Open Your Eyes, for God's Sake!

Lukacs, John
March 1982
National Review;3/5/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 4, p223
The author argues that it is not Marxist ideology or communists who threaten American power and prestige but the people and societies who envy and hate the United States. According to the author, the erosion of American prosperity and freedom should be arrested through the strengthening of the nation's interior life and the reduction of crime and disorder.
