WHY PATRIOTISM AND HOPE IN AMERICA ARE COLLAPSING

“Some of the founding values of this country are being discarded,” Gurdon said. “And it’s not surprising because the founding values are constantly under attack.”

“The Left is constantly persuading people insisting that our founding values are hypocritical,” he continued. “They want to teach that if you are white, you are irredeemably racist, or if you are black, you cannot escape your inferior position because you have no agency. People are watching the values of this country under constant assault, so it really is no surprise that they are beginning to doubt it. There is self-doubt creeping into America and it’s really undermining confidence in the country.”

Gurdon’s comments follow a recent poll that showed patriotism, faith, and the desire to raise a family are declining in importance throughout the U.S.

“It suggests that people are not as invested and not as interested,” Gurdon said. “[They] do not think it is as important to bring the next generation of Americans into the world.”

“Across the board, there are concerning numbers here that suggest a divided country, a country which is perhaps losing confidence in its future,” Gurdon added.
