National Review;3/5/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 7, p231
The article examines a speech given by U.S. politician Ronald Reagan during an event attended by conservatives at the Plaza Hotel in New York, two days before the announcement of his candidacy as president of the U.S. in 1976. Reagan recited a long quotation from author Whittaker Chambers about Western civilization being a "wreck from within." Reagan had rejected the claim of Chambers, but if the economic condition and policies of the country are evaluated, Chambers could be proven right in another decade.
