Is The West History? Can Western Civilization Survive? Genius of Western Civilization - Episode 6

"The West is the New Culture Forum's landmark six-part documentary series exploring the history, achievements and genius of Western civilisation. Inspired by legendary TV programmes such as Civilisation, Kenneth Clark's 1969 masterpiece, The West is a bold reminder of who we are -- and why our culture is worth defending. Episode 6: Is The West History? It has become easy, almost tempting to imagine the West in decline. In this concluding episode, Marc Sidwell argues that the West’s distributed, individual energy keeps it vibrant and capable of reinvention – so long as it does not lose touch with its own roots. The episode traces the two paths taken by the Enlightenment to illustrate the point. One path rejected Western tradition and led to totalitarianism, gulags and mass death. The other, consciously rooted in the Western past, produced the American dream, peace and plenty. Episode 1: Liberty or Death: • Genius of Western Civilization - Ep. ... Episode 2: The Christian Revolution: • Genius of Western Civilization - Ep. ... Episode 3: The Rule of Law: • Genius of Western Civilisation - Ep. ... Episode 4: The Invention of Science: • Genius of Western Civilization - Ep. ... Episode 5: How Did The West Get So Rich?: • How Did the West REALLY Get So Rich? ... Episode 6: Is The West History? ABOUT THE SERIES: In six 30-40 minute episodes, The West offers a brand new, panoramic account of our extraordinary, unconventional civilisation.

The West is written and presented by Marc Sidwell, Senior Fellow at the New Culture Forum and author of the NCF's critically acclaimed book: "The Long March: How the Left Won the Culture War and What To Do About it"." from video introduction
