Right you are. Also, I did take "Intellectual Traditions of The West" as it was called at the university I attended. That wasn't so long ago to recognize that both the professor and the curriculum were heavily influenced by liberalism. Not all countries that "embrace" the western tradition are governed equally.
I'm not sure what to make of this comment "If western society doesn't instill, again I'm using the world inculcate the values that have made the west so peaceful and prosperous through schools, through the media, through academia, through every possible peaceful channel of educating minds. What happens is you have a vacuum." I wonder what she would identify as the "values" that have made the west so peaceful and prosperous. The utopia seeking, anti-establishment ideologues of the sixties and seventies that now dominate academia and pop-culture, and to a large extent politics, have been telling us now for decades that they are the purveyors of the kind of values we ought to hold. Meanwhile they have been systematically attacking the institutions that support traditional values. These include the traditional family, Judeo-Christian philosophy and the constitution. How will we ever win this war if we aren't willing to call evil by it name, wherever it appears, and continue to cower down behind our post-modern, multicultural dogmas or whatever the value du jour happens to be?
