5.0 out of 5 stars We must all Steyn on, August 8, 2011
This review is from: After America: Get Ready for Armageddon (Hardcover)
If you like superb writing, and care about your future, treat yourself to Mark Steyn's latest masterpiece, After America. In it he explains how the world's mightiest national organism, weakened by a heavy parasite load, could quickly succumb to self-inflicted injuries and infection. These governmental and societal maladies include a suffocating regulatory environment, wasteful spending, unsustainable entitlements, and the seeming inability to make significant course changes in the face of impending disaster. The US has long been a powerful force for good in the world. However, if we don't change our ways soon there will be an "aftermath," and it will have a far darker character.
Starting to feel a little uneasy? Well, take solace in knowing that Mr. Steyn is on our side. He happens to like his Western cultural heritage and would like to keep it. And unlike the passive masses inclined to avoid unpleasantness and ignore danger, he's a fighter who goes directly at the enemy. With his incisive, straightforward style, he smacks us "up side the head" with our own vulnerability. With his wry observations of our increasingly invasive government and nonsensical political class, he mixes in jabs of humor. The combined stimuli will force you to pull your head out of the sand. Your improved pose, and his informative prose, will make you better able to fight for the sweet but precarious life you presently enjoy.
