The Siege of Western Civilization.  © 2010 by Herbert E. Meyer. 

Are you worried about our country’s future?  About our security, our economy – and above all our culture?

Are you sick and tired of slanted news, of sound-bites, and of talking heads on television who just shout at one another?

Would you like – just once – to be talked to seriously about the problems we face and the kinds of solutions we will need to think about?

The Siege of Western Civilization is the DVD for you.

“Our cultural environment is Western Civilization.  This is who we are.  And today, Western Civilization is under siege.  We are under attack from Radical Islam – that’s the War on Terrorism.  We are under attack from those within the US itself who seek to destroy our traditional culture and our moral values – from those who believe the State is more important than the family or the individual.  And we ourselves are acting in a way that will leave our children with a bleak economic future.

We need to understand these threats, now, so we can set in place the right policies to lift this siege we are under – to save our country and by doing so to rescue Western Civilization itself.”

In this remarkable and educational 42-minute presentation Herb Meyer – former Reagan Administration senior Intelligence official, former associate editor of Fortune, author of several books and dozens of published essays about politics and economics – talks seriously about what is really going on out there:

  1. What lies behind the terrorists’ attacks on our country?

  2. How does radical Islam really threaten our survival?

  3. Why was “regime change” necessary in Iraq and Afghanistan, and what else must we do to stop terrorism once and for all?

  4. Within the US itself, are we really in the midst of a “Second Civil War” that will decide whether our traditional culture survives?

  5. Why are the Judeo-Christian concepts of marriage and family under such ferocious attack?

  6. Is this “Second Civil War” the reason our politics has become so partisan, so divisive, and so vicious?

  7. What are the economic threats that loom before us?

  8. How will the demographic crises in Western Europe and Japan hurt us?

  9. Can our economy survive its own demographic problems?

  10. Most of all, what must we do to defend civilization itself, and to assure that our children understand what Western Civilization really is and why it’s worth defending?

In The Siege of Western Civilization, Herb Meyer answers these questions, and more, in a lively, informal way.  He “connects the dots” so that you can see how today’s fast-breaking developments at home and abroad form a pattern you can understand -- and make sense of – as you follow the news.

This is a video you will want to watch again and again – and you will want your children to watch with you.

Herb Meyer's video on "The Siege of Western Civilization" is taking off among conservative Americans. The video has sold out twice in just the last month – and one students' organization recently bought 1,400 copies for distribution to all their chapters at colleges throughout the country."

“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!  This remarkable and clear presentation helps both churched and non-churched Americans understand how and why our Judeo-Christian heritage and civilization are under siege.”

"One of President Reagan's former top intelligence advisers finally pushed me into buying a DVD player this past week and I've been sitting enthralled in front of my TV for the past several nights...The fellow in question is Herb Meyer and the DVD is Meyer's own 42-minute production The Siege of Western Civilization."

"In this video Herb Meyer ties ideas together in a way that others simply can’t.  He identifies clearly and powerfully key threats to our way of life: Radical Islam, the Western world’s population decline, the divisive politics that permeates Washington – to name a few – and explains the dangers.  If you are concerned about our future, you must watch The Siege of Western Civilization."

"Herb Meyer has created a masterful composite explaining how today’s society evolved and what problems we face…This is a must-see documentary for young, impressionable minds as well as for those of us who think we know it all."

“This is an outstanding job of pulling all the pertinent trends together.”

"You have done a real service to America by producing The Siege of Western Civilization.  It covers the three main challenges we are facing, and especially lays out what the War on Terrorism really is about in a dispassionate, intellectual format.  This war that began prior to 9/11, and that is now raging in Iraq and Afghanistan, is the US and our allies versus Radical Islam.  They know that we represent the Christian West, even if so many of us don’t know it.  The Siege does a wonderful job of presenting a measured discussion of this challenge in a world history context.  Thank you for being willing to step forward and use plain English in discussing why we must win this war."

"I enjoyed The Siege very much, especially since I have been saying very similar things in discussions with my own family and friends.  Now I have something I can show them from a much more credible person with much more experience and knowledge….I want to share a little about who I am and a little about my family so you can have an idea of the Americans who are interested in what you have to say.  I am a former Marine and served during the first Gulf war, and now I’m trying to launch my own business.  My father is an LAPD homicide detective and my brother is an LA police officer.  My other brother just graduated from the fire academy.  I guess we’re just an average family concerned about our country and our way of life."
