According to New York Times columnist Ross Douthat, we live in a decadent society. But when you think of the word “decadent,” you probably are thinking, lavish, immoral, wasteful, etc.
But that’s not exactly what Douthat means. What he means is a society that is prosperous, powerful, and stuck. Stuck in an economic rut, a creative rut, a political rut; a society that is running out of spiritual and intellectual energy.
Today on the BreakPoint Podcast, John Stonestreet talks with Douthat about his new book, “The Decadent Society: How We Became Victims of Our Own Success.”
