One quote from it is 'At 3 months, babies look more at faces that match the race of their caregivers'. They are also the intellectual descendants of Derrick Bell, the legal theorist, Civil Rights campaigner and originator of Critical Race Theory, a body of thought that emerged in the 1970s. It does seem a peculiar trait of patriotic conservatives to be indignant in the face of resentful former colonial subjects.

Not only are these subjects spoken about but Murray gives specific examples that demonstrate his claims. One of the tweeters being a maths teacher, Murray warns of the risk that mathematical standards in education “will be lowered or expunged altogether” as a result of such ideas and reminds the reader of the obvious parallels to be found in “George Orwell’s most famous book.The scars of apartheid are still fresh and I cannot and will never defend the atrocities that took place, but as Wiesenthal says (and I paraphrase here), quoted by Murray in the book, I also cannot take responsibility for something that I didn’t do. Douglas Murray breaks down “The War on the West” by showing how the basic tenents of America’s foundation have been eroded. If you are “incapable of realizing what you have to be thankful for, you are left with nothing but your resentments and can be contented by nothing but revenge. And maybe it is all schools, but Murray can’t provide numbers so I suspect that they don’t support his assertions. Thus, in Sweeney Among the Nightingales, the spectre of Agamemnon can stalk through modern Paris, and the seediest quartiers acquire a sudden and tragic depth.

The first is that his conception of social justice extremism as a sort of Nietzschean pathology is incomplete and slightly misleading.

During the Cold War, the notion of “east vs west” made sense as a statement of geographic fact, and Putin’s war in Ukraine has reanimated the idea of “the west” as a unified military bloc. This is a sleight of hand because in juxtaposing the two quotes, Murray is trying to suggest a connection. The final part of this book describes how and why would-be Caesars come to grief, from the Gunpowder Plot to Trump's march on the Capitol and the ejection of Boris Johnson by his own MPs, and ends with a defence of the grubby glories of parliamentary politics and a thought-provoking roadmap of the way back to constitutional government. He believes that young people have been indoctrinated into an anti-western viewpoint which is uncivil, coddled, and wants to change the world by force.

Towards the end, he bemoans how the culture has been hollowed out by religious and cultural traditions being challenged and throughout complains about being unable to enjoy the endowments of west without the endowments being criticised. And, according to the "equity toolkit" published by the department, which made this claim, it is white babies that are the problem.In reality, every democracy, however sophisticated or stable it may look, has been attacked or actually destroyed by a would-be Caesar, from Ancient Greece to the present day. Murray appears regularly in the British broadcast media, commentating on issues from a conservative standpoint, and he is often critical of Islamic fundamentalism.
