MR. BORK STARTS THIS SLIDE OF AMERICA TOWARD GOMORRAH back to the sixties. I have always thought it started when this great nation of God’s kingdom joined the United Nations. (And thus we joined the world order in building a new one world government in which America loses her sovereignty.)
Mr. Bork believes that a nations moral life is the foundation of its culture. Thus Welcome to America 1998 and the rough beast which the Visionary poet Keats foresaw in 1919, which is now a monster of decadence, a plague several generations in gestation. We as a nation are now slouching not toward Bethlehem but toward Gomorrah, the Biblical city, burned to the ground for the sinfulness of its people. (Here in 1998, two years after this book was written we have gone further on down that road. Mr. Bork reminds us that our nation is in such serious moral trouble that its very foundation is crumbling.
Of our President back there in 1996 Mr. Bork wrote: (Quote) “Thirty years ago, Clinton’s behaviour would have been absolutely disqualifying. Since the 1992 election, the public has learned far more about what is known euphemistically as the ‘Character issue. Yet none of this seems to affect Clinton’s popularity. It is difficult to conclude that something about our moral perceptions and reactions has changed profoundly. If that change is permanent, the implication for our future is bleak.”(Unquote), (Well then how would you characterise things today?)
