How to save Western civilization from itself



By Kenneth Abramowitz, founder and president, SaveTheWest.com

We are fighting a physical and intellectual war for our existence against three enemies.

The first question to ask is, “Who is the ‘we’ in this equation?”

“We” are Western civilization, which includes primarily the U.S., Europe, and Israel. Many others share many of our values and can be included too: Latin America, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand. In terms of religions, we are primarily Christian and Jewish, but Buddhists, Hindus, and Shinto can be included too.

The second question to ask is, “Who are our enemies?”

The #1 enemy of Western civilization is us, ourselves. Collectively, we are weak believers in Western civilization, aided by the mainstream media, major universities, political correctness, and sometimes the Supreme Court. Furthermore, our excessive demands for economic security cause pressure on our political leaders to immorally fund our desires through excessive borrowing, better known as “Inter-Generational theft.”

The #2 enemy of Western Civilization is the UN and miscellaneous NGOs, as well as the International Criminal Court. At the United Nations, Russia and China have veto rights in the Security Council over American national security interests. In the General Assembly, the OIC (Office of Islamic Council) and NAM (non-aligned movement) hold voting blocks of nearly 25%. (I think this needs to be bolstered a bit; see this list of HRC members: Saudi Arabia? Pakistan? China? Cuba? Puh-leeze).

The #3 enemy of Western civilization is political Islam. In particular, there are four worldwide political Islam professional terror organizations, all of whom are determined to take over the world. In order of their danger to us, they are:

  1. Iran
  2. Al Qaeda
  3. The Muslim Brotherhood
  4. The Saudi Arabian Wahhabis

To win, we must encourage the Adults (the long-term oriented rational cavalry) to save us from the Children (short-term thinkers searching for instant gratification). The Adults must speak more forcefully and much more frequently so as to overwhelm the “crying” of the children. The Adults must also sharply criticize the Childrens’ false narratives.

To save Western civilization, we must focus on three solutions:

  1. Maximize economic growth
  2. Protect the people intellectually/culturally
  3. Protect the people physically

We’ve created three graphic slide shows that discuss five key short-term and long-term recommendations for how to advance each of these solutions:

Beneath these slide shows is a one-page printable summary of all recommendations.
