Prager: Why The Left Loathes Western Civilization

Dennis Prager is really at the top of his game when he analyzes the political left and all matters concerning morality. He is a very sensible student of human nature, and I quite enjoy all of his writings and particularly his Prager University videos, but his essays on the political left really nail the exact essence of the evil we are up against.

Read the whole thing. 

"Why is the left hostile toward Western civilization?"

"After decades of considering this question, I have concluded the answer is this: standards."

"The left hates standards — moral standards, artistic standards, cultural standards. The West is built on all three, and it has excelled in all three. Why does the left hate standards? It hates standards because when there are standards, there is judgment. And leftists don't want to be judged."

"And finally, we come to the left's loathing of the religions of Western civilization — the Judeo-Christian religions, which have clear standards of right and wrong."

"Bible-based religions affirm a morally judging God. For the left, that is anathema. For the left, the only judging allowed is leftists' judging of others. No one judges the left — neither man nor God."
