Perplexed by A Dying American? Read This Book!

You will have to wade through some opaque cleverness, but the truth about America’s bizarre changes and precipitous decline resides within the pages of Mark Steyn’s book.

I urge you to get it, read it, and then inform your friends.

From Mark Steyn’s book After America: Get Ready for Armageddon

Quote:

Big Government’s bias against marriage and family isn’t an unforeseen quirk of the tax code. It’s in logical, strategic support of its mission—to expand government and diminish everything else. How’s it going? Well, 40 percent of American children are now born out of wed-lock. A majority of Hispanic babies are born to unmarried mothers. So are 70 percent of black children. And so are 70 percent of the offspring of non-Hispanic white women with high school education and an income under $20,000. Entire new categories of crime have arisen in the wake of familial collapse, like the legions of daughters abused by their mom’s latest live-in boyfriend. Congressman Pence’s doomsday scenario is already here: millions and millions of American children are raised in transient house-holds and moral vacuums that make not just social mobility but even elemental character formation all but impossible. In an America of fewer jobs, more poverty, more crime, more drugs, more disease, and growing ethno-cultural resentments, the shattering of the indispensable social building block will have catastrophic consequences.  (P. 234)

Unquote.

I will edit Mark’s last sentence. “The Shattering of the indispensable social building block” [is having] “catastrophic consequences” [in America].

Most Americans have no idea about the depth of this cultural tragedy. The actual source of the lethal damage to us all is disguised amongst a thousand things going wrong.
