The Objectivist Club at NYU Presents Why We Are Losing the War: Five Years After 9/11 with Dr. John D. Lewis

Five years after Manhattan was viciously attacked by Islamic holy warriors, the world is still held hostage to their rants and their bombs. Iraq is in turmoil, Syria is emboldened, and Iran, in pursuit of nuclear weapons, intends to wipe Israel off the map and destroy the Great Satan—America. What went wrong? This lecture will show how our failure to identify the ideology of our enemies—Islamic Totalitarianism—has made it impossible to confront them. Drawing on the lessons of America’s victory over Japan, this lecture will challenge us to reject our assumptions about the nature of a “just war,” and to demand the removal, by force, of Islamic Totalitarianism—State Islam—from the face of the earth.

Dr. John Lewis is in the Department of History and Political Science at Ashland University in Ohio. He holds a PhD in classics from the University of Cambridge, a BA in history from the University of Rhode Island, and an Anthem Fellowship for Objectivist Scholarship. He is the author of Solon the Thinker: Political Thought in Archaic Athens, and is now completing a new book, Nothing Less Than Victory: Military Offense and the Lessons of History.
