to America. It must be stopped.

Authorities have numerous tools to stop the destruction if they would just show the willingness to use them. Failure to act will only encourage more acts of vandalism and destruction.

As I explained in my book, “The War on History: The Conspiracy to Rewrite America’s Past,” the attacks on our shared history go beyond any individual or statue.

What’s in peril now is not just the reputation of Christopher Columbus, the merits of the Founding Fathers, or the legacy of the Civil War. It’s something much broader and deeper.

What’s being threatened is the long history of ideas and institutions created and developed in the West.

The United States, of course, has been the prime target of radicals, because—whether we chose this role or not—it is the pinnacle of Western prosperity and strength.

Unfortunately, we have reached a point—due to the radical transformation of our schools and the rise of the new Left—where our elite institutions are no longer willing or able to defend the very ideas and people that made possible their existence.

In fact, those institutions are leading the charge to bring about this cultural revolution.

Those who do stand up to the statue topplers and radicals—even those who could be broadly defined as “liberal” or on the left—will be drowned out and castigated, will be accused of being racist, and purged by the inquisitors of social justice.

Just look at how the historians who stood up against the inaccurate, flawed, and ultimately destructive “1619 Project” developed by The New York Times have been treated.

The project’s creator, Nikole Hannah-Jones, dismissed her critics as “old white males,” and called others “anti-black.”

The purge and erasure of history require dissent to be silenced. No one may question the narrative. No one may be allowed to freely pursue the truth.

That’s what the war on history is leading to. It’s a war on 1776.

The attacks on history have moved international as well. Statues of Winston Churchill and Abraham Lincoln have been vandalized and defaced by mobs in London.

It’s telling that those were among the primary symbols being targeted.

After all, Churchill and Lincoln in their own ways were leaders who unabashedly stood by the essence of what their countries were in a time of almost overwhelming crisis.

Instead of tearing down Lincoln and Churchill, we must now look to them for inspiration in an uncertain age.

In an address at Bristol University in 1938, the British prime minister-to-be warned that civilization itself was under attack, that it would be tested, and that it would survive only if free people drew on their strength and courage to defend it.

In words striking in the face of our challenges today, Churchill said: “Civilization will not last, freedom will not survive, peace will not be kept, unless a very large majority of mankind unite together to defend them and show themselves possessed of a constabulary power before which barbaric and atavistic forces will stand in awe.”

Will we, like generations before us, answer the call to defend our way of life? Will it be the generation that grew up at the “end of history”—after the Nazi menace was crushed by the arsenal of democracy, the USSR’s evil empire collapsed, and free people stood triumphant—that will cast our hard-won victories aside in an effort to purge our imperfect past?

In an era of mob rule—where the very basis of American and Western civilization is being questioned and attacked from within, and when rising superpowers like communist China that stand in opposition to everything we represent are on the march—it is essential that free people resist the impulses leading to our self-immolation.

The hour is late, and our hot summer days are becoming dark.

Still, imagine what things were like for Lincoln sitting in the White House in 1861 as government of the people, by the people, and for the people appeared to be on the precipice of perishing from the earth.

Imagine how things must have looked for Churchill in the summer of 1940, when darkness was closing in on the last free country on the Continent, the British elite were eyeing capitulation to the Nazi juggernaut, and across the Atlantic the American behemoth was still sleeping.

The times were grim, but leadership and statesmanship in the face of nearly insurmountable challenges held civilization together, allowed free people to rally, gather their strength, and stem the tide of ruin, bringing forth what Churchill called the “bright sunlit uplands” in the era that followed.

Now we are again being called upon to mount a defense of our way of life. We have a great deal to lose and much at stake, because what’s at stake are not just statues and stone, but the freedom of millions alive today and the many more yet unborn.

  1. I disagree that this imperils Western Civilization alone. In India, since 1947, we have see the results of iconoclasm, re writing History and retrospective laws, which have created a Nation without a civilization, an honest History from which future generations may benefit, or, cultural moorings and continuity. A Nation without roots heading towards suicide in successive paroxysms of arbitrary Government by quasi educated and semi literate goons more influenced by competing ochlocracies and media entertainment than science, logic or reason.

  2. Only one thing I may agree with you upon, searching the truth is the goal of the research, whether historical or social. One of the main problems of the current events in the United States and elsewhere is that it highly politicized and manipulated for electoral purposes by tow parties. Unfortunately, your article is part of this politicization and manipulation and I see it as an effort to silence other critical voices of history and values of the West Do you think that killing a black man under the knees of a white policeman is one of the values and way of life that should be defended? Do you think that defending Western Civilization and values means ignoring the brutality and horrors of European colonialism? The historical narration of humankind is not and should not be one marration.

    • Thanks for your comment.

      These riots are not about the killing of a black man. The goal of these riots is the destruction of the USA. Otherwise they would not be killing other black people and destroying statues of those who fought against slavery. Black Lives Matter is a hate organization and they are trained Marxists that immediately targeted the Jewish community with their rioting. This does not sound like a fight for equal rights.

      Ultimately, all of these rioters are just useful idiots for those in charge that are pushing for a global reset and a new world order. They want to replace the police force with robots and track everyone with 5G and forced vaccinations. The political attacks between left and right are just theater for those who are truly in control.

  3. I may agree with you that freedom and the right of every individual to choose what fits her/his interests, is the strongest value in the Western experience. For me, freedom is the highest value. But still putting the current events in the United States in terms of left and right rivalries serves the cause of Republican president meanwhile, this problem is recurrent in the very recent history of the USA. I happened during the last months of Barack Obama. It is not an issue of left/right or Democrats/Republicans. Lastly, I have mentioned George Floyde’s case just as an example.

  4. The riots are the Islamo-Communist (aka Left Liberal) rump of the deeply corrupt Democrat Party and its backers that have taken advantage of the death of a Negro (George Floyd) in a Police Encounter and Covid 19 to make life difficult for Trump by uniting the “AntiFa” (ANTI FAscist movement of variegated malcontents with Government) and now with the direct backing of China’s communist agents in the US as China is feeling the heat of Trump’s foreign policy.

    This is just one more extra legal and extra Constitutional method devised by the Democrat party to shake a Trump that they have been attempting to oust by some allegation or the other since the Democrats and Hilarious Clinton lost to Trump. The most serious one, which was the fabrication of the Steele Dossier which the FBI and CIA had commissioned from an ex MI6 agent for Hilarious-Obama to portray Trump as a Russian stooge, has failed miserably. This strengthens Trump with the common voter while weakening the Democrats. This even opens the door for prosecuting Obama and his coterie including the Hilarious Clinton. Hence this hue and cry.

    The Islamo-Communist Democrats are of imagination all compact with the deeply corrupt Islamo Communist Indian National Congress. But unlike India they do have a majority in the US lower house (Congress) which gives them enough clout to create a lot more trouble than their Indian counterparts.
