At Majority Rights, I am arguing with Dan Dare over whether or not Winston Churchill was an asset or liability to the West. My position is that the liberalism of the British public and elite determined their negative reaction to the Third Reich. In the absence of this liberal consensus, Hitler’s regime would have been evaluated in a different light, and there wouldn’t have been such a rush to war (or the disastrous racial consequences that followed in its wake).
Winston Churchill played no small role in inciting the war, drawing other powers into the war, continuing the war long past the point when it was even remotely in the British self interest, and polarizing the war into a contest between racism vs. anti-racism. Hence, Churchill was a “liability” for the West. I can’t find anything positive to say about him.
