Compelling wisdom from the inimitable Bill Bennett:
A grievance culture has taken hold in the West, both in England and America-and at exactly the wrong time. Where not long after 9/11 we were angry, we now have become sad, or depressed and confused; and too many have replaced our concept of evil with all manner of diagnoses of syndromes and root causes. We are at war, and yet we are indulging a culture of grievance. My friend Debra Burlingame – whose brother, Chick, was the pilot of flight 77 that was hijacked and smashed into the Pentagon – was recently asked if she missed the post-9/11 commonsense. She answered: “Truthfully, what I miss the most is the anger.” I do too.
The rest is here. A barn-burner – and worth reading every word.
