Deacon Garb at UNC

Ashley Thorne

Wild West killer-for-hire "Deacon" Jim Miller dressed the part of a church-going citizen.  Why does UNC Chapel Hill lecture series  on "Renewing the Western Tradition" come to mind? Peter Wood writes at NAS.org:

As Jane Shaw explains, the speakers that the committee did choose seem to interpret “renewing Western civilization” as mainly a matter of debunking, de-centering, and otherwise expressing irritation with Western civilization.  The subtext seems to be: Renew it?  Why would anyone bother?  Let’s just get on with replacing it.  For this UNC spends $15,000 per lecture, from money given by a donor who explicitly sought a positive approach to the study of Western civilization.
