Social breakdown in the western world, manifest in the recent orgy of rioting in Britain, is the inevitable consequences of a society based on an ideology of individualism, consumerism and the “pursuit of happiness.” Weber cites an analysis by an outstanding British historian, Max Hastings, author of worthwhile books about World War II.

Weber also talks about “Breaker Morant,” a memorable 1980 Australian film about a shameful episode of the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902. British imperialists and businessmen, together with Jewish financiers and “gold bugs,” conspired to launch the rapacious and unnecessary conflict. Waging the war with “methods of barbarism,” the British established internment centers, which they called “concentration camps.” Some 28,000 people, most of them infants and children, perished in the squalid camps.
