Europe's continuing descent into oblivion

Karl Zinsmeister has an excellent piece in the current American Enterprise Magazine, with the very apt title "Europe learns the wrong lessons". The closing paragraph is especially good:

So we must support our natural allies across Europe, and wish that one day they may again lead their societies toward the same freedoms and individual virtues that Europeans once cherished in concert with Americans. And meantime, as we work and wait, many citizens of the United States will experience a private pang of agreement with balladeer Guy Clark—who, in his song “Immigrant Eyes,” thanks his grandfather foremost because “he gave me the gift of this country” by leaving an older one behind.
