“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

American entertainment, the bellwether of cultural rot

The grace, sophistication, and genuine talent of Shirley Temple Black have given way to the obese, trailer-park coarseness of Honey Boo Boo....

The cultural decline of western civilization is as predictable as it is pathetic. 

If democracies follow this progression: Bondage > Spiritual Faith > Great Courage >Liberty> Abundance > Complacency > Apathy > Dependence > Bondage.....
then I'd say we are around Apathy and Dependence, just like before the fall of Rome, 
where the bizarre and repulsive count as entertainment.
