Whether or not you trust William Barr, the former Attorney General of the United States under President Donald J. Trump, readers should carefully analyze what he recently said about Western Civilization to determine whether he has made an actionable point.
Because if Barr is correct, our freedom-loving society is under urgent danger.
To begin with, what is “Western Civilization?
According to leading scholars on the subject, Western civilization refers to the art, literature, culture, and enduring ideas that emerged from the eastern Mediterranean basin in the centuries before the common era, developed in myriad forms during the Middle Ages, and finally took on its modern form after the Renaissance.

Barr is a 72-year-old American lawyer who served as the 77th and 85th attorney general of the United States. Born and raised in New York City, he graduated from The George Washington University Law School in 1977.
Barr will publish a book titled One Damn Thing After Another: Memoirs of an Attorney General in 2022.
