From my Coast to Coast AM Newsletter for June 12 –
In the first half of Wednesday’s show, author of several influential books on public policy, Dinesh D’Souza discussed why he believes the American dream has become precarious. America’s current leadership looks upon the forces that built America as oppressive, and “says things like capitalism is a form of theft in which entrepreneurs grab from people, what Obama calls, ‘their fair share,'” he commented. But this kind of thinking makes no sense, he continued, citing the brilliance of individuals like Steve Jobs, who developed products people didn’t even know they wanted. Further, the current US leadership has lost faith in America, and seeks to retract from its dominance on the world stage, he stated.
We’ve seen remarkable economic decline in America in the last decade, and young people are not inspired by the same kind of entrepreneurial spirit and inventiveness that previously drove the country’s success, he added.
