The Case of an American Revolution in Morality


Somerville, Mass.

It’s hard to contemplate American public life in the 21st century and not come to the unfortunate conclusion that we are ruled by idiots. The political class has recently produced an impressive series of debacles: the withdrawal from Afghanistan, waves of urban crime, easily predictable inflation, chaos on the southern border, a self-generated energy crisis, a pandemic response that brought little good and great ruin. Then there are the eternal national embarrassments: an insanely expensive welfare state that doesn’t work, public schools that make kids dumber, universities that harbor destructive grievances and harmful ideologies, and the news media to which no one trusts.
