The West, or Western Civilization is in serious decline, and may be on the verge of extinction. In all honesty and candor, we are compelled to refer to the West today as post-Christian as no authentically Christian culture or nation would permit, much less celebrate, all the great moral evils that are ingrained now in our societies in the West.

How do you quantify in mere money terms the psychological, emotional, and spiritual harm that is being experienced by millions today in the decadent, demoralized West?!
What have liberals done, what role have they played in this precipitous and terribly destructive civilizational decline? (For our purposes, liberals, progressives, and Leftists are all the same thing. If that lacks nuance, deal with it.)

Being liberal means that you can violently attack what you do not agree with, and you can attack those who dare to disagree with you. Classic totalitarian tactics on display.
Censorship in Finland when illiberal liberals and progressives complained about a film that dared to address the heavy price that Finns have paid (and continue to pay) for the continuing immigrant invasion of Europe:
