The Right Side of History



The Right Side of History America has a God shaped hole in its heart, argues New York Times bestselling author Ben Shapiro, and we shouldn t fill it with politics and hate In 2016, Ben Shapiro spoke at UC Berkeley Hundreds of police officers were required from 10 UC campuses across the state to protect his speech, which was ironically about the necessity for free speech and rational debate He came to argue that 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 We can thank these values for the birth of science, the dream of progress, human rights, prosperity, peace, and artistic beauty 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 they were the foundations of Declaration of Independence, Abraham Lincoln s Emancipation Proclamation, and Martin Luther King Jr s Letter from Birmingham Jail.Civilizations that rejected Jerusalem and Athens have collapsed into dust The USSR rejected Judeo Christian values and Greek natural law, substituting a new utopian vision of social justice and they starved and slaughtered tens of millions of human beings The Nazis rejected Judeo Christian values and Greek natural law, and they shoved children into gas chambers Venezuela rejects Judeo Christian values and Greek natural law, and citizens of their oil rich nation have been reduced to eating dogs We are in the process of abandoning Judeo Christian values and Greek natural law, favoring instead moral subjectivism and the rule of passion And we are watching our civilization collapse into age old tribalism, individualistic hedonism, and moral subjectivism We believe we can reject Judeo Christian values and Greek natural law and satisfy ourselves with intersectionality, or scientific materialism, or progressive politics, or authoritarian governance, or nationalistic solidarity We can t.The West is special, and in The Right Side of History, Ben Shapiro bravely explains that it s because 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 arms, this book may be the first step in getting our civilization back on track Free Download Books The Right Side of History by Ben Shapiro – bluevapours.co.uk

    I wanted to like this book I believe the judeo Christian tradition to be a powerful framework to guide our living However, the book was filled with logical fallacies, false equivalencies, spurious correlations, half truths, and cherry picking of ideas For example, the author repeatedly makes causal claims based only on the fact that one event happened before the other He believes the enlightenment was only possible with judeo Christian values, but ignores the scientific advancement of non Eu I wanted to like this book I believe the judeo Christian tradition to be a powerful framework to guide our living However, the book was filled with logical fallacies, false equivalencies, spurious correlations, half truths, and cherry picking of ideas For example, the author repeatedly makes causal claims based only on the fact that one event happened before the other He believes the enlightenment was only possible with judeo Christian values, but ignores the scientific advancement of non European civilizations He consistently misrepresents the arguments of the left In one example, he critiques intersectionality with a clear misunderstanding of the construct Other times he dismisses logic other than his own a priori and provides no explanation and seems to fundamentally misunderstand the role of premises in formulating coherent logic His mishandling of basic logic is exemplified by his spending so much time creating ...

    I can t believe I just gave a 5 star rating to my ideological opponent s book, but it it well deserved.You don t have to agree with everything written to derive tremendous value from it.

    I always enjoy reading works of authors with whom I likely have little in common, at least when it comes to social and policy positions Ben Shapiro is someone frequently cited as the most prominent thinkers of one side of the political divide, and based on the shear number yes I intend that spelling, I m calling them sheep of people I see offloading their own critical thinking to him I suppose that is true So, even though I was quite annoyed with the extended rant style of his previous books I always enjoy reading works of authors with whom I likely have little in common, at least when it comes to social and policy positions Ben Shapiro is someone frequently cited as the most prominent thinkers of one side of the political divide, and based on the shear number yes I intend that spelling, I m calling them sheep of people I see offloading their own critical thinking to him I suppose that is true So, even though I was quite annoyed with the extended rant style of his previous books on academia, ignoring the fact that he has made a recent career over campus protests of his speeches even though he is a hugely frequent speaker at campuses across the country and boasts of his academic credentials in every bio while at the same time claiming that institutions of higher learning are leftist indoctrination camps, I decided to give this recent work of historical summation a try The main problem with this work is that it doesn t really...

    Shapiro s title for The Right Side of History was a little off putting when I first saw it announced Being so steeped in studying the philosophical presumptions of contemporary progressivism, as Shapiro certainly is, I tend to conflate the rhetoric of progress and the titular right side of history with Marx s delusions of historical materialism and the inevitability of a Communist future On the contrary, Marx co opted these ideas from religious teleology and transformed them into his philo Shapiro s title for The Right Side of History was a little off putting when I first saw it announced Being so steeped in studying the philosophical presumptions of contemporary progressivism, as Shapiro certainly is, I tend to conflate the rhetoric of progress and the titular right side of history with Marx s delusions of historical materialism and the inevitability of a Communist future On the contrary, Marx co opted these ideas from religious teleology and transformed them into his philosophy of conceit Like with so many other ideas in this book, Shapiro helped me recognize the Judeo Christian foundation that ...

    I am a big fan of Ben Shapiro I listen to his podcast most days I find him intellectually honest He brings conservatism back to its fundamentals In fact, I could say that I agree with him on 90% of his policy and reasoning.This book presents an extremely important premise Western civilization, which is built of Greek reason and Judeo Christian values, is one of a kind It brought us several core beliefs which eventually led to the foundation and the success of the United States Losing thos I am a big fan of Ben Shapiro I listen to his podcast most days I find him intellectually honest He brings conservatism back to its fundamentals In fact, I could say that I agree with him on 90% of his policy and reasoning.This book presents an extremely important premise Western civilization, which is built of Greek reason and Judeo Christian values, is one of a kind It brought us several core beliefs which eventually led to the foundation and the s...

    This won t be a long review I ve been down this road before.Let me say up front that I m not in blanket agreement with everything in this book That said I wish I could simply get everyone to read it thoughtfully It is not the most valuable book you ll ever read It is not the most insightful book you ll ever read It is however a well written book that deals with ideas and facts that need to be considered There are simple facts here that few are aware oftoday.I have so often reviewed bo This won t be a long review I ve been down this road before.Let me say up front that I m not in blanket agreement with everything in this book That said I wish I could simply get everyone to read it thoughtfully It is not the most valuable book you ll ever read It is not the most insightful book you ll ever read It is however a well written book that deals with ideas and facts that need to be considered There are simple facts here that few are aware oftoday.I have so often reviewed books that tend to come down largely on the conservative side of history and political thought I know going in that a large number of people will simply dismiss the book while never cracking the cover We are as a societyandoften throwing the baby out with the bathwater.I know that s a cliched saying but cliches become cliches because someone came up with a good way to say something and then it gets repeatedand final...
