The Things That Matter Most
Cal Thomas talked about his book, The Things that Matter Most, published by HarperCollins. It concerns what he terms the “nine broken promises of the sixties.” These promises include such things as the Great Society. He believes that America must return to these “things that matter most,” such as traditional religious, moral and ethical values. In this collection of essays, Mr. Thomas argues that the ethics of earlier times as well as hard work, religion, and low taxes are the solutions to problems caused by liberalism in contemporary America. close
