Today's postcolonial rhetoric fuels deep resentment and extreme criticism of the British Empire's impact on Western Civilization. The hybrid offspring of Postmodernism and Critical Theory's ideology has so deeply infected the West that it has metastasized into a terminal disease from which no major organ has escaped. Make no mistake, the death of Western Civilization is the goal and all "critical social justice" endeavors are the "necessary" means to this end.
Remarkably, though, despite all of it's flaws (along with every other society known to man), the British Empire is the only Power in the world that ever confronted slavery, and not only put an end to it but fought it to the furthest corners of the earth. Power in itself is not evil. especially when those who wield it choose justice. If justice is desired, then someone has to have the power to effect it. Thankfully, the British Empire had a change of heart in the midst of the Atlantic Slave Trade, and in the zenith of its power it chose justice and used the full weight of its force and wealth by taking bold action throughout the world.
Don't miss this politically incorrect episode! Despite the fact that it stands counter to the prevailing vision of the day, it stands with the force of truth in the face of fiction. You could say that it is an "anti-vision."
With permission from Encounter books I am reading through Thomas Sowell's essay, "The Real History of Slavery" as printed in Black Rednecks and White Liberals. Each "Fact or Fiction" podcast segment is approximately 10 minutes. The whole series will probably end up being approximately 17 episodes long.
