Cultural Wars, and the United Nations

The Iranian president is headed to the United Nations. He is being embraced by those who are seeking tolerance at the detriment of the West and its values. In fact, I just heard on a radio program where the U.N.'s goals are to redistribute weatlth without teaching accountability or self responsibility.

The West bases its understanding on Reason, while the East loves the intuitive. Some want to think that this is "spirit". I'm not so sure. We must commit to what we value most and think is most important. Without the freedoms that our civilization holds dear, there will be little else to value. And certainly we can't go so far as to ignore the Holocost as a historical fact!
