How Our Country Has Changed

Via Instapundit:
A SOCIETY DOES NOT SURVIVE, UNLESS IT HAS A REASON TO SURVIVE: Video of Dennis Prager telling University of Denver students, “I believe the greatest threat facing America – I’ve believed this my entire adult life — is that we have not passed on what it means to be an American to this generation.”

St.-Exupery said that a society is built on what is expected of men, not what is provided for them. Contrast “ask not what your country can do for you” with the Occupy Wall Street, anti-capitalist/socialist rants we hear today.

When the media and even the White House continue to label Americans as the enemy, how can we expect children to want to be part of the mix?
