Is there a common heritage that will cover El Greco and Hume and Dostoyevsky? Is there one that can include the Jacobites and the Jacobins? There is, but it is not racial, and white supremacists reject it because it rejects them.
The unifying heritage of Europe is religious and philosophical.
It is Jerusalem and Athens, in one famous formulation. Christian religion and Greek philosophy, filtered through Roman law and culture, are the foundation of European culture.
The tensions, agreements, developments and settlements between these have shaped the Western world, and these roots of Western civilization are not congenial to white supremacy. Christianity is universal in its message and Jewish in its origins.
Greek philosophy is likewise ill-suited to serve as a basis for white identity. It is either too universal addressing the human condition in general or too local—none of us live as citizens of an ancient Greek polis.
Later philosophical developments in Europe, such as the philosophies of the Enlightenment, likewise tend to be too universal for white supremacists seeking a tribal identity. Lapid slams Netanyahu's 'crooked priorities'.
Czech president wants to move embassy to Jerusalem Milos Zeman says that he will make every effort to move the nation's embassy to the capital. By attacking these Biblical foundations in the name of reason and human rights, the culture warriors of secularism are sawing off the branch on which they sit.
The only way to defend Western civilisation is to reaffirm and restore its Biblical foundations. We are living in an era which extols reason, science and human rights.
These are said to be essential for progress, a civilised society and the betterment of humanity.
Religion is said to be their antithesis, the source instead of superstitious mumbo-jumbo, oppression and backward-thinking. Some of this hostility is being driven by the perceived threat from Islamic terrorism and the Islamisation of Western culture.
However, this animus against religion has far deeper roots and can be traced back to what is considered the birthplace of Western reason, the 18th-century Enlightenment. Actually, it goes back specifically to the French Enlightenment.
In England and Scotland, the Enlightenment developed reason and political liberty within the framework of Biblical belief. In France, by contrast, anti-clericalism morphed into fundamental hostility to Christianity and to religion itself. Perfecting society But this Enlightenment did not remove religion so much as pervert it.
It took millenarian fantasies, the idea that the perfection of the world was at hand, and it secularised them. Instead of God producing heaven on earth, it would be mankind which would bring that about.Be suspicious of claims made by Muslims against the srmvision.com That aside, I would condemn anyone accosting someone wearing a Che Guevara/hammer and sickle T-shirt or a swastika, as well as wearing an Islamo-headscarf.
