America The Indispensable Analysis

Satisfactory Essays

Murdoch made some great points in his piece “America the Indispensable” including the idea that the United States will not have leaders until we as a country reaffirm our values and principles, and the idea that other countries long for America to again champion that “human quest for freedom and humane values.” However, Murdoch writes that in America “there is a restless need for revival,” and with this point I disagree. Yes, there are many Americans who long for a revival in our country, who long to reestablish America’s dominance in the global economy and global affairs. However, there are many more Americans who simply do not care, or are too lazy to care. How can America be a great nation when so many of us do not try to be great ourselves?
