From grade school on we are taught to appreciate the American government and its civic processes as the cornerstone of freedom in the world, the ‘shining beacon on the hill.’ We are taught how to pledge allegiance to and revere a flag. We are told that goodness will prevail if we all just participate heartily and enthusiastically, playing by the rules.
We grow up believing that a basic responsibility of being born a human on planet earth is to participate in all of this political activity, and likewise, we are taught that non-participation is irresponsible, lazy, deplorable even. And so, as good citizens do, many of us participate…
Mr Santorum’s starkly Manichean vision of the US emerged in a four-year-old speech that was unearthed yesterday and went even further than the fiercely moralistic tone of his current campaign, leaving Republican strategists fearful that he would alienate vital moderate voters.
