America is disintegrating. In a few decades, our America will be gone forever. In its place will arise a country unrecognizable to our parents.
This is the thrust of Pat Buchanan’s Suicide of a Superpower.
The author of six bestsellers traces the disintegration to three historic changes:
- America’s loss of her cradle faith, Christianity;
- the moral, social and cultural collapses that have followed from that loss;
- and the slow death of the people who created and ruled the nation.
America was born a Western Christian republic, writes Buchanan, but is being transformed into a multiracial, multicultural, multilingual, multiethnic stew of a nation that has no successful precedent in the history of the world. Where once we celebrated the unity, the melting pot and shared experience that the Depression and World War II gave us, our elites today proclaim, “Our diversity is our greatest strength!”—even as racial, religious and ethnic diversity are tearing nations to pieces.
