Rabbi Lapin: Would an American from 1957 recognize his country 60 years later?

America’s astonishingly swift descent into socialism the topic of discussion for Rabbi Daniel Lapin today. Rabbi Lapin states that the difference from 1957 to 2017 is nearly impossible to believe and equates it to the “breaking of an enormous dam. The water gushes out in the way that America has descended into Socialism, overwhelming everything in it’s way.”

Everything we believed would be the institutions of today, from the Church, to education, to the world of entertainment has changed with astonishing speed, he claims.

“Can you believe that Hollywood, once upon a time, was profoundly patriotic? And you think back in, I’m saying 1957, Hollywood was still patriotic in the aftermath of World War 2, but what happened? What happened in the last 60 years to transition things?” Lapin asks.

According to Lapin, our population was dumbed down through our politicized and substandard education system that based information on pop culture rather than the classics. “What happened that American school children would no longer be taught about the glories of the Revolution and of the Civil War? Instead they would only be told about the horrors of slavery and the evil of Christopher Columbus.”

Rabbi Lapin wonders why Americans have come to know far more about the drama of their favorite television shows and movies than the daily drama in Washington, D.C. “What has happened and how did it happen?” He tackles that and where we go from here in today’s podcast.
