Mark Pincus: Biden Is Even Riskier Than Trump


The War on the West

A conversation with Douglas Murray

We typically reserve Sundays for our favorite reading material. But today we encourage you to pop in your headphones, put on your sneakers, and go soak up the sun while listening to this conversation with the brilliant Douglas Murray. 

Douglas is a writer. You can find his byline in The New York Post, where he has a regular column; The Spectator, where he is an associate editor; and also in The Wall Street Journal, The Sunday Times, The Sun and more. He is also the author of seven books, including his latest, the New York Times bestseller The War on the West. (His friends wonder when he sleeps.)

Douglas is also, as you’ll hear today, one of the most articulate and passionate defenders of the West and all it has given us: rights and freedoms unimaginable in so many other times and places, but also music and art and cities that elevate the soul.

We recorded the conversation a few weeks back in L.A., but as you’ll see, the themes we discuss are ones that define our epoch. I always learn from Douglas and hope you enjoy listening to this conversation as much as loved having it.

Welcome to The FP Community!

Our comments are an editorial product for our readers to have smart, thoughtful conversations and debates — the sort we need more of in America today. The sort of debate we love.   

We have standards in our comments section just as we do in our journalism. If you’re being a jerk, we might delete that one. And if you’re being a jerk for a long time, we might remove you from the comments section. 

Common Sense was our original name, so please use some when posting. Here are some guidelines:

  • We have a simple rule for all Free Press staff: act online the way you act in real life. We think that’s a good rule for everyone.
  • We drop an occasional F-bomb ourselves, but try to keep your profanities in check. We’re proud to have Free Press readers of every age, and we want to model good behavior for them. (Hello to Intern Julia!)
  • Speaking of obscenities, don’t hurl them at each other. Harassment, threats, and derogatory comments that derail productive conversation are a hard no.
  • Criticizing and wrestling with what you read here is great. Our rule of thumb is that smart people debate ideas, dumb people debate identity. So keep it classy. 
  • Don’t spam, solicit, or advertise here. Submit your recommendations to if you really think our audience needs to hear about it.
