Without being so crude, that is the same question asked by Peggy Noonan in her Wall Street Journal article America’s Crisis of Character.
… I’ve long thought that public dissatisfaction is about more than the economy, that it’s also about our culture, or rather the flat, brute, highly sexualized thing we call our culture.
Now I’d go a step beyond that. I think more and more people are worried about the American character—who we are and what kind of adults we are raising.
I found her article very disturbing. I have no intention of parsing this article. There is nothing I could add to it. I am asking you, dear readers, to read it and tell me here your reactions. I think the issue of our character as a people is something worthy of our discussion. For years, in the name of “social justice”, we have been lowering our standards. The Romans invited the barbarians through their gates. We ar breeding our own barbarians.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
