From rule of law to liberal democracy to the scientific method, “everything we think of as modernity is Western in origin,” says author and journalist Douglas Murray. “And the West has given them to the rest of the world not because they’re racist, but because they work.”

Murray’s latest book is titled “The War on the West.”

“It’s a war on the West’s history, its traditions. All of its philosophical and religious traditions are being torn down,” Murray says.

And while many in the West engage in these “games of self-immolation,” the rest of the world is watching.

“I suppose some people might think is strange, but I have this view that an American-led century is much more preferable to a Chinese Communist Party-led century.”
