Portrait of Hollowed Out America

A clear description of the dismally degraded state of the nation is provided by an insightful rabbi in this essay.

An excellent analysis of the factors behind the onset and continuation of the deconstruction of the U.S. is set forth in a recent book --  The Fortunes of Permanence - Culture and Anarchy in an Age of Amnesia.  The book is well worth reading as it does an excellent job of diagnosing our self-inflicted wounds and putting them in historical perspective.  However, its author, Roger Kimball, is far more optimistic than I am about  the possibility of a national and societal revival.
