This is a really brave, insightful column. Brave of someone from a lefty Catholic school like Notre Dame to write it!
It's called "Post-Mortem" and it has a lot of interesting food for thought.
"We have been trying to fight this battle every four years at the voting
booth. It is long past time we admit that that is not where the battle
really is. We abdicated control of the culture – starting back in
the 1960s. And now our largest primary social institutions – education,
the media, Hollywood (entertainment) have become really nothing more
than an assembly line for cranking out reliable little Leftists."
"Furthermore, we have allowed the government to undermine the
institutions that instill good character – marriage, the family,
communities, schools, our churches. So, here we are, at least two full
generations later – we are reaping what we have sown. It took nearly
fifty years to get here; it will take another fifty years to get back.
But it starts with the determination to reclaim education, the media,
and the entertainment business. If we fail to do that, we can kiss every
election goodbye from here on out. And much more."
THANK YOU FOR SAYING IT.
