Liberty, the god that failed
"Pierre Manent has put it best: In America, as in every Western polity, we are expected to be 'atheists under the one God, the God in whom we believe.'

They have hypnotized an entire civilization, which need only awaken from its trance in order to realize the ridiculousness of its situation."
