a Battle it is Losing

"Western" Civilization, including the "Enlightenment", has a few good ideas with which to fight a hundred millenia's worth of built-up and handed-down human failings. It is a battle worth waging.

It is a battle that it is losing.

property rights
rule of law
equal justice under law
rights of englishmen (evolved)
representative democracy
limited government
applied science (overdone?)

are all losing ground to resurgent fundamentalism.

what to do?
