The purpose of this study is to contrast and evaluate two different perspectives on the changes taking place in Europe. The first is Jean Baudrillard's "The Pyres of Autumn" from the New Left Review magazine. This portrays rising resistance and terrorism as evidence of the collapse of Western civilization. The second piece is George Weigel's "Europe: Two Culture Wars" from the Commentary magazine. The paper explains how Weigel takes a different stance and blames radical secularism for weakening European values and paving the way for attacks from radical outside forces.
From the Paper:"In the past several months and years, various Western European nations have undergone significant tumult from both internal stressors and external threats. Terrorism has long affected European nations, but the intensity of these attacks in European cities has increased in the last few years. Simultaneously, domestic unrest has led to riots and strikes in many nations, most recently France. Almost all critics of the situation in Western Europe agree upon this state of affairs. However, the root causes and what can be done about it (if anything) varies significantly depending on the source. The purpose of this study will be to contrast and evaluate two different perspectives on the changes taking place in Europe. The first is Jean Baudrillard's "The Pyres of Autumn" from New Left Review."
