Publisher's Summary

It's not your imagination: civilized human society is collapsing. Communities no longer work toward a common good; children are no longer our first priority; businesses no longer value hard work; arts and skills have been lost; and gender is decided by the individual, not biology.

Excellence is Esolen's standard and he met his standard again. Would that his vision could be accomplished. Everything conspires against it, the media, the Hollywood elite, the tech industry (cf. Snapchat), the banks: "a home equity line is perfect to consolidate credit card debt-finance last Saturday's steak dinner over 15 years." Each of us who share his vision must implement it within our own circle of influence and maybe, some day...
