(‘76 Contributor) We have been privileged. We have lived in the most abundant and powerful country in the history of mankind. But we are also experiencing developing conditions that imperil our nation. In the span of 50 years, many still living have seen our country at the peak of its ascent among nations. But now we are witnessing the accelerating descent of the United States. Although America still enjoys the greatest material prosperity and has the most powerful military on earth, our society has been on unsustainable cultural and economic paths for decades that threaten our future.
