Some paleos may suffer from this but not as much as American Latin Catholic traditionalists? Though Latin traditionalists tend to band together; but do they get along with anyone else?
At any rate...
Does American exceptionalism still have something to offer the world?
Our national religion is a sort of divinely-mandated liberalism that makes politics a matter of securing and advancing the equal freedom to pursue our individual goals. Such a religion gives God nothing much to do once His will is accepted and the system set up. He becomes irrelevant except as an ultimate justification for the structure as a whole.
Mr. Kalb, as far as I know, didn't develop as a Paleo thinker in normal circles, though he is now associated with Chronicles Magazine. But I think paleos may dispute his version of American history and the timeline of the decline.
