Excellent article. Ryan McMaken has always impressed me. There is much, much more than just the Western in this article. It is really a radical rethinking of history, in which both the modern left and right are seen to be way off.

The 19th C. bourgeois values that are the bedrock of classical liberalism are what we should all be fighting for. I like they way he tied women in as co-creators of this civilizations. There will always be tensions, of course, which is why the Western still has its place.
