William E. Simon Lecture

World War I was a civilizational cataclysm and its effects are much among us. In his thirteenth annual William E. Simon Lecture, EPPC Distinguished Senior Fellow George Weigel explores both the perennial question of why the Great War happened and the typically unexplored, but perhaps more urgent, question of why World War I continued—and what the answers to that second question disclose about the state of western civilization today.
