This is an article well worth thinking about. IMO, western civ. should be the gold standard and we should never let its attributes of fairness and openness defeat it greatness. Hopefully it isn't too late to save.

Freedom is the innate good for mankind that Christianity fostered and nurtured and it evolved into what we now refer to as Western Civilization. Some people take pride in being among the minority KGB representatives determined to destroy what he cannot understand.

I think it was Gandhi who was asked what he thought about Western Civilization.

He replied, 'it would be a good idea,' implying that it hadn't been tried. Gandhi as jokester, who knew?
