“Through many centuries, civilizations have rejected Athens and Jerusalem and they have collapsed into dust. Once, the USSR have rejected Greek natural law and Judeo-Christian values. They substituted a new utopian version of what “social justice” is. They have starved and slaughtered millions of humans in the altar of social justice. The Nazis have also rejected Greek natural law and Judeo-Christian values. They have shoved men, women, children, and the elderly into gas chambers. Venezuela have also rejected the same laws and values as the citizens of their oil-rich nation got reduced to eating dogs. In his book The Right Side of History: How Reason and Moral Purpose Made the West Great, Ben Shapiro explains that humanity is in the process of abandoning the Greek natural law and Judeo-Christian values. Instead, we are favoring the rule of passion and moral subjectivism. As we watch our modern civilization collapse into individualistic hedonism, age-old tribalism, and moral subjectivism, we get satisfied with scientific materialism, or intersectionality, or authoritarian governance, or progressive politics, or nationalistic solidarity. Ben Shapiro says that we can’t. He explains why the West is special. Too many of the Westerners have lost sight of their moral purpose and motivation to be better. They also forget their sacred duty to work together for the greater good. Ben Shapiro writes a stark warning, and a final call to spiritual arms, The Right Side of History may be the first step in bringing our civilization back on the right track.”
