This post is in reference to “The Best of Mark Steyn”, from the Thunder on the Right Blog.
They reprinted, from Front Page Mag, a review of After America: Get Ready for Armageddon by Mark Steyn
I want to read this book. (So many books, so little time.) Steyn is a wonderful writer and speaker, and makes his points sometimes with scathing humor.
The quotes from the book in this review tell me that Mark has articulated what has bubbled about in my mind for sometime about our sad nation. His capacity for analysis and articulation surpasses mine. He has put into understandable words the truly sorry decline of the United States of America.
We are (have been) exceptional, as the only nation founded on an ideal. When the ideal is cast off, the nation recedes. I hope and pray the course can be reversed, but do we have the will to see to it?
Do you believe it’s the right course for America to cast off everything that has made it unique in all history? If so, why? Where is the power in becoming a generic nation?
