Patrick Deneen writes a blog called, "What I Saw in America". In it, he is constantly spanking our culture for having its morals out of whack, and constantly demanding its own way through perceived "rights".
Deneen just finished posting an article on the poor man, trampled to death, during the opening seconds of a Wal-Mart store's Black Friday sale.
Deneen wags his finger at the culture that has bred such an event:
"Yet, in both instances, the root cause of each challenge, and our flailing and feeble reaction, are the same. Both have been caused by the refusal to live within our means, to borrow against the future in the name of present satisfaction. Both are born of a misguided and unearned belief in entitlement. Both are sustained by a profound self-induced blindness to costs and consequences. Both are rooted in our learned ability to divorce ourselves from past and future alike, to disconnect ourselves from an understanding of our place in generations, the obligations we bear from the past and the duties we owe to the future. Both crises were fomented by the destruction of cultures - undermined by their replacement by instant gratification and the profligate employment of energy utilized to decouple our lived lives from everything necessary for the sustenance of life and the maintenance of culture, above all by disconnecting folkways of human life to particular places and particular people."
Hop over and give Patrick's blog a read. I think you will find a voice crying for sanity, reason, and a return to those things that truly promote a great culture.
