Regular readers at this site are beginning to realize that younger generations of Americans increasingly see us all as anachronistic pariahs with wholly illegitimate values that must be “fundamentally transformed” — out of existence. The idea expressed by John Adams that our Constitution “was made only for a moral and religious people” and is “wholly inadequate to the government of any other” no longer resonates.
