 American citizenship, saying “truth, justice and the American way—it’s not enough anymore.”  Now he wants to be a “citizen of the world.”

But according to Hoover Fellow Bill Damon, this is a problem for American young people. American values and patriotism have given way to a vague sense of global citizenship.  In Damon’s new book, Failing Civics 101, he points out the crisis of American young people, who are no longer taught to value country and civic purpose and no longer willing to engage in the fight for freedom and democracy.
