Murray addressed discordant understandings of American history and philosophical first principles between the left and right.
“Between these two views, it’s increasingly clear there isn’t very much ability to find common ground,” determined Murray, “because if you’ve never done anything good, then you most likely can’t in the future if you act on what you already have, and that’s why I say that if you can’t agree on the nature of your past, you don’t have a future.”
Murray continued, “There are people now who simply don’t seem to notice that the American Civil War happened, or that America spent many decades going over the issue of slavery. A new generation believes that didn’t happen.”
Left-wing activism is “a new religion that is being forced onto America,” Murray assessed. He described leftism as providing “purpose for existence” in lieu of traditional institutions and norms being undermined.
