A Nation With No Soul Pays Dearly
Sigmund, Carl and Alfred reminds of something many Americans have realized but almost as many don't even care about - the events of 9/11 exposed a terrible truth: As a nation, we have no soul.
The nation's struggle with the war on terror and the partisan political bickering that has reached hysterical proportions, is the result of a few fundamental truths, not the least of which is that as a nation, we cannot and will not define what it is to be an American and what it is we stand for.Continue reading, "A Nation With No Soul Pays Dearly."
As long as there is no national purpose or identity, there are no foundations upon which we can stand- and thus there is no nation to defend.
National purpose and identity are not found in fostering 'diversity awareness' or 'cultural sensitivity' programs. Those things are nice to have, important even, but they do not and cannot replace the need for a national identity and purpose- those are representative of moral values, deliberately and willingly shouldered.
And we indeed will pay dearly unless we again, as we have done in the past, stand up together and define what it is to be an American and what it is we stand for.
