Re.: America's Accelerating Decline

There’s almost nothing I can disagree with in Dennis Prager’s latest jeremiad from Tuesday. I don’t know if we share a generally pessimistic disposition — certainly an occupational danger for an historian like me — but sensing decay and seeing how we fail to counter it is impossible to ignore for someone immersed in the lessons of history.
