It’s not only some of the GOP’s bad policies and believing that if they compromise with Democrats the Democrats will return the favor and compromise with them that loses the big elections for what’s left of the Grand Old Party. It’s their unwillingness to fight because they don’t believe they are in a war for the survival of civilization.
Civilization was once identified with a Christian worldview. That is beginning to slip away. Even atheist Richard Dawkins is worried:
I have mixed feelings about the decline of Christianity, in so far as Christianity might be a bulwark against something worse.
Winston Churchill considered “the Battle of Britain” to be a struggle between the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness. “Upon this battle,” he said on the 18th of June 1940, “depends the survival of Christian civilization.”1
There was a time when people understood what was at stake. Playing nice does not win wars or elections when civilization is on the line: generational theft, the maintenance of a permanent poverty class, loss of fundamental constitutional rights, the forced financing of the murder of unborn babies, overturning the definition of marriage, the persecution of people who do not agree with Big Brother, and so much more.
