Susan Sontag on America

It is the genius of the United States, a profoundly conservative country in ways that Europeans find difficult to fathom, to have elaborated a form of conservative thinking that celebrates the new rather than the old.

That is from Susan Sontag’s new At the Same Time: Essays and Speeches.  This volume is not her best work, but it is still better than what almost anyone else comes up with.
