Beyond the ridiculousness of social issues, presidential nitpicking, and partisanship, there are people like Mark Daily that inspire us to be better people and live to make the world a better place.
Honestly, I just could not see a person like him emerging from France, China, India, Russia, or any other country. It is a uniquely American personality.
Sure every country has its heroes.
But to be selfless and sacrificing, while ALSO rigorously challenging the moral basis for the sacrifice, requires a type of culture that values individual liberty over all other directives.
