We see man’s walking on the moon as a high point of the growth of Western Civilization, but is the high point really something so material? What of the defeat of Soviet materialism in 1990? And what now of Chinese Communism, which wants to challenge US economic success? China is building economic centers in Belarus, trying to make inroads in the fringes of the West.
They are unaware of the West’s intellectual and immaterial foundation, it’s Judeo-Christian heritage, responsible for its development so far. We pray for a repeat victory, as in 1990, as we wait with bated breath.
