Columbus Day commemorates Western civilization

Happy Columbus Day everyone! It is small wonder that many on the Left seek to condemn Christopher Columbus since by exploring and discovering the New World enabled the discovery of America and the ideals of freedom our country stands for.

Environmentalists continue this condemnation by working to destroy energy production since it is the basis of the very civilization we have. Thomas Bowden of the Ayn Rand Institute beautifully describes the importance of commemorating Christopher Columbus’ discovery of the New World that took place on this day in 1492.
