At the very end of REDISCOVERING AMERICANISM (June 27, 2017), I closed my book with the following statement:

“[T]hose of us whose eyes are open, whatever our numbers, have a moral obligation to try to rouse our fellow citizens to take a sober and critical look at the decaying societal conditions, from which truthful conclusions can be drawn and perhaps improvements made. I understand the daunting task, given the powerful tide against which we must swim and the condemnations and mockeries from those who fear such inquires and wish to escape them. Yet there is neither virtue nor benefit in denial and self-censorship. There is no possible escape from reality. And we can gain strength from our own history and the courage and wisdom of the Founding Fathers and so many others who came before us. Besides, we have no choice.”
