Q: What do you see as the single most important issue facing America in the 21st Century?
Sun Tzu once stated, “Know your enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles, you will never be defeated.” America must regain a sense of herself.

Melanie Phillips writes about The enslavement of history (emphasis added)
…The whole point of this anniversary was that Britain took a historic lead in challenging and stopping it.
This initiative, which sprang from Christian principles about the equality and dignity of every human being, gave the lead for other similar movements against slavery around the western world.
Furthermore, it did not merely abolish the British slave trade, but provided the template for a host of other social reform movements during the 19th century, from the democratic franchise to votes for women and the abolition of child labour, along with the great campaigns against poverty, drinking and prostitution.
The anti-slavery movement was thus nothing less than the motor of social justice and decency with which Britain came to be identified. It forged a sense of collective conscience, encapsulating the belief that society could be changed for the better and evil deeds resisted — the belief which lies at the very heart of progressive politics and a civilised society.
