America Alone - Mark Steyn

I finished off another book recently. It was America Alone by Mark Steyn.

It was a good book. Interesting and thought provoking. Steyn makes his case persuasively for the challenges facing America and what the USA should do. He's a good writer in the style of the National Review. Mixing humour with strong analysis.

He puts 9/11 in context as a skirmish in a long cultural war. A war we're slowly losing. He paints multiculturalism as corrosive to our western society.

I gained a new respect for the USA after reading this book. Steyn, a Canadian immigrant, is a great fan of the United States and its way of life. The ideals such as freedom and personal responsibility, and national responsibility.
