American Spirit Just Restin’ ?

Victor Davis Hanson Surveying The Big Red American Soviet.

Smitty has been on a roll lately. I think this is the defining statement in this essay;

As I’ve been wont to argue the American Soviet has been a century-long process. While it’s fine to characterize it at various degrees of magnification, what matters now is energizing the American people to defend “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” and not the cheap substitutes of “constrained existence, managed liberty, and Orwellian spin”.
The people have been conditioned to depend on the government, hate capitalism, and avoid the challenge of independence. Has the American spirit been vanquished? Nah, just restin’. It may be the case that the Baby Boomers, like the slaves coming out of Egypt, are a lost generation.
