The progress of Western civilization is a direct result of its openness to self-criticism and its confidence that our aspirational principles are right and just.
Karen Siegemund, a math teacher at a private school in southern California, lost her job in May for defending Western civilization. Although she attempted to avoid triggering delicate sensibilities in class by refraining from wearing any clothing bearing an American flag to school for fear of being labeled “subversively patriotic,” she made the mistake of praising “Western civilization, and how it’s brought the greatest good to the most number of people” at an off-campus event.
What her school “deemed hostile” is simply true: Western civilization laid the intellectual foundation for liberal democracy, the freest, most stable, and most prosperous form of government known in history.
