Mark Steyn on the Anglosphere in decline

 A very depressing, yet factual analysis by Mark Steyn on the decline in the Anglosphere as a harbinger for a celine in liberty.

Dependence Day
by Mark Steyn

On the erosion of personal liberty.

If I am pessimistic about the future of liberty, it is because I am pessimistic about the strength of the English-speaking nations, which have, in profound ways, surrendered to forces at odds with their inheritance. “Declinism” is in the air, but some of us apocalyptic types are way beyond that. The United States is facing nothing so amiable and genteel as Continental-style “decline,” but something more like sliding off a cliff.

Excellent piece Roy.

Exceptionally brilliant, if not brutally honest! One of the best articles I've read in a long time!

Unfortunately, all the usual (liberal left) suspects who need to read it, won't.

What a load of drivel. And what the hell is a "celine"? Idiots.

Courageous commenter "Anonymous," you'll have to defend your thesis: "load of drivel."

Just saying an article is "drivel," doesn't mean that it is. You're obviously a magical thinker -- and have an overblown sense of your own entitled opinion.

Proof, please, of your low opinion of Mark Steyn's views. In other words, put up or shut up. ;-)
