The Right Side of History
The Right Side of History: How Reason and Moral Purpose Made the West Great is a 2019 book by American conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro. Shapiro was inspired to write the book after an incident at California State University, Los Angeles in which a speech he was giving was disrupted by protesters.
In the book, Shapiro argues that Western civilization is experiencing a crisis and a potential downfall. He asserts that by abandoning Judeo-Christian values and the Greek-born faculty of reason, modern society is hastening this demise, that hedonism and rampant materialism have made humankind susceptible to failure, and that the only way to reverse this decline is to return to the values and faculties that helped shape the Western civilization.The book became the #1 non-fiction book on both Amazon and The New York Times Best Seller list within one week of its release. Reception of the book's coverage of philosophy and history, as well as the arguments presented within it, was mixed.
