Final Word from Thursday, February 7, 2019

In the history of the world, freedom exists in a time-space continuum. What is free today can be unfree tomorrow, and vice versa. Donald Trump declared in his State of the Union address on Tues. that, "No force in history has done more to advance the human condition than American freedom." He might actually be right when he says this and adds that, "In the 20th century, America saved freedom, transformed science, and redefined the middle-class standard of living for the entire world to see." But in the time-space continuum, America's moment is ephemeral. What will its version of freedom mean to the human condition when its endless wars (as Trump referred to them on Tues.) and its debt catch up with it? Great nations historically do not remain great for very long. A new Freedom House survey, mostly funded by the U.S. government, found that the Czech Republic is freer than the United States. Will the professor of freedom ever accept the role of the student? [ Czech Republic United States of America president ]
