Western Civilization

Oprah has been making a new TV series Belief.  The series is part of the symptoms of what is wrong with Western Civilization.  At one time we had the courage of our convictions.  We knew that we were the good guys and that what we believed was best not only for us, but was universal.

Democracy, free enterprise, and Christianity were the three major forces that propelled the Western World to the dominance we enjoyed until recently.  The English, Spanish and many other European nations conquered most of the world.  They moved those nations from tribal societies into modern nations.

Now there is a TV series that says Christianity is no better than any other belief.  The main stream media tells us we don't have the right to insist that national borders mean nothing.  That we can't continue with capitalism, we must be socialists.  We can have democracy as long as non-citizens can vote and the elections have the "right" result.  We need to reject this new thinking and return to the principles that made Western nations great; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
