I read Diana West's Death of the Grown Up a few months ago, and it was mesmerizing.
She really did put into words, and into a full-length book, the degree to which Western civilization has infantilized itself.
I highly recommend it.
I've just started American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation's Character and it it also outstanding. It is well-researched, and West is an intelligent, insightful and brave writer. She is also excellent on radio and she is certainly a truth-teller.
I really admire her, and I'd urge you to check out her books, and also to follow her on Twitter.
My friend Kathy has documented some of the shenanigans that are going on right now with her book and it's quite a disgraceful scene.
You know why the left thrives? Because they have no moral bottom. But we don't even need the left to destroy us when we eat our own.
Read the books and then make a decision. West's meticulous research and thoughtful analysis speaks for itself.
She is an important intellectual and cultural warrior and I hope she never backs down.
