The left’s young radicals will be no more forgiving to the liberal elites than the populists will. In the end, they too will turn on those who led them to ruin.
Jonah Goldberg’s defense of the legacy of the Enlightenment ends up being mostly a rehearsal of boilerplate 20th-century American conservatism.
The distinguishing feature of modern Europe is its persistent ennui, shown in the inability or unwillingness ‘to reproduce itself, fight for itself or even take its own side in an argument.’
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.
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.
