This book provides a witty analysis of America's fanaticism.Why are Americans so irritatingly fanatical about everything? Why is it obsessed with sex as much as it is with chastity? Why is business seen as next to godliness, as is political correctness? One moment you see the successful, liberty-loving democracy and economy that America calls on the world to emulate. The next you see the reverse: the boom in pornography, political correctness, the gun laws, the rise of religion. George Walden, wittily shows why America's puritanical origins explain why she is the maddening country she is. More religious than any other Western country, however, its faith has become a lifestyle that saps the fanaticism.
