What happens in the West in the future is pivotal. That’s because it’s the only civilization in history that enshrines the individual, as opposed to the collective or the State.

It emphasizes things like free thought, free speech, free markets, reason, and individual liberty. These are historically alien concepts.

All of the good things we have come out of those values. It’s why almost all the world’s great literature, music, art, and science has also originated in the West.

If you destroy the underpinning values of the West—which is exactly what the “woke,” PC, and socialist movements are in the process of doing—you’ll also destroy what it has created. The question is whether the fruits of civilization will survive the death of the tree that grew them.
