Destructive Liberalism.....

This writer feels that the current financial crisis is really a moral crisis. Personally, I think that we need to accept that we are human beings and that we will act like human beings in our environment. Its no one's fault and silly to point fingers at people that act in their own self interest like one would expect people to behave. Unfortunately, the environment is polluted with a bizarre new moral code.....
If we seriously wish to repair the damage, we need to accept that this is fundamentally a moral crisis, not a financial one. It is the product of the self-indulgence and complacency born of our ultraliberal societies, which have substituted such pseudo-religions as political correctness and saving the planet for genuine distinctions between right and wrong and the cultivation of real virtues.
We have allowed the true root of American life marked by ingenuity, individual responsibility and hardwork wither by watering it with the acid water of Liberalism.

The writer thinks that the Chinese and Indian societies that still focus on traditional family issues; focus on education for their children, saving for the future and a reliance on family, friends, neighbors and communities for survival and success as relative beneficiaries....
We are traveling along the high road to incompetence and poverty, led by a farcical coalition of fashionably liberal academics on the make, assorted eco-crackpots and media wiseacres. This strain of liberalism is highly infectious. The Indians and Chinese have yet to be infected. They're still healthy, hard at work and going places, full speed ahead.
I do not agree with the writer on his assessment of the Chinese, but I do agree that Liberalism is Western disease that will only result in tragedy.
