The Cube and the Cathedral: Politics Without God George Weigel talked about his book The Cube and the Cathedral: Europe, America, and Politics Without God, published by Basic Books. He argued that there can be no defense of freedom or democracy without God. In his book the author linked Europe’s involvement in world wars, totalitarian systems, and its de-population to its lack of spiritual aspirations. Mr. Weigel was joined by Washington Post columnist Anne Applebaum to discuss what he viewed as “Europe’s problem” and the debate over a new European Union constitution. They also answered questions from the audience. close
