Losing the war of ideas
by Caroline Glick
We have arrived at the point where the consequences of the West's intellectual disarmament at the hands of political correctness begins to have disastrous consequences in the lives of hundreds of millions of people.
Speaking last month at the memorial service for the five US marines massacred at a recruiting office in Chattanooga, Tennessee, US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said, "The meaning of their killing is yet unclear, and what combination of disturbed mind, violent extremism, and hateful ideology was at work, we don't know."
US Vice President Joe Biden claimed, the "perverse ideologues...may be able to inspire a single lone wolf, but they can never, never threaten who we are."
