America's new culture war: Free enterprise vs. government control

This excerpt is the from The Washington Post's Outlook section; "America's new culture war: Free enterprise vs. government control" by Arthur C. Brooks. No matter what side you are on (I'm sure you can guess where I stand on this), its a great read. Click here to go to the article.

This is not the culture war of the 1990s. It is not a fight over guns, gays or abortion. Those old battles have been eclipsed by a new struggle between two competing visions of the country's future. In one, America will continue to be an exceptional nation organized around the principles of free enterprise -- limited government, a reliance on entrepreneurship and rewards determined by market forces. In the other, America will move toward European-style statism grounded in expanding bureaucracies, a managed economy and large-scale income redistribution. These visions are not reconcilable. We must choose.
