Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025? [Autographed][Hardcover]
By Patrick J. Buchanan
America is disintegrating.
The “one nation under God, indivisible” of the Pledge of Allegiance is passing away. In a few decades, that America will be gone forever. In its place will arise a country that our parents would not recognize.
This is the thrust of Pat Buchanan’s "Suicide of a Superpower."
The author of six New York Times bestsellers traces the disintegration to three historic changes: America’s loss of her cradle faith, Christianity; the moral, social and cultural collapse that have followed from that loss; and the slow death of the people who created and ruled the nation.
America was born a Western Christian republic, writes Buchanan, but is being transformed into a multiracial, multicultural, multilingual, multiethnic stew of a nation that has no successful precedent in the history of the world.
Where once we celebrated the unity, the melting pot and the shared experience that the Depression and World Wars gave us, our elites today proclaim, “Our diversity is our greatest strength!” – even as racial, religious and ethnic diversity are tearing nations to pieces.
Rejecting the commitment to a God-given equality of rights for all as inadequate, our government is engaged in the manic pursuit of equality of rewards, as it seeks to erect an egalitarian utopia that has never before existed. Less and less do we Americans have in common. More and more do we fight over religion, morality, politics, history and heroes. And as our nation disintegrates, our government is failing in its fundamental duties and becoming unable to defend our borders, balance our budgets or win our wars.
How Americans are killing the country they profess to love, and the fate that awaits us if we do not turn around, are what "Suicide of a Superpower" is all about.
“Buchanan is an honest writer who … minces nothing except an occasional opponent.” – The Philadelphia Inquirer
“Nobody turns a sharp phrase, drops an historical reference, or makes a literary allusion as naturally as Pat Buchanan.” – Human Events
“Buchanan is a muscular writer, fully in command of the English language he feels is under siege. He is adept at linking history, statistics, and the writings of philosophers and economists to proffer forceful arguments.” – The Washington Post
“Mr. Buchanan … is positively fearless. He is also right.” – Tony Blankley, The Washington Times
“His approach is that of a true conservative, offering a perspective rooted in American tradition initiated by Washington.” – Kirkus Reviews
