The Decline in Patriotism
The trouble with the survey is not the numbers but the interpretation. This is being seen as some weird fog of nihilism and greed that has mysteriously slipped over the population, as if it were an entirely organic trend over which no one has any control. That’s wrong.

And until we get it, we cannot repair the grave damage to the culture or the national soul.
