The rallying cry we need: Stand, Men of the West

Last night I came across an article written by Stephen M. Klugewicz from the site “The Imaginative Conservative.” It struck me right to the core because I believe it is the rallying cry we need: “Stand, Men of the West.”
This is our moment, and history will remember our actions and how we did stand.
We cannot listen to the voices of defeatism nor believe the enemy is greater than us. Our cause is a just cause — it has always been — as liberty and freedom is the moral cause of mankind.
Here in our time, the enemies of liberty, foreign and domestic, seek to subjugate us, but they shall not be victorious. Every action we take, great or small, will lead to our ultimate victory. Setbacks are only temporary and will build us towards the final end: triumph.
Mr. Klugewicz writes, our conservative tendency is to revel in the nobility of lost causes. This in itself is not a bad thing at all—quite the opposite in fact. As T.S. Eliot said: “We fight for lost causes because we know that our defeat and dismay may be the preface to our successors’ victory, though that victory itself will be temporary; we fight rather to keep something alive than in the expectation that anything will triumph.”
