After decades of Politically Correct attitudes, big-government fixes, culture wars and muddled foreign policy, the U.S. finds itself on the brink of what may become an historic decline from preeminence. In addition, recent trends and events such as globalism and the war on terror have created an environment for the U.S. which is increasingly more dangerous. America was founded on the principles of democracy and freedom. In the last half of the 20th century America forgot these important principles and allowed elements potentially dangerous to freedom and democracy to prevail. What can citizens do to change this trend? As the nation''s social and political institutions are in peril of failure citizens must rise up and demand change. Several areas are identified for reform including education, the media and the political process.
Ready or not, America''s challenges of the 21st century must be addressed with an eye to both the future''s perils as well as the Founders principles.
