Faculty Publications and Presentations

Western civilization is succumbing to the false fruits of cultural revolutions to which it has consented at each stage of their development. Why do revolutions succeed? They succeed in part because the passing of a single generation is all it takes to wipe the slate and in part because the guardians let down their guard.

Roger Scruton: The West And The Rest Study Guide, Steven Alan Samson Jan 2007

Roger Scruton: The West And The Rest Study Guide, Steven Alan Samson

Faculty Publications and Presentations
