The Fantasy of Progressivism- A Sewer of Death

  W. R. Collier Jr- Some 80 plus years ago Oswald Spengler, in his “Man and Technics”, described the final form of “materialism” a civilization takes before it enters a dead Caesarism which he felt had been expressed in the 18th and 19th centuries but which would give way to the fascism of the 1930’s which, though he was no fan of fascism, he felt was inevitable. Spengler was prescient but wrong, at the same time. While he described a genuine philosophy of “materialism”, rooted in Hegel and Marx’s interpretation of Hegel, he failed to see that this ideology as a rebellion against morality had not taken root in the masses, but only among the elite. It is for our day that what he called materialism, and which I describe, I think more accurately, as libertine collectivism has become so general that in much of Western Civilization it has displaced faith and morality as surely as it has replaced science and reason, it’s constant claims to be “scientific” notwithstanding.

For all of our advancement in self-governance, the rule of law, and the betterment of people’s lives, the world stands in crisis. Our actions toward evil, twisted brands of militant, Islamic, Jihadism in the coming months will determine how humanity navigates the coming century. As Will Durant correctly predicts—we must either prevent the death of civilized life or become savages again. Responding to the Paris attacks, French President Francois Hollande is correct in saying, “enough is enough.” The coalition of willing defenders of humanity is immense. The world looks toward America for our leadership. Why? Why does it have to be us people ask? For the same reason we ask a trusted colleague for counsel; for the same reason a resident asks a neighbor to help him with a...
