Article: Thank God America Isn't Like Europe -- Yet

"We need to remember why America is exceptional, and why it is so important that America remain exceptional."
An unusually thoughtful opinion piece in the Washington Post. Three thoughts: 1 - Murray is excited about the implications of what we will discover as the development of "hard" sciences lead to a rational basis for the social sciences (so am I). 2 - these will lead us to conclude what Rand has already stated so eloquently on so many occasions. 3 - What Rand has stated clearly, which Murray has all but stated, is that "Capitalism" (the system of individual rights and the only one morally consistent with individualism) *is* the American exceptional characteristic.
