Can America Recover?
Feb 22, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm PST
Rediscovering America makes a convincing case that most of our present problems can be solved by better understanding the past. In so doing the reader is elevated to see through the propaganda of such initiatives as the 1619 Project and Critical Race Theory to gain a refreshing and penetrating understanding about what it really means to be an enlightened American who delights in the vision of Martin Luther King, whose timeless truth – that people “should not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character” – is the absolute standard that cannot be eclipsed.
No one would refer to the United States as “just another nation,” as the concept of “America” has always carried big and positive attributes. From the first settlers to today’s arrivals in America 400 years later, immigrants remind us that the mythic sense of America as being a place of refuge and sanctuary, a land of second chances, renewal and new beginnings, a place of unexplored frontiers with unlimited possibilities is so enduring and compelling.
According to Powell, America’s role in history and in the world isn’t just unique and important, but it’s indispensable. There have been nation states of prior cultural achievement, but the United States is the only country in the entire history of mankind that was specifically founded on ideas and principles, rather than royalty, blood lineage, language, common culture, geography or the spoils of war and conquest. And the founding ideas of America – that all people are created equal in value, and that they have unalienable rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” – remain as powerful and true today as ever.
