RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY

Summary

The New York Times bestselling author and outspoken conservative commentator considers the state of the West today, asking why, if our lives have never been better than at any time in history, our political, social, and economic situation is beginning to erode, threatened by rising illiberalism, relativism, nationalism, and authoritarianism.

Western Civilization is in the midst of a crisis of purpose and ideas. Our freedoms are built upon the twin notions that every human being is made in God’s image and that human beings were created with reason capable of exploring God’s world. These values have made possible the birth of science, the dream of progress, the empowerment of human rights, rising prosperity, longstanding peace, and the appreciation of artistic beauty. The tenets of two magnificent civilizations—Jerusalem and Athens—built America, ended slavery, defeated the Nazis and the Communists, lifted billions from poverty, and gave billions spiritual purpose. Jerusalem and Athens were the foundations of the Magna Carta and the Treaty of Westphalia; the Declaration of Independence, Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, and Martin Luther King Jr.’s Letter from Birmingham Jail. Civilizations that rejected Jerusalem and Athens—from the USSR to Nazi Germany to modern Venezuela—have not lasted.

The Right Side of History examines the rise and all-too-possible fall of Western civilization, as forces on both the left and right move to abandon Judeo-Christian values and Greek natural law—replacing them with moral subjectivism, nationalism, and the rule of passion. If this trend is allowed to take greater hold, Ben Shapiro warns, we will witness our civilization and all of its achievements collapse as tribalism, individualistic hedonism, and moral subjectivism reemerge.

Too many of us have lost sight of the moral purpose that drives us each to be better, or the sacred duty to work together for the greater good, or both. A stark warning, and a call to spiritual and intellectual arms, The Right Side of History is the first step in reclaiming our civilization and getting it back on track.
