Governing Elites Are Destroying The Nation They’re Supposed To Run

A friend of American Thinker, understandably upset about the unraveling of America around us, reached out with a heartfelt question: how did we as a society come to behave so acrimoniously toward one another?  

The two words that stood out to me while turning this question over in my mind were “we” and “society.”  Who “we” are as Americans has changed radically over the last half-century, and during that time, the political sphere in America has eaten away and destroyed the independence of the civic sphere we traditionally call “society.”  

Consider these facts:

1. Before Ted Kennedy’s 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, nine tenths of all new immigrants to America came from Europe; after the act’s passage, nine tenths of new immigrants have come from Latin America, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.

2. Since the 1965 Act’s passage, over sixty million new immigrants have arrived in the United States, and over a hundred million more are expected over the next half century.
