Americans generally agree that news media should be ‘objective’ and ‘report the facts.’ But there is no such thing as merely reporting ‘the facts.’
The West has forgotten its own history, Shapiro argues, and is abandoning Judeo-Christian values and natural law in favor of moral subjectivism.
The news that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen pled guilty to a process crime was enough to convince them of Trump’s guilt, despite the lack of evidence.
It’s no wonder Anakin Skywalker would think to resolve political conflicts by conversion or coercion instead of tolerance and persuasion.
If you want to know how the American ‘miracle’ came to happen, start with 18th-century preacher Jonathan Mayhew, in the book ‘Father of Liberty.’
Jonah Goldberg’s defense of the legacy of the Enlightenment ends up being mostly a rehearsal of boilerplate 20th-century American conservatism.
Donald Trump, it turned out, read the conservative electorate much more accurately than the finest minds in Republican punditry. Their response is revenge.
There is nothing new under the sun, just different justifications for similar ideas. The Enlightenment had their own for racism, just as all ages have.
Jonah Goldberg is certainly not naive about the role religion plays in the ‘miracle’ of western classical liberalism. ‘Suicide of the West’ is best understood as an apologetic to non-conservatives.

Warring camps of employee activists at Google exemplify the dysfunction of our political climate and the rise of tribalism in American life.
Jonah Golberg’s latest book, ‘Suicide of the West,’ is a timely and incisive reminder not to take liberalism and capitalism for granted, but its diagnosis of why liberalism is failing is somewhat incomplete.
Ideas and persuasion alone are as insufficient to stem the tide of illiberalism sweeping across the country as a few liquor raids were to bringing down Al Capone.
Rich Lowry just wrote off the NeverTrump movement as ‘deluded.’ Yes, the same Rich Lowry who compiled the ‘Against Trump’ issue of National Review.
If featuring a pro-Trump character on Roseanne makes the show part of the ‘culture war,’ it only proves television has become caustically politicized.
