Good News . . .

. . . for those who are opposed to the concept of an affirmative perspective regarding American Exceptionalism: "The passage of the health care law shows that the US empire is declining because it illustrates the fact that people expect the state to take care of them, David Murrin, the co-founder of Emergent Asset Management hedge fund manager, told CNBC . . . In their expansionary phase, [see our recent poll results] empires force people to go out, seek risks and fend for themselves, Murrin said, reminding of the dismantling of the British empire after the war, when the National Health Service, which ensures universal health coverage in Britain, was created."

Murrin is the author of Breaking the Code of History

His comments about Christianity are quite interesting, as are his observations regarding risk-taking; something those who have never produced anything or run a business (most of the current political and ruling class) don't understand. I believe we now have a very clear picture - and getting clearer by the day - of why so many academics publicly supported Barack Obama.
