    Americans Have Shifted Dramatically on What Values Matter Most

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/america...st-11566738001

    The values that Americans say define the national character are changing, as younger generations rate patriotism, religion and having children as less important to them than did young people two decades ago, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey finds.

    When the Journal/NBC News survey asked Americans 21 years ago to say which values were most important to them, strong majorities picked the principles of hard work, patriotism, commitment to religion and the goal of having children.

    Today, hard work remains atop the list, but the shares of Americans listing the other three values have fallen substantially, driven by changing priorities of people under age 50.

    Some 61% in the new survey cited patriotism as very important to them, down 9 percentage points from 1998, while 50% cited religion, down 12 points. Some 43% placed a high value on having children, down 16 points from 1998.

    Views varied sharply by age. Among people 55 and older, for example, nearly 80% said patriotism was very important, compared with 42% of those ages 18-38—the millennial generation and older members of Gen-Z. Two-thirds of the older group cited religion as very important, compared with fewer than one-third of the younger group.

    “There’s an emerging America where issues like children, religion and patriotism are far less important. And in America, it’s the emerging generation that calls the shots about where the country is headed,” said Republican pollster Bill McInturff, who conducted the survey with Democratic pollster Jeff Horwitt.
    We have the same debate in Sweden. That we must teach immigrants "our values" and defend "our values".

    And in America it is not only about teaching immigrants American values but also export such values to other countries either by bombing the Iraqis into democracy, or through foreign aids to organizations that promotes women's rights in Africa and such things. This is White Man's Burden, and alreadly Kipling wrote about it 200 years ago.

    What are American values to you?

    There is no one set of traditional American values. In the book "Albion Seed" by David Hackett Fischer he outlines four migrations to America from Britain; each settled a different part of America :



    Each had different notions of Democracy and Freedom. Anyway, before the 9/11 attack , on the world trade center, many Americans valued libertarian type freedom, adventurousness, and merit and the affirmative action liberal classes have been attacking those values for a long time now and the federal government is an overarching beast that spies on it's citizens Goerge Orwell 1984 style. I am not patriotic because according to the book "The People's History of the United States" by Howard Zinn the system of the USA controls people through the schools, the churches, the families and patriotism. As far as I am concerned I don't care if fat ass Americans get stabbed by British redcoat bayonets at this point that is how bad the country as gotten :

    Oh, yeah , I mentioned some books above but I should mention a book for this subject :

    " the federal government is an overarching beast that spies on it's citizens Goerge Orwell 1984 style."

    ^The book is "Data and Goliath" by Bruce Schneier.
