America vs. Americans

Leonard Peikoff

Presented at: ARI Event 2003 America vs. Americans

Date: Apr 21, 2003

Leonard Peikoff analyzes and rejects — as appeasement-ridden and ineffectual — the entire Bush administration response to the terrorist attacks on the United States, from 9/11 until today. America, he says, should have reacted to 9/11 as it did to Pearl Harbor, by declaring war not on Afghanistan or Iraq, but on Iran. The public’s approval of Bush’s policies, he argues, indicates the tragic deterioration of the American mind in the last sixty years, owing to the influence in our schools and colleges of Progressive educators and irrationalist intellectuals.
