There is no doubt whatsoever that we are living in strange times here in the United States, (and the world, for that matter), with the cultural and political unrest now easily rivaling the sort of upheaval that we witnessed back in the 1960’s.
And while some of this change is ostensibly good and rather patriotic, particularly as it pertains to the rights of individuals from all walks of American life, there are some sinister overtones continuing to fester…some of which have experts warning that American the almighty may be on the “brink of collapse”.
With skyrocketing inflation, political division, social unrest and a relentless effort to wipe away the fundamental principles of the nation, historians and scholars in Fox Nation’s “American Requiem” series offer an elegy for what the country used to be and warn of what it has become.
“The America of the 1980s has pretty much vanished,” Manhattan Institute senior fellow Chris Rufo said. “We’re now entering a new period of unprecedented economic, social and cultural change.”
Others chimed in as well.
“We’re in a very bizarre and unprecedented situation in our civilization today, which is – we are turning on our own legacy and declaring it evil, oppressive, without any redeeming characteristics…” Manhattan Institute senior fellow Heather MacDonald said in the special.
The three-part series dissects America’s cultural fabric and the tears that it has suffered, picking out the pivotal changes that signal the nation’s exponential decline in the last 30 years that created the country we see today.
“[People] have lost the hope that the future for America will be brighter than its past,” Heritage Foundation President Dr. Kevin Roberts lamented.
And then, perhaps the starkest warning of them all:
“The chain of civilization is only as strong as its weakest link, and all the values have to be passed on in their entirety from one generation to the other,” said historian and Hoover Institution senior fellow Victor Davis Hanson.
God bless America…she’s going to need it.
