The September 11 anniversary naturally prompts us to recall the events on that date in 2001. A dozen years having passed, the memories have faded of the horror inflicted on thousands of innocent people by fanatics who believe that killing innocents is moral and ideologically desirable.
If we fail to remember such an event and reflect upon the mentality and intensity of its perpetrators, we risk slouching back into a state of psychological disarmament that can augur nothing but ill for our country. Recollection produces vigilance, and prompts us to maintain the intellectual toughness and professional skill necessary to prevent such monstrosities from ever happening again.
Where so much of American academia has junked the study of political, diplomatic, military, and economic history, we at IWP strive to keep it alive for the defense of our civilization.
May God bless all those who have sacrificed so much in defense of our country, and let me take this opportunity to thank all of you for your support of our vital mission.
