WND's Robert Ringer: America 'Reached Its Apex of Virtuosity In The 1950s'
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Robert Ringer writes in his April 17 WorldNetDaily column:

The collective was the life of prehistoric man – the life of the savage. As civilization advanced, however, families began to strive for self-sufficiency, which increasingly came to be considered virtuous. This was especially true of the United States, which probably reached its apex of virtuosity in the 1950s.

So why did things begin to slide backwards after that? I believe it was a result of a fascinating paradox. As the average person’s life has become ever more comfortable, there has been a natural evolution toward compassion. No civilized person – especially someone who is living well – wants to see other people suffer.

Unfortunately, this natural evolution toward compassion also dragged along with it the tenets of socialism.

Really? The time of segregation, sexism and a 90 percent top tax rate was the "apex of virtuosity"?
