As a young father and a self-proclaimed ‘radically assimilated immigrant’, opinion editor Sohrab Ahmari realised that when it comes to morals and principles he’d want his son to inherit, today’s America comes up short. For millennia, the world’s great moral and religious traditions taught that true happiness lies in pursuing virtue – and accepting limits. But now, free from these stubborn traditions, we all exercise some degree of liberty to live the way we think is most optimal – or, more often than not, merely the easiest. All that remains are the fickle desires that a wealthy, technologically advanced society is equipped to fulfill. In response to this crisis, Ahmari offers 12 questions for us to grapple with – 12 timeless, fundamental queries that challenge our modern certainties.
