American society is in decline because America is being run more and more by non-Americans or people born here but acting like anything but Americans.

Two conflicting conceptions of feminine dignity;
feminism as male-role-envy

Modern neglect of the economic side of marriage;
female attraction to "providers" natural and unchangeable

No property rights within the traditional family;
family as primal form of community

Consequences of "unlimited choice";
reasons for considering marriage an irreversible covenant

Natural erosion of male role under modern conditions;
deliberate erosion of male role by feminism

Practical consequences of domestic androgyny and role reversal; What is to be done?

Because, for a long time, it seemed the rest of the world wanted to be like us. Now, we are starting to become like the rest of the world. And, if you have never traveled extensively, take it from someone who has, most of the world is a fairly crappy place compared to the United States.

Immigrants used to come here wanting our way of life. They now come here wanting our jobs, and our country, but could care less about adapting our way of life. And, we have leaders (ha!) like Obama preaching that we need to be more like the rest of the world, and tolerant of people coming here who don't want to be like us.

In fact, we are made to feel guilty, called racists, and worse, if we want immigrants (and their offspring now) to adapt the American way of life.

When people started calling us racist and intolerant and bigoted for wanting to make immigrants adapt our way of life, and our culture, and to think of themselves as American-Americans first, and we started believing there was something wrong with us for demanding that, it was the starting point of the beginning of the end.
