Yes, Virginia, Civilizations Do Sometimes Clash
Scruton is close to being the Edmund Burke of our time. His political conservatism is a mere epiphenominal manifestation of his full awareness that "community" is the condition of man; and he argues here that as community is weakened by an untethered individualism--and by materialistic gorging as well as estrangement from religious meanings--we rouse two reactions in the Islamic world. They are: fear and rage. This being so we are, to a certainty, caught up in a "clash of civilizations" and we had best gird ourselves for the long struggle.Was this review helpful?
