The reason behind all these crimes are the coward European governments who are watching their citizens murdered without taking any action. People in Europe needs to rise to over through these corrupt governments.

It's so bad that we are seeing these ugly people destroy country after country, not one decent story do we hear from such people and we are all just standing by shaking our head as our government rolls the red carpet into our land for them.

This plays right into the narrative that Islamic terrorists want. If you believe this is a fight for Western Civilization you've done exactly what they want you to do.

Every time when there is terrorist attacks , u will definitely can see a islamist commenting saying terrorism has no religion.... When we are going to learn that Islaminism is as worst and danger as Nazizm and Communism?

This must be stopped, how it will be I don't know but, there will eventually be a backlash and when it comes a lot of innocent people will be affected.

Pop culture has already replaced Western civilization as the main attraction in our great communal circus-tent. Colorful lights and images flash all around us; monstrous amplifiers boom thunder at our tingling ears. How can Herodotus, Horace, Titian or Mendelssohn hope to survive in the infernal rumpus room of pop? How do they compete with Elvis, Madonna, Britney or whoever happens to be emitting sparks at the moment? Their prospects seem hopeless.

Greater countries in history have had their culture wiped away by war. We must make sure this country remains the way it is and that we keep our culture in tact.

All civilizations are important to the people of that region. If we were talking about any other civilization this would not even be a culture. Just because we have an over the top culture is seems does not mean we do not love our culture and won't fight for it. The consensus is that Americans are week all they care about is money they won't stand up for their religion etc. Don't let Hollywood fool you that is not the majority of the country and they will soon find this out.

This would depend on whether you think our culture is good or destructive. Looking at what the alternative would be I think it is very much worth fighting for. I do not want to live in a lawless country not know when or where the next attack is going to come from. Capitalism has been good to us and we need to make sure our culture is protected.

The dominant culture of our time isn't being produced by serious Western artists, poets and composers. No, it's the film directors, pop novelists, screenwriters and songwriters -- not to mention the profit-motivated moguls in their office towers -- who are happily driving our civilization like a hijacked Greyhound bus. And we seem to be enjoying the trip.

Absolutely. No one has to right to come over here and tell us how to live. If you do not like Western culture then there are numerous places in the world that you can go and take your kids with you. I always here the argument this country is ruining kids minds and they are exposed to too much. Our kids are fine and this is the culture and it will not be going anywhere.

Even a quick glance at the #FightForWesternCivilization hashtag reveals that these would-be defenders of Western Civilization have a very strange notion of what civilization consists of, with some taking inspiration not just from Donald Trump, their lord and master, but from such historical figures as Adolph Hitler and Augusto Pinochet. The hashtag is lousy with raging Islamaphobes and white supremacists, full of violent fantasies of retribution against the Muslim “invaders.”

Every person has the right to fight for what they believe in. If it is important to you that this country stay the same and keep the same values then yes you must fight to defend it against all change.

There is nothing wrong with Western Civilization. We must remember that the US and the west in general are new countries. This is who we are. We do not have 3000-4000 year old history hear to hold on to. This is the place for new beginnings and yes we must protect it.

This is home how do we not fight. There is no way someone is going to come over here and scare us out of our homes. We are Americans we live for the fight and the chance to prove who we are. At least we used to be that kind of people.

An original essay about why we need to learn what’s at stake, and to recognize key figures who are fighting to defend Western civilization – and those who are aiding its destroyers.

Idiots with bombs strapped to their chests have given way to idiots demanding that we abandon our values in favor of theirs and even greater idiots in government, universities, unions and the mainstream media allowing them to get away with it. Change the question from “Is the war on terror over?” to “Is the war to defend Western civilization over?

With the exception of Spain and America in the sixteenth century, I cannot think of any instance of two civilizations coming into contact after such a long period of separate development as has marked those of China and Europe. Considering this extraordinary separateness, it is surprising that mutual understanding between Europeans and Chinese is not more difficult. In order to make this point clear, it will be worth while to dwell for a moment on the historical origins of the two civilizations.

What will be the outcome of the contact of this ancient civilization with the West? I am not thinking of the political or economic outcome, but of the effect on the Chinese mental outlook. It is difficult to dissociate the two questions altogether, because of course the cultural contact with the West must be affected by the nature of the political and economic contact. Nevertheless, I wish to consider the cultural question as far as I can in isolation.

I agree with Holt that Western civilization is responsible for a lot of good in the world (and some bad, naturally). But I disagree emphatically that Trump has any standing to claim that he is"unabashedly pro-Western." A man cannot portray himself as the defender of the Enlightenment, modern Western civilization, and classical liberalism if he is desperate to undo its crowning achievements.
