Ben Stein's How To Ruin The United States of America

Ben Stein, who is probably more recognizable to Americans from the skit below from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, is actually a very accomplished financial author. He was just on Fox News talking about the Stimulus Package, and I decided to do a little research into what he's been up to lately. His latest book is called How to Ruin the United States of America, and in the book, here are some ways Stein says we can ruin this country:
  • Trust the United Nations to protect us and our security.
  • Make it unlawful to worship God or even to show images of the Ten Commandments.
  • Convert our universities into fortresses of anti-Americanism, hatred of freedom, and centers of confusion and ignorance.
  • Encourage contempt for the family and for the community.
  • Allow Hollywood to brainwash us into believing that only suckers and criminals fight for their country.
  • Treat the military, the police, firefighters, and teachers as losers and pay them starvation wages.
All of this probably sounds familiar because it's already happening. This is how all of Stein's books go. They're tongue-in-cheek, but they're usually spot on with what's really happening in America.

And, for your viewing pleasure, here's Stein's famous appearance in Ferris Bueller's Day Off:
