Slouching Towards Gomorrah
Judge Bork talked about his book, Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline, published by Reganbooks. The book criticizes liberalism for leading society away from constraints for the individual without acknowledging that there must be some limits on behaviour. These limits have been set in the past by religion, law and common morality. He said the breakdown of morality was accelerated in the 1960s by student radicals and the failure of the establishment to control them. close
