Back in 1964, when James Burnham wrote hs classic "Suicide of the West: An Essay in the Meaning and Destiny of Liberalism" (still one of the best dissections of the Libs ever done), he was writing about Communism and the eagerness of many liberals to succumb to its "charms." In the event, the suicide attempt failed, thanks largely to a Conservative named Ronald Reagan. But the sad fact is that here we are, nearly half a century later, and the West -- still essentially Liberal -- is still trying, still doing everything it can to snuff out its own life. A world serious about its survival would have put the kibosh on this Iranian nonsense a long time ago. The suicide of the West is still -- very much - a work in progress.
