‘Coming Apart at the Seams’

by Rich Lowry

I wrote about Charles Murray’s AEI lecture today, which Derb blogged about last week. Murray’s findings track with those of Brad Wilcox, which I wrote about here. How bad is our social situation? Both Wilcox and Murrary are serious, sober-minded people. When looking at the trends, Wilcox says we could be headed for Latin American-style division of the classes and Murray invokes Rome at the end of the republic.
