Ricardo Duchesne – Radical Liberal Norms That Lead to the Decline of the West – Hour 1

Switching gears, we discuss rationalism, liberalism, universalism. We begin by discussing Ricardo’s academic career, which has been slightly complicated by his opposition to the reigning Leftist status quo. He is one of the co-editors and principal writer of the blog Council of European Canadians. Ricardo returns to Red Ice for an engrossing conversation on multiculturalism, history, and liberalism. He just completed a manuscript with the tentative title “Mass Immigration, Diversity, and the Destruction of Canada”. He is the only academic in Canada, and possibly the Western world, who rejects totally the diversification of Western nations in favour of European Ethnic Identity. Later, we ruminate on Asian immigration into Canada, which Ricardo cites as a threat. The first hour concludes with an explanation as to why Canada is not, contrary to what many believe, a nation of immigrants. Ricardo then reminds us that most classical liberal values originally had an ethnic component. Ricardo explains that some academics vocally oppose feminism, but it’s rare to find one speaking out against multiculturalism. In the members’ hour, we switch gears to discuss the Alt-Right and Western history. Our show concludes with a discussion on Trump’s presidency thus far, and what we can expect to see from him in the future.

Next, Ricardo outlines four post-WWII norms that have contributed to the ongoing decline of Western civilization. Ricardo critiques some common perspectives on liberalism found in the Alt-Right, arguing that we should be careful not to condemn the West overall when discussing the causes of its current crisis.
