The Tragedy of Replacing God with Unchecked Democracy

I’m not sure how conservative Americans will view the recently-published book Democracy as a Neocon Trick by Alexander Boot.

It’s an unusual work: whereas critics of America are generally on the political Left while those on the Right defend it, this is a criticism of the U.S. from a non-Leftist viewpoint, indeed from a traditional, conservative, Christian, pre-Enlightenment viewpoint…

Born in Soviet Russia, Alexander Boot emigrated to the USA in 1973 and then to Britain in 1988…

You don’t find many thinkers these days with Boot’s ideas, so he needs an introduction.

For some time I’ve regretted the lack of a constructive alternative to the Left’s program. Islam is a major problem, but it’s only a symptom. Why did the West throw its doors wide open to it?  What’s the disease of which Islamisation, multiculturalism, political correctness and all our other social evils are symptoms?

Boot provides the general framework we need. It’s not just a critique of Islam, or socialism, feminism, environmentalism, “gay rights”, EU, unrestricted immigration, welfare state, public education, nationalised healthcare, our degenerate culture and corrupt political system, although it’s all of these things…

    .“Tolerance is the last virtue of a depraved society. When an immoral society has blatantly and proudly violated all the commandments, it insists upon one last virtue, tolerance for its immorality. It will not tolerate condemnation of its perversions. It creates a whole new world in which only the intolerant critic of intolerable evil is evil.” Hutton Gibson
