Our Finest Hour

“What pundits have called the Battle of Facts is nearly over. I expect that the Battle of Governing is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of our civilization. Upon it depends our own American life, and the long continuity of our institutions. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us. Trumpish forces know that they will have to break us or lose the war. If we can stand up to them, all may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if America and its constitution last for a thousand years, men will still say, “This was their finest hour.”
