Marking the end of the Second World War, Daniel Strand and Marc LiVecche reflect on the lessons of that great conflict and how it changed America, her perception of herself, and her recognition of her role in the world. Dan goes on a justified rant about a series of silly New York Times [pleonasm!] that draw all the wrong conclusions. Marc stokes his ire, and they then move on to discuss the moral necessity of cultivating, projecting, and deploying power as a necessary means of protecting the innocent, restoring order, pursuing justice, and making peace possible. Lamenting the loss of confidence in this fundamental truth among many American Christians, they wonder aloud about how to restore a proper sense of American purpose in the world.
