Excerpt from Chapter 1 of my new book.
Harvard adjunct professor and eminent historian, Niall Ferguson, in his highly acclaimed book, Civilization: the West and the Rest, declares:
We are living through the end of 500 years of Western ascendancy.
Professor Ferguson goes on to say:
I warned that the United States had imperceptibly come to rely on East Asian capital to fund its unbalanced current and fiscal accounts. The decline and fall of America’s undeclared empire might therefore be due not to terrorists at the gates, nor to the rogue regimes that sponsor them, but to a financial crisis at the very heart of the empire itself.
Internationally renowned social commentator and author Mark Steyn, in his bestseller America Alone: the End of the World as we Know it, issued this ominous warning:
Much of what we loosely call the Western world will not survive the twenty-first century and much of it will effectively disappear within our lifetimes, including many if not most European countries.
Dutch politician and outspoken critic of Islam, Geert Wilders, issued this dire warning:
We are facing a determined enemy who is striving through all means to destroy the West and snuff out our traditions of free thought, free speech, and freedom of religion. Make no mistake: if we fail we will be enslaved.
The West has implacable enemies ranged against it. They are highly motivated, highly resourced and highly organised. As well as threats from enemies, Western nations face grave dangers financially from generations of welfarism and fiscal irresponsibility.
As well as physical threats from terrorists and rogue states, the West is embroiled in another Cold War. This war is a war of ideas, of infiltration, propaganda and cultural destruction from enemies within the gates. Tragically, Western authorities don’t even realise they are at war.
At a time Western nations are losing faith in their great civilisation, they face mortal enemies on a number of fronts.
