I subscribe to a few daily news updates, this one grabbed my attention.
- Conservative sees U.S. cultural war
WASHINGTON (AP) - A prominent conservative, giving voice to frustration
within the Republican Party over President Clinton's acquittal, is telling
conservative leaders that American society is "approaching barbarism" and is
out of step with their political movement. "I no longer believe that there
is a moral majority," Paul Weyrich wrote in a letter Tuesday to several
hundred conservatives. "I do not believe that a majority of Americans
actually share our values." Weyrich, head of the Free Congress Foundation in
Washington, argues that it may be time to "drop out of this culture" -
perhaps even abandoning efforts to influence the American political system.
Here are some questions - I am interested in the opinions of the people
Are American moral values getting better or worse?
Do members of the right political wing actually feel that they have superior
morals than the rest of us?
If so, what is the cause of this sense of moral superiority?
Is the right wing unduly paranoid? Or is the threat to their way of life
