Abstract:

Can a country be like a marriage that has run out of cash and steam? Eventually, even those who love each other sometimes conclude they cannot stay together. Enriquez's insights into the financial, political, and cultural issues we face will lead you to the question no one has yet put on the table: Could "becoming untied" ever happen here? When the enemy was outside--for example, when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik and people feared America would lose the brain race--we rallied. Now the enemy is within, and we polarize. Defaming the legitimacy of people on the "other" side becomes the currency of the day, where people in blue states are seen as godless liberal elitists and those in red states are seen as, well, rednecks. Countries, even one as powerful and successful as America, live on fault lines. When a fault line splits, it's near impossible to put things back together again.--From publisher description.
