You guys don’t comprehend many people’s“formative”years were a living hell. Until western civilization comes to grips with paying reparations to the ancestors of the Atlantic Slave trade it has no integrity. You’re just giving lip service to all your lofty ideals.

“Happy people vote Republican” - pull the other one Dennis ! It’s because so many people were unhappy with their lot , feeling they had been let down by the Democrats (whether they were justified in that claim) that they voted for Trump in the first place - culminating with extremists in their party storming the Capitol on Jan 6th. Not that I condone such behavior nor ever voted for Trump.

It’s ironic that Douglas Murray extols the virtue of religion, when most religions condemn homosexuality.. It’s thanks to secular values that the standards of living in the West are so much better than religious countries (as well as Communist ones).

Much as I respect Murray, PragerU is a mouth piece for billionaires. They have a great video on how burning fossil fuels is only a good thing. When Billionaires’ World Views Take Over. They do great billionaire propaganda videos like this.... Just take the title of the video Fossil Fuels: The Greenest Energy..... how is that possibly the greenest energy? Propaganda video, nothing more.

We elected Trump... who ran on the ticket of, "Make America Great Again." Well, what the hell does that mean in a country being totally taken over by radical Marxists? It's like a guy running against Hitler at the height of the Holocaust under the message, "Create more national forests in Germany." Wrong message at the wrong time. Trump screwed up... by acting like the insanity of the Left was just some sideshow-annoyance that distracted him from his main agendas-- lowering taxes, getting fairer trade deals, securing our boarders, etc. The writing was on the wall by the 3rd week of his term-- certainly after his first impeachment. The Left have declared total political war against us... so we either drop everything, and put all of our resources into fighting back... or we're going to get taken over before 10 miles of any wall get's constructed. And that's exactly what happened. We didnt go to total political war with them... and as a result; we got steamrolled. Now look where we are-- total bitches to the Left. Next time someone comes at you with a baseball bat... you might want to put down what you're doing and focus all your energy into stopping them before it's too late.

6:52 This is brilliant. People who have experienced nothing but the spoils of 20th century western civilization have absolutely no idea how hard it was to get here sociologically, economically, and technologically. Which is why so many in the west believe that anyone, in the west or otherwise, who isn't experiencing the same level of comfort that they themselves are must be oppressed or a victim of some outside force.

I was a San Francisco Democratic Party foot soldier until about three years ago when suddenly I was a rapist and slaveowner because I was born a straight white dude. My ancestors owned slaves? My ancestors came to America on Pan Am😆. Rapist? Looking at random attractive women walking down the street doesn't make you a rapist.

I sympathise with the dog on the carpet. What a life ! Karl Popper told our class at Brandeis in 1970 that he was told by an American philosophy professor "I would not dare speak as simply as you dare". Popper was illustrating to us the phoniness of the talk of many "philosophy" professors who speak in complicated ways in order to impress or confuse their listeners.

Good to listen to people who believe in once valued cultural traits, and what scriptures name as fruits of the Spirit: love , joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, temperence, meekness. These are traits which are necessary for a civilized society to thrive. This is though counter to the survivalist type socialist or fascist countries. If we do not exalt truth, and and public discussion as we had in times past, we could very well have reached the tipping point. We do not know what "statesmen" are, we only see opportunists politicians. I will say this: hatred of Trump blinds many to the the possibility that he is genuine. They trust no one, but why do they trust the Obama's, Clintons, Bidens, or Harris's?

The closing comments are so very true. In Reagan’s farewell address he spoke of the pride he had in a renewed sense of patriotism. I think this is a big God shaped hole that the left wants to hollow out. As a person who loves his country I even feel this despair at the thought that more of my countrymen hate their country than love it. It even makes me want to shrink my defenses to the borders of my state or even to my front door. How can we love a place that hates itself? We’ve got to reverse this self loathing educational system. It is job number 1 and 2. Then the dirty work can begin when all hands are on deck.

Western democracies are committing suicide by design. Leftists planned this. They want you to be dependent on government from birth to death. Thank God Asian countries who are rising do not tolerate wokeness and leftist activism. Western democracies have diluted their culture and values by allowing the world into the nations but never asking for assimilation or acceptance of the culture. My family moved to the UK in then 60’s and we loved becoming British and we gratefully embraced the culture of the country that gave us a better life.. However today everyone comes in for the benefits and the economy but never become part of the country and it’s culture.

For about 20 years, young people have adopted the idea that there is no need to actually know anything, because you can find the answer to any question with Google and Wikipedia. One of the many problems is you have to know things in order to formulate a useful question.

Courage comes from knowing that certain things you cannot buy, replace, find an alternative to or live without and these things can be stripped away from you and leave you desolate, empty and insignificant. Knowing this one would rather die trying to keep that which feeds his soul than settle for emptiness. That is where courage is formed.

"The privilege game is never ending and nobody can really work out how you do it." Exactly! they count up one persons 'oppressions' and count up another persons 'privileges' and try to set them at each others throats. The truth is, every one of us has some of those 'oppressions' and some of those 'privileges' in our lives. I'm Christian, white and 'straight.' Those count as 'privileges' that can be used against me, getting me. I'm also a woman, I'm old, grew up with domestic violence and divorce, then raised by my divorced Mom who worked long hours outside the home desperately trying to make ends met, low income myself all these years later, disabled. Those are all 'oppression' cards I see routinely played in the game. I refuse to play the game. I have happiness, peace and gratitude in my life and in my heart. I have Jesus. I feel that I'm successful in my life in my own way, which many people don't understand. Because they think we're supposed to all be miserable at best, and angry at worst.

I grew up in a home always aware of the Holocaust, always interested and informed about American history. My parents talked of current events and past events of their youth. They read newspapers. I remember Eichmann's capture and trial when I was a small child. If you haven't grown up in an informed and aware home, you will grow up ignorant.
