A Reader Wonders If America Is “A Marriage That Doesn`t Make Sense Anymore”?
From: pd`appui [Email him]
Reflecting on the National Question, and the condition of our nation at present, I`ve been inclined on many occasions to suggest that “America is beginning to feel like a marriage that doesn`t make sense anymore.”
I`ve found that this, more than anything else, strikes a visceral tone in otherwise unsympathetic ears.
With the divorce rate what it is, why not take advantage of such associations? As Rousseau once remarked, there is a crucial difference between convincing and persuading. The National Question is too important for anything but the latter.
Just a thought.
