I argue that across the western world in the fields of politics and sociology, the situation is bad. In the university system the subject of sociology is dominated by the radical left-wing. The mainstream media is also controlled by this school of thought. And in the arena of politics, in many western countries, we have a system of left and right-wing, two party tribalism.
I assert that both sociology and politics have fallen apart, because in these realms, the quest to find the truth has been abandoned. If we are to save these two fields we must rekindle a belief in the enlightenment. Once this happens Western society will have the tools it needs to save itself and to build a better future.
