The most obvious outcome of all of this fighting and the shifting of alliances was a competition of ideas for everything from developing improved weapons of war to advances in art and architecture to science and math. Whether it resulted in competition to build the largest cathedral or the most luxurious palace, the most accurate painting style, or the most efficient gun barrel, such advances were the fertilizer that fed modern civilization. It’s no wonder that this is where the Renaissance, the Age of Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, and advances such as flight, DNA, computers, cellphones, and the Internet originated. So too freedom of the press, speech, religion, and free markets, resulting in widespread prosperity and freedoms never before seen in human history.
All of that hangs in the balance as Western nations face the catastrophic amalgamation of the woefully uninformed left, the rapidly increasing anti-freedom Muslim populations, and increasingly despotic governments willing to abandon fundamental Western principles in their pursuit of power.
