“..As the West’s liberal democracies are undermined from within by academia’s cultural Marxism, they are also threatened by Islamic fundamentalism — twin perils that make the establishment of a foundation to champion Western civilisation not merely timely but absolutely vital.
There’s no doubt that Western liberal democracies such as Australia, the UK, France, Germany and the United States are under attack. In Melbourne and Sydney Islamic extremists have killed innocents, and the Islamization of the UK and Europe is leading to ethnic ghettos and home-grown terrorism.
