Matthew Continetti talked about “The Age of Irresponsibility,” his article for the March 2, 2009, issue of The Weekly Standard. In the article he outlines his thoughts on political and moral corruption. He writes, “There are moments when it seems as though every figure who waltzes across the public stage is a cheat, a fraud, a liar, or a failure.” He cites examples of politicians, sports figures, and celebrities. He believes that President Obama’s assertion that the problem is political is wrong. He says the problem is systemic. He then goes on to reveal what he calls an “alternative vision of society.”
